>>71807757>>Enterprise 2019 LTSCThere is a same version in /sqt/ but the sizes are different (3.6g vs 4g)What's the difference between them?
Posting again: will a Windows 10 SSD boot when moved to a new CPU/Mobo?
>>71807840the sqt thread one is march refresh, this is the original release, according to a very quick hash search. So you should probably get the sqt one, but in the end it doesn't really matter
>>71807871It will get to the bootloader surely (nothing stopping that), but whether it will actually get to the login screen and not just BSOD is 50/50 and you can't really do anything against it.What you should really be aware is if you plan to clone it to a new drive, plug it in before and let windows install drivers before cloning it over.I fucked that one up when I was cloning from HDD to SSD.
>>71807871don't know about 10 since it's a total mess but my 8.1 install worked perfectly fine
windows 10 DPI fix: post a valid link, when I google it I get weird resultsthere are 2 simplewall programs I found, one is more plain the other is more slick and businessy, which one?
>>71807886I see, thanks
>>71807947you might not need this on recent win10, but here: http://windows10-dpi-fix.xpexplorer.com/this simplewall has a github so i assume this one: https://www.henrypp.org/product/simplewall
>>71807757I'm using a cracked copy of Windows 7 ultimate edition. Should I upgrade?Last time I bought a computer with a legitimate copy of Windows was Windows 98 in the last millennium
>>71808483Newer windowses have way more advanced security features, for me this is one of the main reasons to upgrade. Win 10 is also faster due to hybrid startup, and dark explorer is comfy af.The only possible reason for not upgrading is that it requires more work to remove botnet than previous versions, but there are programs now that take care of all that.However if you're talking about the upgrade as in the offered windows upgrade, don't, you can only get Pro with that, do a clean install of either Enterprise LTSC 2019 or Enterprise atleast.
>>71807947tinywall - https://tinywall.pados.hu/Shits on simplewall and is a lot lighter(???)

>>71807757Thanks for this friendly Windows thread /g/bros, will definitely read the whole thread throughout the day ^^
>>71809484Used it for years on muh windoze machines - never had an issue with either dhcp or openvpn (altho I usually only use openvpn on linux as commandline).It can be a bit resource hungry on lowmem devices but apart from that, having tried simplewall for a few months I'll never recommend it.

>>71807757>/fwt/ - Friendly Windows Thread
First thing in the morning, what do I see? A pile of shit staring at me. I close my eyes, I step away. No matter where I go, there’s no getting away. Take your poo to the loo. Take your poo to the loo. Take your poo to the loo. Take your poo to the loo.Poo, poo, poo, poo, poo, everywhere. Poo, poo, poo, poo, poo, next to you. Poo, poo, poo, poo, poo, where is that loo?I step out on the street. What do I smell? Shit that’s stinky to high hell. I hold my breath, I step away. But everywhere I go, there’s no getting away.Poo, poo, poo, poo, poo, everywhere. Poo, poo, poo, poo, poo, next to you. Poo, poo, poo, poo, poo, everywhere. Poo, poo, poo, poo, poo, where is that loo.Shit, not shit, this shit, that shit. Let’s see now. Let me check. Happy birthday. Happy birthday.Poo, poo, poo, poo, poo, everywhere. Poo, poo, poo, poo, poo, next to you. Poo, poo, poo, poo, poo, everywhere. Poo, poo, poo, poo, poo, where is that loo.
>>71809604It has been a while since I've used it (don't have much call to boot the win10 laptop) but I found the putting it in "Learning Mode" and then allowing applications/processes in the open ports list used to do the trick.Being able to backup config was a must-have for me.
>>71809653I'd rather not take the kind of hit that makes me want to switch out of windows 10 altogether.
>>71809586>calls me a nigger, doesn't bother to update linkshttps://www.fosshub.com/Halite.html
>>71807757>JPEGViewDoes anyone know how to change keyboard input for this software?I have universal shortcut key combos for my media players and photo viewer (old) to minimise to tray.
>>71809728>>71809739Why are linux users so obsessed with shit?
