Whether it’s a software developer, any programmer, any computer operator in a bank or a user who uses computer just for entertainment and personal purpose, for each one of them data security is one of the biggest concerns. Data Security has always been one of the most important issues for all the computer users irrespective of the domain in which they work and the kind of data that they have. For this various method and tools are already present which provides the complete security especially for the windows users and by configuring some of the features already present in the system, users can feel complete security for their data and system from unauthorized access.

Similar to the tools discussed above, one more tool has been recently launched. Accounts Tuner is a small and smart application introduced for Windows 7 users which allows the user to change the default User Account settings so that one can easily secure the user account with just a simple procedure and with the help of few mouse clicks. This utility is available as a freeware and as said earlier allows the user to change different settings linked with the user account such as password, age, and many more. With these changes, this program allows the user to introduce some additional security settings for the user’s Windows accounts. Normally, such settings are changed by means of a local or group security policy as there are no local tools to modify most of these settings in home versions of Windows. So, specially due to this reason this small utility may prove to be really helpful for all the users.

Password change can even be increased up to infinity which means that there is no need to change the password ever as it will not expire.
