  1. Thank you for your opinions, gonna leave the 16 color icons. And in my opinion as well the 256*256 icons take up way too much space, gonna remove them. Yes, it's all going to be Vista and Vista-like icons. I have taken them from Energize, XPize, VTP, from around the net and some I've even made myself Almost done now.
  2. Ok, but in a normal environment they are not needed? If I ever get a system failure I just reinstall (15min of staring at a progressbar).
  3. Hiyas I'm making my own shellpack using XPeros installer system and I was wondering do I need to save all the 256 color (8 bit) and 16 color (4 bit) icons? Shouldn't XP be able to use the 32-bits icons everywhere? Cause some icons only have 32*32, 4-bit icons. Shouldn't I be able to replace them with 32*32, 32-bit?
  4. Check out this topic to get the needed files and key. Then just borrow a friends Xp Home and throw the oembios.* files and winnt.sif on it and you are good to go.
  5. No problem with the link, works fine for me with FF 2.0
  6. That and more stuff is located in syssetup.dll. For an easy way to edit WinNtBBU.dll look here: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...p;hl=winntbbued
  7. Thanks DigeritePrime, didn't know there was any mods for it.
  8. Check your XPCD, you might find a folder named "Support" there, in it you will find a folder named "Tools". Now in there is a CAB file named DEPLOY.CAB, just use WinRAR to unRAR it. Now you should have a file called setupmgr.exe which is a Microsoft made program to do the answer file, you'll also find ref.chm, which is the helpfile.
  9. 1. Deus Ex (by far the best game ever made) 2. Operation Flashpoint + Expansions 3. Heroes of Might and Magic 3
  10. The only way to access the Administrator account in XP Home is in SafeMode.
  11. Could the "old computer" icon be added to the changelist of XPize?
  12. Look in the middle of this page: http://herby.virtualplastic.net/diwt.htm Not sure if it works, haven't tested.
  13. in WINNT.SIF use this: [Unattended] Hibernation = No
  14. I'd like to remove the "Change Windows Firewall settings" in the Local Area Connection tray icon. (pic attachted) Does anyone know in which file this resides?
  15. What did the BSOD say? That might help to figure out whats wrong. If the computer automatically restarted after the BSOD, do this to make it stay on screen: Right-click My Computer -> Properties -> Goto Advanced tab -> Startup and Recovery: settings -> UNcheck "automatically restart".
  16. Thats a trojan, a friend of mine had the same thing, just have good antivirus run a scan. ZA SS can remove it.
  17. As far as I know, in Xp Home you can only login to the administrator account from safe-mode.

I'm reading up on the HIVEFIX thing now, looks interesting
  19. I'm actually making a batch file to remove stuff from my XPCD... Those CABs looke very usefull, I had forgot about sysoc.inf which obviously needs to be edited. But still there are numerous entries in the HIVE files about 'games' and some entries about the *.exe files. Are those safe to remove? I'm not very familiar with the HIVEs so if anyone cares to explain ho they work, please do so. And that minesweeper... yes, has to be the best malware killer there is Thanks for your help
  20. I'd like to know how to nLite the manual way, for example to remove the Games: I delete these files from /I386: games.in_ sol.ex_ sol.ch_ sol.hl_ winmine.ex_ winmine.ch_ winmine.hl_ mshearts.ex_ mshearts.ch_ mshearts.cn_ mshearts.hl_ freecell.ex_ freecell.ch_ freecell.hl_ spider.ex_ spider.ch_ spider.hl_ I then delete the corresponding entries in DOSNET.INF and TXTSETUP.SIF Ok, but this just deletes the files and tells setup not to copy them. What more do I need to remove to make everything about the Games disappear? There are numerous entries for these files and even more entries for "games" in the files HIVECLS.INF, HIVEDEF.INF, HIVESFT.INF, HIVESYS.INF and HIVEUSD.INF And what about removing services and other crap the manual way? Any help would be appreciated
  21. Get windows cd from rescue discs Hiyas, I recently bought a Packard Bell desktop computer with an OEM Windows Home, I burned the rescue discs from it (4 CD's). On the 4th disc I found a FILES.ARJ with the size of 425Mb, got it unpacked and it contained the I386 folder (427Mb) and all the subfolders and files like a 'real' Xp CD. I then took the SETUP.EXE, BOOTFONT.BIN and those WIN**** files from my laptops WindowsXp and put them in the same directory as the I386 folder and started up nLite which said "Make sure that the selected folder contains the proper installation files". So are those files specific for the laptops Windows or am I missing some other files from the I386 folder? I haven't tried it in VMWare yet. Does anyone have any experience in extracting a Windows Cd from rescue discs? Is it even legal to do it? Did I post this in the wrong forum/section? The reason I want to extract the Windows is because Packard Bell thinks I need all the other software that comes on the other 3 CD's which I don't want. And this computer is gonna be a 'TV-comp' someday so I would like to slim Windows it down a lot.