>>71809653Defender also detects the most false positives, not to mention that it doesn't even let you to disable the shitty web filter called SmartScreen, which is blocking my awesome russian torrent sites instead of real malware.I always recommend to remove Defender and SmartScreen with Optimize-Offline github script and install some 3rd party AV instead, ESET NOD32 is good recommendation, you can use it with TNod to get free licenses forever.
>>71810446I've been using the tnod thing, but forever? I've been getting licenses that expire in october or so. Ain't there a chance by then there won't be any more servers for it?
>4790k>z97-a>16GB DDR3This is my system spec, going to clone the SSD that has the windows 7 OS to a new system, I'm only changing the CPU, MOBO and RAM. Will it work or do I have to do some work arounds?>3900x>x470 motherboard>DDR4
>>71809586>jdownloader (Ad-Free) There is literally ads for file hosts in the toolbar.
>>71810446>>71810733>TNodwhat the fuck that still exists?I used that more than a decade ago last time
>>71811023If you let windows install drivers on the new system, then clone the old system over wouldn't that just overide the new drivers you installed?
>>71811116Yep, I found out about it like a month ago.
How do I remove excess stuff on a fresh windows install?Like it's unironically 15gb by default
>>71810733>>71811116Yeah, it still exists and works, there is new private server for licenses that you need to add: https://tnods1.blogspot.comWorks with newest versions of ESET NOD32 and ESET Internet Security. Just get TNod 1.6.7 Beta from official site and add that new server in TNod settings.
>>71810812well I'm thinking of cloning my drive with the OS and applications to another drive in the new system. Booting into safe mode on the new system, uninstall all intel chipset drivers, restart the computer, then installing the new AMD x470 drivers in bootloader using a USB
next iteration of this thread ADD THE LINKS IN A PASTEBIN OR SOMETHING THANKS IN ADVANCE
>>71811862If space is that much a premium, ie you need to host a bunch of VMs, use winXP or linux. Otherwise, put up with 15GB base windows installs.
>>71807757Where is:WINAMPPhotoshopHexchat (or any irc clients)I also remember using wincdemu, but I believe as of windows 10 the OS can natively mount .iso files.
>>71807757Some recommendationsPicture Viewer:- Honeyview - fastest one (cache works the best) + highest quality with Lanczos resampling (Bicubic/Bilinear options also available)- ImageGlass - I don't use it, but looks nice from screenshotsVideo Player:- MPC-HC - project was taken by clsid2 (creator of K-Lite Codec Pack and other useful stuff) and there is no need to install Codec Pack, as you won't be needing codecs for encoding and external decoders and splitters for other players which be bloating only your system registryMPC-BE - nice alternative to MPC-HC, actively developed with many old MPC-HC devsAntivirus:- Windows Defender has the lowest detection rate of all AVs, it's not nice to recommend it, when BitDefender, Comodo etc exists.Misc:X-Mouse Button Control - mouse macros
Question.Should I only have Antivirus or Antivirus + Firewall?I have Avira antivirus and comodo firewall comboDo I keep em both or ditch one of those?
any recommendation on defrag tool? Im using mydefrag for years but it hasn't been updated long time.
how do you manage your user accounts on fresh install?
>>71807757fuck you and fuck windows. GNU/LINUX ROCKS
>>71812310defragging is a scam
>>71812310Windows 10 default
>>71809397https://getmusicbee.com/ pretty sure it does
>>71812245just use stock windows defender or whatever the fuck its called this month
>windows 10 Enterprise 2019 LTSCCan I use this with the latest hardware (3700x and 5700XT)? Will my experience differ in gaming from win 10 pro? The way I understand it, LTSC is recommended here because it is the least annoying win 10
i can activate w7 with kms_vl_all?
>>71812493Ltsc is recommended by contrarian autists. If you are playing games you need Windows Pro, period. 1903 is required for the scheduler update for ryzen and drivers for the 5700
>>71812558I want none of that bloatware shit and only thing keeping me from going Linux is gaming. That said. Is windows 10 pro and then using win10debloater the best option for me? https://github.com/Sycnex/Windows10Debloater
>>71812627I use OOSU10 and find that effective. The only "bloat" is preinstalled store apps, one drive, and cortana. You can uninstall all the apps as soon as you start up and OOSU10 takes care of onedrive and cortana.
