    I have a whole package of tweaks to make Windows 7 start and run faster.
    Most of those are leftovers from XP.
    They also work equally well for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Amazing!!!
    I just verified several of my W7 tweaks on 8.1 today. It works!

    But when I look in the registry of all three OS's, I find the same entries.
    It's like they are all the same OS, but with different GUI's.

    I know it's really not quite that simple, but it sure looks like it.
    Is MS just pulling a fast one on us, making us think we're getting a new OS,
    when all we're really getting is a new paint job?

    This is irrelevant to my question.

    Then you really didn't understand my answer.
    I'm sorry that I wasn't more direct.

    Best answer:
    I'm the best Optimizer for every OS from 95 to 8.1. Eh?
    Why? Well, because I've been doing it for 30+ years, tweaking and tuning MS OS's for best performance,
    in a professional environment.

    You don't need special optimization for 8.1 because what worked to optimize XP, Vista, Win-7 and Win-8 also works for Win-8.1.
    And NO one program is ever going to do that. It ain't a gonna happen!
    Just like NO one piece of AV software is ever going to 100% protect you from every bad thing out there.

    Good Luck!

    And also, programs like that are more likely to break something than to do any good. I made a lots of money repairing systems after inept use of such programs.

    No offense but I kind of disagree. Before, I used Auslogics Boostspeed. It was very good and never did any harm.
