    It must be a False Positive. Thank you for giving Info about Detection by Malwarebytes. It will be very nice if you can tell Malwarebytes to ignore it. Tokener is a well-known fellow of reboot.pro forum and I trust his .NET Framework Enumerator VirusTotal Malwarebytes and MS Defender have no problem with System_Info-53.zip

    Half of what atmzzrSystemCheck is doing, is available already in System_Info. e.g. .NET Framework Info, System Info and DirectX are giving similar info. A problem is that atmzzrSystemCheck is in conflict with Security Software, e.g. SmartScreen.

    If you have forgotten the password, then you can with 7-zip installed double-click on the archive and can peek inside the archive and read the password that is needed to unlock the Encrypted part. So that makes it very handy and at the same time it is protected against download failure due to false-positive warning of AntiVirus and Defender Software

    Thanks for your detailed reply. Ok that sounds convincing to me. I will Add HP System Diagnostics again to next version.

    System_Info

    I think the Info given by HP System Diagnostics is well covered by Save System Info, Drive Info List, Device Manager and DirectX Diagnostics. Or do you think that HP System Diagnostics is giving Info that is missing now ?

  19. In folder Win_Reduce_Trusted-43\Win_reduce\File_List you find files that for each category describe the files to keep (SysWOW64 and WindowsApps) or remove (all other categories) base_winsxs_2.cmd of cdob is used to reduce WinSxS folder Win_Reduce_Trusted can be used to reduce Windows installed in partition, but Windows must be offline e.g. by booting with PE or other Windows More Info post #1 and #2 and in VHD_WIMBOOT PDF
  20. Only above is relevant to you for Compact mode Install and you don't need page 3 which is for WimBoot mode Install Where and on what type of drive is your VHD located ? What type of VHD did you create ? Did you succeed in booting Windows in 25 GB VHD using WinNTSetup ? (according to step 1, elaborated on page 2) Did you succeed in booting Windows in 10 GB VHD using VHD_WIMBOOT ? (according to step 2) Where and How do you fail ? What Error Message ? Give ScreenShot of Windows Disk Management showing disks and drives.
  21. Stop at step 6 is wrong. Then Windows is not installed at all and besides the VHD remains mounted as drive Y: For VHD_WIMBOOT prg the VHD must be unmounted which would have occurred if you did at least step 9 but it is better to follow all steps of page 2 In VHD_WIMBOOT you can Select VHD file After select of System Drive (often drive C: where Wimboot folder with Captured WIM file and VHD file are located) Then the Capture button can be used .....
  22. In that case: 1. WinNTSetup according to step 2-6 of page 2 as you did already 2. VHD_WIMBOOT - Capture WimBoot LZX and Apply in Compact LZX mode in Fixed VHD 10 or 15 GB - Offline Windows This second step saves a lot of space and creates the Boot entries on Selected Boot Drive - Nothing more to do - Always use the supplied Firewall App Blocker and Enable WhiteList to Allow Internet Browser only - This is the easiest way to block unwanted internet traffic including Windows Update and prevents the growth of Used Size inside VHD
  23. For iCloud on iTunes you should first try the Full Win10x64.vhd as prepared according to page 2 of the Manual VHD_WIMBOOT PDF It is quite likely that such feature does not work in the Mini-10x64.vhd where the focus is on saving space for fast loading into RAMDISK.
  24. Sure you can make and use copies of the Mini-10x64.vhd file. Always keep the captured WIM file so that you also can create new VHD's with different size. I prefer to use portable apps outside the VHD so that the VHD used size does not grow that much. Always use the provided Firewall App Blocker and Enable WhiteList to Allow Internet Browser only. This is the easiest way to block unwanted internet traffic including Windows Update and prevents the growth of Used Size inside VHD. I have no experience with Hyper V .... When you boot the VHD as RAMDISK then the original VHD does not change whatever you do on line ...
