    Not sure how to do that, but I would take on this task only if I had exceptionally good skills and knowledge of hardware and operating system(s). Part of this "tuning" involves tweaking Windows registry, which is technically easy to do, but if you get it wrong you might render OS useless. Maybe first thing to do is to learn how to create system restore point programmatically, then how to read/write win registry and get hardware information.

    I would suggest Visual Basic is not the right platform for such an endeavor. I'm moving to Beginner Programming for lack of a better place for this inquiry.

    I'm sorry to say but "get a master's degree in computer science" is step 1. Start small. PC tuneup programs (when they work at all) are expert-level stuff.
