Easily Reset Windows Settings to Default State with RefreshPC

On my quest in searching for a tool or software that can actually restore deleted services that belongs to Windows and not just simply restoring the startup settings, I found a tool called RefreshPC which claims to refresh system services. RefreshPC is a free tool created by the same company that develops XP Smoker or 7Smoker that is able to reset registry settings, system services and clean up temporary folders and prefetch files. RefreshPC works on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 on both 64bit and 32bit versions. The screenshot of the program shows that RefreshPC is an easy to use tool that is able to automatically perform all 4 actions by simply clicking a button.

I tried clicking the Refresh My Windows 7 Settings button on my test machine and within seconds a report window pops out telling me that it has reset 169 Windows 7 registry entries to their default values, reset 144 Windows 7 services to their default values and cleaned all of temp folders and prefetch files.

During installation, please take note that RefreshPC setup installer by default enables installation of WareSoft Search Toolbar. Uncheck all 3 checkboxes to prevent the installation of WareSoft Software Toolbar, setting home page to waresoftsearch.com and Yahoo! as default search provider, then only click the Next button.