>>71812558>Ltsc is recommended by contrarian autists. If you are playing games you need Windows Pro, period. 1903 is required for the scheduler update for ryzen and drivers for the 5700If you weren't such a poorfag and bought i9 9900k instead of Shitzen, then you could be using LTSC 2019 right now, instead of shitty 1903.
>>71812672Enjoy no driver updates or HDR
>>71812697>Enjoy no driver updates or HDRI prefer to wait until November 2021 for LTSC 2022 than to deal with picrel crap.
>>71812697I still download graphic drivers updates from nvidia and intel in my machines with LTSC.
>>71809478please be friendly
>>71811862If games can be 100+gb, why wouldn't you allow your OS 15gb?
>>71812785>too lazy to spend 5 minutes uninstalling bloat>even though it fixes the problem forever.
>>71813373>even though it fixes the problem forever.Until the next update* FTFY
>>71807757I don't get why the old Windows Photo Viewer is not on this list, you can restore it with some registry editshttps://pastebin.com/KF6CyyTF
>>71813415Thats just objectively untrue. Especially since a part of that 5 minutes is setting up OOSU19 to disallow the store from auto downloading applications.
>>71810812>>71811294>>71812058sysprep /generalize /shutdown /oobe
>>71812517yes, the editions that can ne activated by KMS.You'd peobably want to use Enterprise
>>71812558I get that you dont like feature updates but why the fuck recommend Pro? Enterprise is superior.
>>71812697you can manually download and install newer drivers though
>>71812652>you can remove the userspace programs that limit my interaction by not remove the kernel based telemetry anon!>there now you're bloat free!! :D
>>71814283Are you seriously implying that ltsc is in any way more secure/private than regular windows?
>>71812517Use WES7 if you need W7U, otherwise POSReady 7
What version of .net do I need to use if I want my program to work in W7 without installing extra shit?
ltsb 2016 still hereis ltsc an easy switch? any issues currently? any programs that don't work? virtual studio works right?
>tfw now chocolateypilledanything I should know after I've converted a bulk of my shit overhow reliable are nvidia drivers over geforce experience?steam with its auto updater?I wish Chocolatey had nightlies of software available.
>>71816435Well, since its LTSB/LTSC we're talking about you need a clean reinstall, in case you didn't know that.Otherwise so far everything has worked for me, VS2017 included. Don't know of any deal breaking bugs either.
>>71816563*except one thingI had to use a registry key to disable the new energy center thing (performance options and shit) on my laptop, because it was kinda broken
>>71816435I upgraded from LTSB 2016 to LTSC 2019. No clean install needed.
>>71816667hm, weird, according to microsoft it can't be upgradedwell, i guess it's microsoft we're talking about...
I use a Hackintosh and I'm considering moving back to Windows 10 Lite.
>>71816694That same Microsoft that recommends not using LTSC on regular computers.
>>71816539chocolatey is ass, use scoop.
>>71816699Just download a LTSC 2019 iso and debloat it further using this.https://github.com/DrEmpiricism/Optimize-Offline
>>71816797checked it's package list just now and it's missing quite a bit of software that I get off chocolateywhy would I want scoop? I already have msys2 for any linux on pc needs.
>>71816823Have you checked all the buckets?
>>71816828just looked in scoop-extras, it has a handful more but still missing a fewI noticed it has mpv-git though, based on availability and staying maintained.
Is enabling SMB v1.0 really dangerous to my machine? I used to be able to set up SMB connection from my PC to share my media folder so I can access it via Android using Perfect Viewer or MXPlayer (I was using win7 back then). Now it's been some years since I'm using a windows, and I'm now trying win10 on my new PC. But I can't seem to success setting up the connection. After some reads I think it's caused by windows disabling samba v1.0 because of some exploits. My question is, is it safe to turn SMB v1.0 on if I'm just on my private network at home (consists of my router, a PC, a laptop and some android phones), and not some enterprise setup? Will someone be able to do nasty smb exploits to my computer over the internet?
>>71817678Well, SMB1 was used for DoublePulsar (exploit leaked from NSA, used for WannaCry), so its not without a reason its disabled.Anyways, be sure to have your system updated and it should be fine.
it's some months that i'm dual booting win 10 with manjaro and i only use manjaro even for gaming but there are some bugs with proton and some games i wanna play just does not workso i'm considering installing win 10 for gaming and using a linux distro in a virtual machine for my desktop needs, is this practical?
