For microsft to PULL the current version of the power toys is very suspicious to me ....

Why actually completely remove the current ones even if they are updating them ?

Was there a issue with the P/Toys that none of us know about ?

I agree it does seem a bit strange that they removed the actual download to the current ones ...

Maybe they are going to charge $$ for the next lot of toys ?

Security hole maybe ?

Wow, things must be getting really bad... Everyone of us has become a cynic.... LOL Especially when it envolves M$... What's really sad is that I agree completley it does seem a bit fishy for them to remove it altogather... Times like this I'm glad I still can always boot into Linux, M$ can not be trusted HE, HE, HE...

Yep, gotta agree with all of you..

The silence is ominous




IF there was a security breach, it must have been pretty bad to yank everything!

IF it was so they could charge, there are too many freebies and it is too easy to adjust the registry.

Hmmmmmmm:mad: :confused:

It is strange , if they were going to upgrade them , why not just leave the old ones available for Download ?

I am thinking there is a Security issue or something major . who knows though

Just glad we can still download them from here

I am sure that if there was a serious security issue with the existing powertoys then Microsoft would have asked us to remove them from this site.

I think they pulled them as you can login to a domain using XP home using them :)


Using TweakUI


Im not sure if it works with active directory services though.



:D

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
