  1. I have heard of it. Looks interesting from the information on the company's website. I might request an evaluation copy just to try it for myself. I'm always on the lookout for good security apps... especially for corporations. If I get a demo and a chance to test it, I'll post back with my results.

  2. For friends and customers who either don't want to pay for security software or can't, I usually give them Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and Avast Home Edition. I've had very good luck with both apps and neither one really slows down your system. For those who want something a little more thorough, I recommend Kaspersky Internet Security. You do have to purchase their software, though. Other than that most of the security measures I implement are OS tweaks and teaching the EU how to be careful and smart when browsing the web.

  3. Thank you all for your help. I guess I was just making things out to be more complicated than they actually were. I pointed nLite to the Service Pack 3 executable that I downloaded from Microsoft and it automatically extracted the files and integrated them into my project. I then made my project into a bootable ISO image, burned it onto a CD and tested it on a spare PC. It installed flawlessly and by all signs the SP3 integration took. A big thank you to the maker(s) of nLite.

  4. Hi there.

    First of all, welcome to the forums.

    Second of all, The problem is that you extracted the SP and trying to run the update. nLite actually does the extraction for you and does the integration. Just point the hotfixes to where you downloaded the serice pack and continue.

    This should solve your issue.


    Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I'm afraid I'm still a little confused, though. Let me ask this: once I get to the screen in nLite where it asks what tasks I want to perform, do I click Service Packs or Hotfixes? Then once that it completed, what file(s) exactly do I need to point the program to? Thank you again.

  5. Hello all,

    I am new here, but have been in the IT industry for years. Anyway, I was hoping someone from this board could help me out with nLite. I have used it once or twice in the past to integrate drivers into an OS, but never for anything beyond that. Right now I just need some help integrating a service pack into an OS. I receive an error the last few times I've attempted. Here's some more information:

    My OS: Windows XP Pro SP3

    What I'm trying to do: integrate SP3 onto a Windows XP Pro SP2 CD-ROM.

    nLite reads my disc fine and copies its contents to my hard drive for editing, but when I go to the next step and try and integrate SP3 into my project I always get an error. It says that not all the files needed for an integration or slipstream are present. Basically what I did was download SP3 from Microsoft's website and extract its contents onto my hard drive. After that I told nLite where the i386\update\update.exe file was and then after a few seconds I receive the error I mentioned earlier.

    Anyway, if anyone can help me out I would greatly appreciate it. Like I said, I don't know much about this program and it's very possible that I've made a stupid mistake or something. Thank you!
