Do you have any idea how brutally this topic has beaten and maimed to death in the last 5 years? Do yourself a favor and search. There's got to be dozens of topics on this forum alone...

I stripped everything out so yeah networking is prolly gone... (Will test tonight though) It was just an example of what nLite can do.

well sure yo ucan strip everything down to its bare minimum but whats the point of stripping everything down when you can have certain features like networking, file browsing, printer support, and other features.

is there a list of stuff thats okay to delete and not okay to delete? i see a description in NLite but those descriptions aren't enough. it explain what it does but some doesn't explain what its being used for.

If you are unsure what it is used for, do not remove it. Granted that there is a lot of legacy functionality in Windows that is replaced by 3rd party utilities, but people who try to go the extra mile usually always come back with something not working properly and wonder if there is a way to fix it without redoing the entire process. The answer is no. You can remove unneeded languages, keyboard layouts, drivers and multimedia components and reduce your ISO a good 60-70%. That's all I do nowadays. I don't remove any Services. I just disable them and if I receive any errors in my Event Log Viewer, I re-enable some.

The true benefit to performance is making sure you have good hardware, a clean system (CCleaner), a defragmented HDD and lightweight software that doesn't take up enormous amounts of resources (Norton for example).

I guess you mean:

Don't you? :blink:

Those are under Accessories. You can remove all drivers that you either have no use for or ones for which you'll be integrating your own.