>>71818150Yes. You can even run linux inside Windows 10 through WSL(look it up).
>>71817771Not him but is SMB3 safe?I'm a Lintard trying to setup active directory on SMB for some windows 7 users.Why can't windows be more neutral with their authorization and sharing.
>>71818191just the terminal or a full de?
>>71818221Yes it is a lot better, even v2 fixed a lot of fundamental design flaws like the quite risky intentional remote code execution in the protocol.Also, v1 is not inherently insecure either (no mathematically broken crypto and the like), it is just designed really badly.
>>71807757I'd recommend AquaSnap.
hello anonsdoes anyone know how to disable software protection platform service "Sppsvc.exe" from taking 30% of CPU for nothing?I just uninstalled KMSpico and installed the KMS in this thread for win10.thanks for help
>>71818828that... shouldnt happenit shouldnt even run after activationhave you tried restarting?
>>71819024yes, my pc crashed "personalized settings not responding", right now I am backing up shit after solving it and doing sfc /scannowit is still working, but I assume currently it may be attributed due to scannow, gonna finish it and see if it is still continuing consuming cpu.

>>71819634Never having to fuck with activation and making new Windows Defender exclusions every time Microsoft updates their detection and kills KMS.
>>71819685KMS_VL_ALL never breaksare you autistic?
>>71819685>Never having to fuck with activation and making new Windows Defender exclusions every time Microsoft updates their detection and kills KMS.That doesn't happen with KMS_VL_ALL - it automatically adds the .dll file to Defender's exclusions, it only happened with crappy tools like KMSPico and only in 2015 or so, also, some of us remove Defender crap from the .iso and use better third party AV instead.
>>71819819>third party AVbloat
>>71818406>>71818611>or a full de?Ohh! That's actually interesting!Not the Anon who made the question, but can you, for example, replace the shitty Windows Explorer with something like LXDE or KDE for example?

>>71813443>OOSU19That thing still exists? New to win10 and haven't read up anything on it in years
>POSReady 7Can someone explain this to me? I remember using the POS hack for XP. Is this basically the same thing, or a whole different "edition" of 7? Will I need to reinstall 7 to use it?
>>71821331XP hack was also a different version called POSReady 2009, the updates just happened to be mostly compatible with XP (althought you had to manually patch like 3 updates) and receiving them was a simple registry edit. It is not know yet how compatible and easily switchable the POSReady 7 updates will be on Windows 7, so you might be better off by simply using the actual version instead of hoping for compatibility.
>>71819819>better third party AVLike what?
>>71819287Deezloadr for mainstream music, nyaa/youtube for weeb music.
>>71821548you should try getting an invite for AnimeBytes, lots of weeb music there.
>>71821563My internet is metered, can't afford to be in private tracker.
>>71821301Oosu10 i meant and yeah its great
>>7180787121 hours later im back. New CPU and everything booted perfectly fine. I just have problems with activation now, since I was supposed to tie my acrivation to my account BEFORE the hardware change lmao
>>71821773You can just make a new digital license with HWIDgen anyways.Although if you're at it anyways, maybe you should use KMS_VL_ALL instead since it's less botnet.
>>71819819>better>third partyThat's like>military intelligence>beautiful feminist>etc
>>71818550Thanks for the non meme answers.
I can't make this shit go away, what do I need to do in order to change EVAL to normal?, downloaded and ran:en_windows_10_enterprise_ltsc_2019_x64_dvd_74865958
>>71822102You probably didn't download that, but an EVAL version.EVAL cannot be activated, you need to reinstall.
>>71807757it's possible to anyone post the ccmaker without login blyat page
>>71822119Installed the iso from OP, where can I get the best version?, thanks in advance
>>71821797Thanks, just used KMS_vl_all
>>71822145you can use the one in OP, you just used it wrong.You download the .iso and the .exe from the mega, place them in the same folder, then run the .exe, which should generate the correct .isoAnyways, /sqt/ has a march updated iso
>>71822284to explain, SFVs are essentially diff-s, but for ISOsthis way it is a lot easier to distribute windows ISOs, since downloading the majority of the data (the 3.6 GB eval ISO) eats microsoft bandwidth, and the only the SVFs need to be hosted on mega / other file hosting sites.
