  1. I used Onepiece's Windows 2000 postSP4 Update Pack and integrated it using the RyanVM Integrator. I could have used nLite, but I had never used the RyanVM Integrator before and was curious to see how it compared with nLite. For more information, see: Onepiece Win2k postSP4 UpdatePack v5.0.3 FINAL Only one download link for that update pack still works, which is this one: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B5EBubruZ8REZThfN2ZsTktMQ0U
  2. Can't you just uninstall Lenovo Vantage and then reinstall Lenovo Settings? It appears that Lenovo Settings is still available here: https://apps.microsoft.com/detail/9WZDNCRFJ12P If that doesn't work for some reason, you may be able to get Lenovo Settings back by performing a factory reset. That's a somewhat extreme measure, but if you want the Lenovo Settings app back badly enough, then you may want to consider it. How to Factory Reset a Lenovo Laptop
  3. Do you mean something like this?
  4. I recently remembered this software and wondered if it's still being developed, and I was happy to see that it is. Anyway, I thought I'd make a post about xoblite since it looks like nobody on here has been talking about it since 2009. Website: http://xoblite.net/docs/
  5. I haven't tried AtlasOS, but based on reading their installation instructions, it appears that what they are offering is a utility for removing certain "features" from Windows 10 during installation. If my interpretation is correct, this is similar to the process that Windows 10 Decrapifier uses.
  6. AtlasOS is a stripped down version of Windows 10. I just learned about this project and thought that some of the other members here might be interested in it.
  7. Thanks for the info and suggestions. It does appear that what I would like to do is impossible, or at least nearly so. In case anyone else is looking for similar information, I did find some software that is supposed to be able to facilitate the transfer of software: Transferring Installed Programs from One Computer to Another Windows 11/10 - Here Is the Best Way https://www.easeus.com/pc-transfer/copy-installed-software.html Best EaseUS Todo PCTrans Alternatives https://alternativeto.net/software/easeus-todo-pctrans/ Unfortunately, these types of utilities are not universal -- they will only work for some software. And MS Office 2013 is not one of them.
  8. I can't see myself using this (because I prefer Xfce), but maybe someone here would be interested in trying this. Ready to ditch Windows for Linux? This is the ideal distro for you https://www.zdnet.com/article/ready-to-ditch-windows-for-linux-this-is-the-ideal-distro-for-you/ Website: https://www.windowsfx.org/
  9. Shadow Defender http://www.shadowdefender.com/ It's a type of sandbox program that prevents unwanted changes to the system.
  10. I was recently given a Lenovo laptop that's about ten years old. It has Windows 8.1 on it and I am about to upgrade it to Windows 10 22H2. However, soon after I will wipe the partition and perform a clean reinstallation of Windows 10. Is there a way to preserve the non-Windows software that came with this laptop so it can be restored or reinstalled after the clean reinstallation? The laptop came with MS Office 2013 and some other software, and I'd like to keep them if I can.
  11. Hello Joaquim, Do the files you are trying to include have long file names? If so, try shortening them so that the first part of the file name is no more than eight (8) characters. I remember doing that when I used nLite. I'm not sure it was absolutely necessary, but I did that and didn't have any problems when I used nLite.
  12. I've had no problems with version It runs very light on the system, and with the configuration I am using the security is very strong. Any unknown software that gets on the system is automatically blocked. Because the security is so tight, I need to temporarily disable the protection before installing new software. Other than that, it doesn't require hardly any attention and just works quietly in the background. I used the information in this tutorial to install and configure Comodo Personal Firewall https://malwaretips.com/threads/comodofix-set-up-comodo-for-trouble-free-protection.93291/
  13. I suspect that what happened is that Windows 7 somehow tampered with the partition that Windows 2000 is on. Do not use Windows 7 to write to the Windows 2000 partition and vice versa. And make sure that Windows 7 is not configured to automatically check or defragment the Windows 2000 partition (and vice versa). The reason why this is likely to matter is that Windows 2000 uses an older version of the NTFS file system.
  14. Windows 2000 is a great operating system, and an ideal OS to use on old hardware that is too old to run a recent version of Windows or even GNU/Linux. Regarding security concerns, there are ways to harden Windows 2000 to make it much harder to infect, and there are many uses for a computer that don't involve going online. I would probably install a firewall and completely block Internet Explorer from being able to access the internet, or I might even disable the network adapter and use the computer as a standalone system with no network access whatsoever.
  15. That is the one I am using. I downloaded it from here: https://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/Kaspersky-Free.shtml It is still available from there, via the "External mirror - 2018" link. I don't really like it because it's very slow, but since I'm only using it as an on-demand scanner I decided to keep it (for now). Tip: Click on the Tools button and you can turn on Cloud Protection (if that's something you want).
