  1. Hey everyone, I'm in need of deleting a lot of useless shortcuts created from some of my unattended setup disc, namely stuff like Favorites, Start Menu folders and links, etc. The problem is, none of the files show up until AFTER my batch file is finished and the Windows desktop & start-menu loads for the first time.

    Does anyone have any recommendation how to get a 2nd batch file to run after the Windows desktop loads, preferably AFTER the 1st one finishes and after an automatic reboot?

    Also, I'd like to add a DOS command that restarts Windows after the batch file completes. A timer would be nice too.

    BTW, I've searched but the search is kinda... hinky sometimes. Couldn't quite find the words to describe what I was looking for and the closest match brought up numerous different things.

    Thanks for the help in advanced guys. :thumbup

  2. Outpost has worked great for me (v2.1) + the blockpost plugin (+ altkernel, huge blocklists and doesn't bog the system down like ZA) You can even run it in the background and it idles around 00 - 02 CPU usage and uses up about 14mb of RAM (at least on my system, my buddy said it uses about 18 on his).

    I used ZA 4 for a while but it was slow as hell when using a big blocklist. ZA 5 seemed to have a lot of problems so I started using Outpost.

  3. Everything goes just fine until the "Installing Devices" message displays during the installation of my custom Windows XP CD. Here is a look at my WINNT.SIF file.

    It's probably just because I don't have quotes around my driver inst. paths... but tell me what you think.

    P.S.

    Should I put quotes around ALL the values?

  4. Wait, ok, now I have another very tiny problem. I reg-hacked (using someone elses) my system and I have it tweaked the way I want it except for one thing: every shortcut is displayed as "*.lnk" and it's really annoying. I much rather just see the shortcut overlay (which I do).

    Anyone know which reg setting this is so I can delete it? I would post my reg file but it's hella-long (20kb, to be exact). Is this to big? LOL

    EDIT: I also have a problem with my desktop being stuck in the "Center" position and it's grayed out so I cannot change it. Again, I have no idea which reg setting this is. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    EDIT: Ok, ok, last thing, promise. I'm trying to find a reg hack that disables all Windows system sounds.

  5. Hey everyone, my first time creating an unattended installation and everything has gone fairly painlessly until now. I load my .ISO in Virtual PC and I get the error (after I boot from CD)

    "Line 29 of the INF file \i386\winnt.sif is invalid. Setup cannot continue. Press any key to restart."

    I've checked the code over in the .sif file and I can't find anything that would be causing this error, besides a few misspellings which I corrected.

    Here's my code.