>>71822284>>71822341all right, now I'm on the right path, thank you very much

hey guyswhat is best programming language for use in windows applicationsC#or C++?
>>71824184depends for what purpose.For anything performance critical you'd want C++. For something where performance is less of a concertn and UI / networking more is, C# might be an easier choice.

Guys, regarding KMS_VL_ALL. Which files does the script for manual activation require? I want to send this thing to someone who's not tech savvy but wants a quick way of reactivating an office license that was already converted and activated but somehow expired. I'm afraid windows might block his shit and I want to make this as painless as possible (hell I might have to explain how to run a fucking program as administrator). I heard that you can still use the activator manually if windows blocks those files and running something once every now and then shouldn't be an issue.
>>71828562manual activate just installs, activates, uninstalls, so all of them
>>71828591Ah fuck. I guess I'll have to write out how to exclude those files on windows defender.
>>71819454any download links? techbench doesnt provide any version except home and pro(normal)
>>71828636>Ah fuck. I guess I'll have to write out how to exclude those files on windows defender.KMS_VL_ALL automatically adds itself to the exclusions of Windows Defender, you don't need to add it manually,
>>71807757Asking cause the new ryzen are out, will I still be able to run win 7 if I use a drive that already has win 7 on it? I am aware of the usb 3 thing and I heard its already been patched so there's no way to install win 7 with a ryzen cpu. And if I manage to run it will it be worse than if I had win 10 ltsc? I'm still trying to avoid win 10 at all costs because I have it on my laptop and I really dislike everything about it, even the menu and how the "apps" like photos open up, and how some software is blurry.

Hello anons,So I reinstalled my windows, I do have a stupid question.How do I use OptimizeOffline? What should be the code for the start.cmd?
>>71831660Optimize-Offline only works on .iso images, you can't use it to modify already installed system - it's supposed to rebuild a new, debloated .iso image for you with lots of registry and services tweaks.
>>71831660optimize offline only works on ISOs or WIM files. You have to use the script to create a new windows ISO with the parameters you want (check the additional folder just in case, there's a script that won't make you happy if you don't want to disable certain services) and then use that ISO to install windows.
>>71831699what do you suggest to debloat my installed LSTC windows?
>>71831729>what do you suggest to debloat my installed LSTC windows?To remove Windows Defender use RemoveDefender_v4.0: https://s.put.re/Qr8L6dvH.0.rarTo disable Telemetry use WPD:https://wpd.app/get/latest.zipTo disable UAC + other annoyances and to apply additional useful tweaks use Winaero Tweaker:https://winaero.com/download.php?view.1796To disable Telemetry
>>71828571Anything faster? This takes FOREVERR.In comparison, "BeyondCompare" literally loads the folders and compares in less than 10 seconds. And these are folders with over 400gb of files.
>>71832051probably because it doesn't actually compare it, just some heuristics (size / date / you-name-it), since obviously it can't read at 40 GB/sWinMerge on the other hand only considers the data, nothing else, since its like diff but for windows with gui and stuff

So to anyone who uses NOD32 to replace defenderShould I just disable SSL/TLS protocol filtering or just disable all protocol filtering altogether? How unreliable is this with its internet protection features?
is there a way to add service and maintenance for older printers?hp is shit, and their last drivers are for windows xp. besides, bloat as fuck, I just want the alingment and cleaning submenus. Their newest apps can't find my printer, even over usb -- which is hidden under ethernet connections.
>>71833515this is exactly what I need. expect that in that tool, those are just freaking images. It's like tehir teasing stingy old fags with perfectly functional old printers.
>>71833354>Should I just disable SSL/TLS protocol filtering or just disable all protocol filtering altogether? How unreliable is this with its internet protection features?I've removed Defender from LTSC 2019 .iso image using Optimize-Offline github script, and i've installed newest ESET NOD32 with TNod, but i don't disable the SSL/TLS filtering in NOD32, why would you want to disable it?
>>71833633have you tried clicking update in device manager?
