  1. I have no idea if this will work its just a guess, this tweak is generally used for Windows Update to do a similar thing.
  2. To make a winnt.sif you can download this program: WINNT.SIF CREATOR Its pretty easy to use.
  3. You can download the PRE-SP3 patches (as they have being referred to) from here . You will have to read up on how to slipstream/integrate them into your cd after slipstreaming/integrating sp2. nlite is good for this.
  4. Might be due to a refresh rate your setting in winnt.sif. If you set it too high your monitor screen will just go black. EDIT: nlite doesnt use the winnt.sif to remove outlook express it will use some kind of file deletion etc. Im not really sure but I dont think its done in the sif.
  5. ye this thread is alot to read through, fix up an updated file to a new post will be alot easier.
  6. ; Disable Windows Installer Rollback [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer] "DisableRollback"=dword:00000001 .Net Framework wont install with this tweak activated, I havent seen anyone report this error before but if you have set this tweak, set it to =dword:00000000 and that should fix it, or if your doing it to your cd just delete the tweak.
  7. what exactly do you mean? If you have slipstreamed .net 1.1 and the sp1 there should be no items in Windows Update since there already installed.
  8. This is a problem with a registry tweak you have applied or some modification to explorer you have made. I have never come across this error before or come across anyone else having this problem. If you could post your registry tweak file, preferably HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT tweaks and we could see what could cause the problem. Also if you make any modifications to explorer in your install, maybe installing a hacked version of explorer.exe or some other tweaks.
  9. or you could just go disable the service and it will not bother you again: ; Automatic Updates Service [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv] "Start"=dword:00000004
  10. services generally run svchost.exe but in some small cases viruses can emulate the process. Check what services your running and look them up against Blackvipers Service Guide to see details. I attached the pdf file below since his site is down atm. XPServices24oct2002.pdf
  11. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes] @=".None" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\.Default\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\CriticalBatteryAlarm\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\DeviceConnect\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\DeviceDisconnect\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\DeviceFail\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\LowBatteryAlarm\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\MailBeep\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\SystemAsterisk\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\SystemExclamation\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\SystemExit\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\SystemHand\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\SystemNotification\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\SystemStart\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\WindowsLogoff\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\.Default\WindowsLogon\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\Conf\Person Joins\.Current] @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\Conf\Person Leaves\.Current] @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\Conf\Receive Call\.Current] @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\Conf\Receive Request to Join\.Current] @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\Explorer\BlockedPopup\.current] @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\Explorer\EmptyRecycleBin\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\Explorer\Navigating\.Current] @=- @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\Explorer\SecurityBand\.current] @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\MSNMSGR\MSNMSGR_Buzz\.Current] @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\MSNMSGR\MSNMSGR_ContactOnline\.Current] @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\MSNMSGR\MSNMSGR_NewAlert\.Current] @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\MSNMSGR\MSNMSGR_NewMail\.Current] @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\MSNMSGR\MSNMSGR_NewMessage\.Current] @="" [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\AppEvents\Schemes\Apps\MSNMSGR\MSNMSGR_NewSMSMessage\.Current] @="" Should work for "NO SOUNDS"
  12. I dont think he means system beeps, I think he means more in the meaning of "sound schemes" to disable sounds such as "Empty Recycle Bin" etc? If this is the case then Windows does have a scheme for No Sounds so there should be a tweak that will load the "No Sounds" scheme.
  13. 2. Create a User Account: You can do this in a .cmd or .bat file, shown below replace <Account Name> with your name for the account ie. Mike. ECHO Creating Account.. net user <Account Name> /add net localgroup Administrators <Account Name> /add net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited 3. Create Desktop Icons: You can do this with a little command prompt program called shortcut.exe. You can create desktop or start menu shortcuts with this program. Download Here
  14. I was abit faster on the variable name but you explained how to implement it, never tried it myself since I just use $OEM$ All these people with these advanced unattended multi installs
  15. I originally misunderstood your question. I know with some programs you can use a %CDROM% variable but im not sure if this can be used all the time or if its program specific. You could try it
  16. Safest way? If you dont want to set all the files to being safe then just put .bat files in the tweak like below. ; Disable Popup For Running Files You Download From Internet [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download] "CheckExeSignatures"="no" "RunInvalidSignatures"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments] "SaveZoneInformation"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations] "LowRiskFileTypes"=".bat;" I dont see any problems with that. But I may be wrong
  17. This registry tweak removes it: ; Disable Popup For Running Files You Download From Internet [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download] "CheckExeSignatures"="no" "RunInvalidSignatures"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments] "SaveZoneInformation"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations] "LowRiskFileTypes"=".zip;.rar;.nfo;.txt;.exe;.bat;.com;.cmd;.reg;.msi;.htm;.html;.gif;.bmp;.jpg;.avi;.mpg;.mpeg;.mov ;.mp3;.m3u;.wav;"
  18. Try these below: ; Put MY Computer Shortcut On Desktop [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel] "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000 ; Put MY Documents Shortcut On Desktop [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel] "{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}"=dword:00000000 The program in my signature has these and many more, give it a try.
  19. I use the following in my Winnt.sif and it works fine for me, I have a edited classic theme which I install using the $OEM$ method (has screensaver settings removed). [Shell] CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%WinDir%\Resources\Themes\Windows Classical.theme" DefaultStartPanelOff = "No" Setting the custom theme to the default classic one will set the classic theme in windows and by setting it this way the xp start menu is still there and isnt the horrible classic one that is set with the winsif command "DefaultThemesOff = Yes". [Shell] CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%WinDir%\Resources\Themes\Windows Classic.theme" DefaultStartPanelOff = "No"
  20. It depends on what you want to install. Some programs store register information in the registry and some dont. Programs such as Winzip/coverxp/alcohol120%/winimage/winiso/mirc etc can be registered in the registry. Check the applications section in my my registry tweakage program: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=42693
  21. If im correct I think you can copy files using the $OEM$ on install, so you could use the folder structrure: $OEM$\$DOC\$USERPROFILE$\My Documents Just an idea
  22. ah sry bout that, I was rushing to reply before I went out. Thanks to Yzöwl for correcting me Also for your current question try reading here, http://unattended.msfn.org/global/cmdlines.htm
