  2. Last I used it on Win 7 it was still working. Post a link to file you are using Also look at this
  3. Right click desktop, Personalize, Colors, choose color and set button right below "Show Color on Start, taskbar, Action Center"
  4. Interesting I still let updates come through and just tracking like store weather and defender Update came through yesterday 3081448 and Store started working again but I would still need to plugin my account if I want to add something.
  5. Edit first post. .NET 3.5 no longer needed. Legolash2o updated install_wim_tweak_NET4.6.exe
  6. Done. Check the first page. The only thing I did was to download the source, change .NET version in project properties and build Fantastic, thank you so much! Thank you sir. I downloaded code myself and was looking at fixing but too many other things. Especially removing Cortana +1. No more 3.5 except for a few other programs I have. Is that the latest source also?
  7. If you trying out that W10 Privacy this is huge Translated with google
  8. Yes I have a lot of those 10001 but I was rebooting testing a lot. I would guess cause it wasn't uninstalled by a MS method. Can't find it anywhere in registry
  9. Its a start. Getting rid of all them phone apps makes this less chatty. I flipped so many switches Store will load but when going to an app page it closes window which is fine by me. I don't need any of their stuff wants to share so many permissions like an android phone. I imagine its the don't share my ID which is most important to me. May fire up Powershell and heave ho the Store This is right now but mostly browsing with Fox
  10. You may be right. I haven't gone back since they released
  11. Windows components then Data. I don't see that setting ether in any I have been messing with.
  12. There are already many applications will also do this except none right now uninstall Cortana except wimtweak. I like W10 Privacy because it will uninstall the Metro Apps from User and System. Has many tweaks to disable Privacy things W10 Privacy Download To determine the system apps psexec.exe from Microsoft is needed. Download Extract and copy psexec.exe to W10 Privacy folder. Right click W10Privacy.exe and run as Administrator But To truly uninstall them you use Dism. DISM /Online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:**PACKAGENAME** Open Administrator command prompt DISM /Online /Get-ProvisionedAppxPackages >> Get-ProvisionedAppxPackages.txtTimeout 5DISM /Online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.XboxApp_2015.617.130.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbweDISM /Online /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.3DBuilder_2015.624.2254.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbweDISM /Online /Get-ProvisionedAppxPackages >> Get-ProvisionedAppxPackagesAfter.txt
  13. Edit: I don't want or need Cortana. They should give us option of uninstalling somewhere. I also don't want the Search2 tracking my stuff Search will still work in Explorer and Ctrl F will still work in documents Trojan being detected by MBAM on this link. Whether it is or not I can't point to that link anymore. NoelC has a Windows10ReTweaker script if you want to remove Cortana and Store with all useless APPS I still have it if someone wants it I can post to Mediafire. MSG me you have to download a few programs and add to folder right now. Still working far as this edit 9/2/2018
  14. I have uninstalled Cortana finally. I'll have to write up what I done perhaps another post. Going to image back and see if it works again. I know this may get put back in later but then we will have to figure out what to do then.
  15. I have tried uninstalling with install_wim_tweak. I even disconnected router and fresh install to see if it was an update keeping me from doing it. If you talking about removing packages from .wim I haven't done that yet. I'm still using what I downloaded day 1 release
  16. After the 7 fresh installs to my SSD trying to uninstall Cortana this weekend I found a different way to disable Cortana by editing SearchUI.exe and taking ownership. Take ownership of the Witch and End her task No telling how long this will last but its a start. After doing all that you must rename SearchUI.exe to something like SearchUI.exe.old then End task on Cortana in Task manager and she don't come back
  17. Split your drive in 2 if its big and image to second partition. I understand might not have an extra there as I used to be there But a large USB stick is all thats needed
  18. What does it matter ??????????? I work for a very large corporation. They told us about a couple month's ago our healthcare provider was hacked and millions of records were stolen. I am more concerned with something like that than what this Doze does. No shiese Crap my android phone(not rooted) I have Spyaware Privacy and it keeps telling me my phone is sending packets to Ireland from where I live in US. WTH. Its the Google crap mostly. Why I won't use Chrome but I bet a bunch do. But Google tracks ya just so they can stick ads in front of ya Yep I will continue using 10 to try and fight the mess. No Metro apps on this thing now, liked their weather live tile but maps sucked. Cortana still there but disabled and not taking any information "RestrictImplicitInkCollection"=dword:00000001. Got Cortana to uninstall a couple times from stuff at MDL but after imaging back and trying different things it won't uninstall. Still sorting that out Using several apps like O&O and W10 Privacy to uninstall, block delete whatever. Beats sticking thumb in mouth and one in rectum and switching every 10 seconds and hollering I see Noel is trying firewall approach but I am just trying different things
  19. Thats why you need a recovery plan. System image like Macrium Reflect (FREE). I create boot cd/dvd and image offline to a separate drive, less trouble of errors that way
  20. Main thing I wanted is switch wallpaper which I can modify by just compare to deviant art side by side. I just haven't had time to work on this one till I solve my disk imaging issue since moving to 10. Looks like macrium reflect is doing better job than my long time Acronis TIH
  21. I uninstalled Cortana by removing the packages from the .wim file with Win Toolkit. am having trouble with my imaging using AcronisTrueImage2015_6613 When I restore image things don't work. If I do a fresh install i can disable it using install_wim_tweak.exe /o /c Microsoft-Windows-Cortana-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-US~10.0.10240.16384 /r install_wim_tweak.exe /o /c Microsoft-Windows-Cortana-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.10240.16384 /r install_wim_tweak.exe /o /c Microsoft-Windows-Cortana-PAL-Desktop-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~10.0.10240.16384 /r
  22. Man I'm having troubles right now with that. I restore an Acronis image 2015 (6613) and things are not working correctly. So I was trying to make mine into GPT but it failed. Downloading Macrium reflect(Free) see if it images correctly Convert GPT Disk to MBR Disk
  23. Show me what exactly have you done for this community except criticize (|)
  24. Thats OK long as the other realm is building apps to (kill IT) and they will keep on doing that. That is why I was not worried about this Windows 10. I knew that there would be development to try to abate, destroy, whatever and they will keep on keeping on. They are driven by a passion I once had when I started out here at msfn. Try and remove or modify things was thrown into my windows I didn't like with a whole lot of Unattended testing. Like the funky default background wallpaper on 7 when installing We now have a lot of apps that are disabling things and I'm experimenting with a few. O&O ShutUp10 same as you would go to Settings, Privacy and disable everyone of those things. You get some of it by not choosing Express during Setup and turning off. This is just easy way to set them. W10 Privacy Also the download has English translation now. Was just German W10 Privacy download No more powershell to uninstall them Metro Apps, this does it Only thing I want now is how to uninstall Cortana. Did it once but can't get it to do again. install_wim_tweak.exe say it doing it but it still there.
