  1. Have you tried using the cleanmgr utility? You can clear out some temporary and other types of unnecessary files with that. Start > Run, enter: cleanmgr You should decrease the space for Temporary Internet Files. Go to control panel > Internet Options Click Settings Adjust the amount of space that is used to around 50mb. By default, the setting is usually way to high. That will prevent your browser cache from becoming too large and possibly causing other problems. If you don't use hibernation, you can disable that and free up some space: Control Panel > Power Options, go to the Hibernate Tab, uncheck 'Enable hibernation. Click OK, click OK. That will free up space on your drive equal to the amount of ram you have installed. If you are using System Restore, you can reduce the amount of space allocated for that: Right click on 'My Computer', select properties, go to the System Restore tab, Click Settings. From there, you can adjust the amount of space used for saving restore points or disable it entirely. You can also lower the space used for the recycle bin: Right click on the 'Recycle Bin', select Properties. You can configure the bin for each drive or use a global setting. You can set the photoshop scratch disk to a different drive\partition. Go to Edit > Preferences > Plug-ins and Scratch Disks. Virtual memory can be adjusted. You allocate space for a page file on another drive/partition. Right Click on my computer, select properties, go to the advanced tab, click settings under performance, go to the advanced tab, click change and adjust your settings.
  2. If Winzip.lnk is on a particular user's desktop, then deleting it from "%allusersprofile%\desktop" won't work. %userprofile% refers to the profile directory of the currently logged on user. del "%userprofile%\desktop\winzip.lnk"
  3. See this: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...=0entry161263 Heres the gist of it: Setup your taskbar position and size like you want, log off and then back on, then export this key from your registry: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2] Use the settings you exported in your unattended setup.

  5. Your Hijack This log looks fine. Nothing amiss there. 30 isn't uncommon. While online, I have 28 processes running. Many have quite a few more. Also, you don't have many items that launch at startup. The only thing that you can do without is the splash screen for McAfee VirusScan ASaP on-line scanner. see http://www.windowsstartup.com/wso/detail.php?id=1804 Run Hijack This, Scan and check this item: O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [myCIO.com Splash] C:\WINDOWS\myCIO\VScan\Splash.exe Click 'Fix Checked'. svchost.exe is a legitimate process. It's normal to have several running concurrently. Refer to this for more info: http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/svchost.exe.html As it is now, your system seems to be in good shape.
  6. If it does what Jeremy needs, then more power to him. Wedge1: lmao @ mom's porn collection. Actually, a stripped down system like Jeremy's would be great for a Digital Audio Workstation. That's what I'm currently working on.
  7. Nope. You're in the same boat with vmware as it comes with its own drivers. Getting back to your user account problem: You need to call that batch file. It won't execute on it's own. Place 'useraccounts.cmd' in $OEM$ Make a text file named 'Cmdlines.txt'. In that file place this: [COMMANDS] "useraccounts.cmd" Save it to the $OEM$ folder. If you already have a cmdlines.txt file, then just append "useraccounts.cmd" to the end. The quotes are necessary. //I was trying to post this earlier but I think MSFN had some trouble...
  8. Virtual PC has its own drivers for these devices. You won't be able to test your drivers with Virtual PC. As far as your user account problem, I'm not sure. At what point during the installation is 'useraccounts.cmd' being executed?
  9. Those registry keys will vary from installation to installation. Try using this: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\PopUpInspector\Keys] "Registration"="removed" That goes for any keys/values in HKEY_USERS\...\ Use HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ instead.
  10. Sounds like you got a real mess on your hands. At this point, I'd recommend doing a repair install: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;315341 Follow the instructions for Method 2. Your data and programs will be left intact but you will need to re-install Windows updates.
  11. I'd like to be able to save my view preferences in open/save dialouges. It's odd that you have thumbnail views in your save dialogue. What browser/download manager are you using. For me, both in IE and Firefox, I get the default list view when saving.
  12. Free Download Manager works with Netscape.
  13. Free Download Manager is packaged with Inno Setup. Use this: fdminst.exe /sp- /verysilent
  14. I use Free Download Manager and it works great. Here's a page with a review of download managers: http://www.safer-networking.org/print.php?...anagers〈=en
  15. Task Manager settings are stored in this registry key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\TaskManager] Configure Task Manager the way you want it, log off and then back on, then export that key from your registry and use those settings during your setup.
  16. rd /q /s "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp\" That shoud work. If there are any files in that directory that are currently in use, they will not be deleted. Otherwise, the temp directory as well as all files and subfolders will be deleted. That's fine as Windows will recreate the Temp directory at the next logon.
  17. The option to not cache thumbnails doesn't disable thumbnails. It disables the caching of thumbnails. I have never found a way to make the settings stick in the open/save dialogue. It's dependant on the application in question. Most apps use the list view and unless a particular program saves the last settings used, that's the view that will be used. Same with other default views.
  18. Hello mazin. Sorry for a late reply but I didn't see your post until now. I have successfully installed Console unattended. After extracting the Console archive, I used this in my RunOnceEx.cmd: "RunDll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 0 %systemdrive%\programs\console\console.inf" /f That same command, minus the /f, should work from a batch file, GUIRunOnce, etc. Here's the page for console: http://sourceforge.net/projects/console/ For people who use another command processor other than cmd.exe, you can set the ComSpec value in this registry key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment] Console will use whatever ComSpec is set to by default. For example, mine is set to %SystemDrive%\4nt\4nt.exe. For my unattended CD, I used an expandable string value so %systemdrive% would be resolved correctly.
  19. I use Console. http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/console...ta.zip?download See this thread: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=23165&st=0
  20. If I understand you right, when you log off or reboot, you see the luna theme. This is normal. Theme settings are user dependent so when no user is logged on, as is the case during reboot, the default theme is used. You can export your theme settings from the registry and then merge them to the [HKEY_USERS] hive. After you set your theme to your liking, log out then back in, open regedit and export the following keys: (right click on each key and select export then save the file in a convenient location) [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Cursors] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ThemeManager] Next, open each file and change every instance of HKEY_CURRENT_USER to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT Example, change [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors] to [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors] Finally, add these settings to your registry tweak file. Your theme settings should now be in effect during logoff/reboot. You can test this on your current installation first and then incorporate these settings into your unattended CD.
  21. The way your setup is now, you need to have the install directory copied to the system drive. You have two options: (1) You can include a command to delete the install folder after your programs are installed. This command placed at the end of your batch file, before the exit command, should do the trick: rd /Q /S %systemdrive%\install\ 2) You can place your installation programs somewhere other than the $oem$ folder on your CD and install the programs directly from the CD. You can search the forums for info on how do this For your setup, option 1 is the simplest. You won't have to change anything.
