    Anyone tried this Open Source app?

    Windows 10 Lite (Better Privacy) - Windows 10 Setup Helper for gamers, power users and administrators.


    • Removes Windows and System Apps (Cortana, MS Edge...)
    • Integrated privacy and **** script
    • Integrated Black Viper's service configuration
    • Disable unnecessary scheduled tasks due to privacy and undisturbed workflow
    • Privacy optimizations
    • Remove unnecessary file types and file associations (for security reasons)
    • Windows Defender AdWare Killer
    Here are the steps:
    1. Put this folder with files on your Windows 10 Setup USB/Disc.
    2. Do a clean installation of Windows 10 and wait until the Windows Setup ask you for input but enter nothing for now!!!
    3. Now press Shift+F10 on your keyboard. A command prompt should open. If you can't find your usb drive letter, type the following command wmic logicaldisk get deviceid, volumename, description Switch to your Windows 10 Setup USB/Disc and change to this folder. Sample: cd /D E:\Win10Lite
    4. Run file rmApps.cmd and answer the questions for your needs.
    5. Close the command prompt and finish Windows 10 Setup. First time your PC will reset and starts the Windows Setup ask you again for your preferences, do your input as before.

    Sort of; inside the from Sourceforge page of the project is a bunch of .inf files, I guess required to slipstream Windows 10.

    i dont recommend such afterward tweaking. if you have time to waste try it on clean windows, NOT on a functional system, it may crash or react randomly.

    for a correct number - some apps can not be removed, no way - fifteen at all in c:\Windows\SystemApps

    privacy optimisations -> O&O shutup - but that has also disadvatages shown in red letters in some options

    WD vs Adware
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\MpEngine]
    but be aware that WD will kick some downloads immediatly because it contains adware or adware downloader

    black viper services, better to screw manually - or never
    at first sight the service list in this tweaker looks not bad, anyhow not used services and the default services dont eat cpu on current systems - older systems are idd affected but those should not run windows 10.

    a bit off, my win10lite is called enterprise ltsb - it has most of these tweaks ;)
