Hi all! I'm dealing with operating system options and I need to clear up a few components, most of which marked in red. First, nLite suggests to remove Command-Line Tools because of possible worm and viruses but someone claims that these tools could be very useful sometimes. Personally, I've never used such tools. Have you ever used those tools? Do you think they could be really useful? Second, by removing File System Encryption I should be still able to install another tool like TrueCrypt. Is there an up-to-date addon for TrueCrypt? Or would you suggest a better encryption tool? Third, many remove Help and Support but I would like to remove Help Engine too (specifically needed for Help and Support). Will I encounter possible issues? Fourth, many remove Out of Box Experience and I would like to do the same. I have XP Pro and Home with activation codes (underneath the laptops). If I insert them in the specific nLite section, will I still need to activate Windows? Follows the whole list all of options: .Net Framework 16-bit Support Administrative Templates Administrator VB Scripts Application compatibility patch Auditing Compatibility Patch Auditing Resource Dlls Blaster/Nachi Removal Tool Certificate Management Color Schemes Command-Line Tools Desktop Cleanup Wizard Disk and Profile Quota Disk Cleanup Document Templates Dr. Watson Extensible Storage Engine (Esent97) Extra Fonts FAT to NTFS Converter File and Settings Wizard File System Encryption File System Filter Manager Format Drive Support Group policy Management Console Help and Support Help Engine IExpress WIzard Input Method Editor Internet Explorer Core Jet Database Engine Local Security Settings Logon Notifications Manual Install and Upgrade MDAC MS Agent MS XML 2.0 Out of Box Experience (OOBE) Private character Editor Remote Installation Services (RIS) Search Assistant Security Center Service Pack Messages Shell Media Handler Symbolic Debugger (NTSD) Tour User Account Pictures Visual Basic 5 Runtime Visual Basic 6 Runtimes Visual Basic Scripting Support Web View Zip Folders This is the list of the components I would like to remove: Blaster/Nachi removal tool, Command-Line Tools, Desktop Cleanup Wizard, Disk Cleanup, DR Watson, File and Settings Wizard, File System Encryption, Help and Support, Help Engine, Manual Install and Upgrade, MS Agent, Out of Box Experience (OOBE), Private Character Editor, Remote Installation Services (RIS), Search Assistant, Security Center, Shell Media Handler, Symbolic Debugger (NTSD), Tour, Web View. I'd really appreciate any suggestion regarding possible components to include in my list (and remove from XP) or even to take out (because I might encounter future issues).