>>71833690yeah, made sure to get the newest driver from the ms catalog, using the correct model name (system->printers and scanners ->add a device>older model yadayada). It's exactly the same as the genric one, that auto installs. And it's already been updated (reinstalled) twice. i'm sure older had the servicing menus somewhere in printer preferences. They removed it along the way. haven't used this printer in some time, but my new epson was utter shit, a piece of shit like you would never believe (seriously, that crap shouldn't be legal allowed to be sold) and threw it away and decided to get back to this one. This is the latest driver for this printer, i'm absolutely certain of that.
What are the main differences between LTSC/B and Pro, aside from the lack of MS Store
>>71833130>telemetry of courseI didn't even know that MS did that in Office.I can't think of any genuine developer benefit for that, only evil motivations.
>>71833687I can't trust ESET that much honestly
>>71834987As a starter, all the differences between Pro and Enterprise, check Wikipedia for a list.Difference between Enterprise and Enterprise LTSC is a little bit shorter, for example it misses all UWP apps except very important ones like Settings, sometimes being replaced by win32 ones, like it's with the calculator, sometimes not like with Photos. Also, no feature updates ever, and 10 years of security and bug fixes.
>>71828323You mean as a circumvention of that network copy bug that Vista SP1 fixed?You're 12 years late, anon.
>>71833235NT 3.51 would like to have a word with you.
>>71837002okay okay, i meant every consumer version.also if we're at old NT versions, i still think that moving GUI to kernel was one of the biggest mistakes modern Microsoft made with Windows
>>71807757Why is font rendering in Word so fucking complete shit? I mean, what the fuck were they thinking?Look at this fucking shit.Left is Word, right is goddamn WordPad.Why is it so much better in WordPad, a free shitty software that's bundled with Windows?It pisses me off so much.

Someone tell me why I should use Chocolately or Scoop instead of just installing programs manually/traditionally.
>>71836155Is the updated Ryzen-aware scheduler considered a feature update?
>>71837065Windows 3.1 would like to have a word with you, then.And they moved (most of) it back with Vista, funnily enough (they kinda fucked themselves: most of what was left in win32k.sys is for - yeah, it always is - backcompat).
>>71837073because it renders how it would print.the right one has ClearType, meant for LCD monitors, the left one doesn't.
>>71837090It's for the lazy/stupid freetard, completely used to having a appsto^H^H^H^H^H^Hpackage manager holding their hand every step of the way. If you have any ability whatsoever to locate, download, install, or manage software yourself, they're kinda pointless.
>>71837118But why?I know it's pretty autistic, but I write a lot and I find it very hard to use Word for that reason, even though I'm fucking paying for it.
>>71837111Yes, it's part of the 1903 update>>71837114Win3.1 is still from the old hack-together Microsoft, that's why i explicitly noted modern Microsoft.and win32k has been an exploit and BSOD factory ever since
is fman actually useful or practical?
>>71837088.NET is pretty nice for GUI applications, if you're a sensible person and target the default installed version. Much better than the hack that Win32 GUI is.
>>71837154>even accidentally implying 95 wasnt
>>71837206I didn't imply that, everything before NT is
>>71837146Okay, that's what I was thinking. I can handle my own updating so I guess these package managers aren't for me.
>>71837153i have absolutely no idea why they did that, but if i had to guess it would be that they didn't care to write two different rendering modes, and boomers don't notice it anyways
>>71837214It's OK, anon. Windows history and architecture is unironically a hard subject. A bigger accident that win32k, IMO.
>>71837247Meh, I'm just annoyed by the fact that they made such a nice kernel better than pretty much all others, with strict security principles and everything, then shat in the middle of it with win32k leaking kernel addresses left and right, providing countless read/write primitives, etc..
>>71837314NT 3.x is far more pure, yes. But people will chase the performance God (and 3.x WAS horribly non-performant for graphics), and now we're stuck with it for backcompat reasons.To be completely fair though, there's a middling chance that Windows 7 would have been the first consumer NT if MS hadn't done it, with all the gaymurs screeching how Me+4 is so much better.
>>71837384What a horrible timeline that woulda been
>>71807757Hey /fwt/Ive just installed W7.Should I update the BIOS first? Or install all the motherboard drivers?
Should add Win 10 Education to the infographic since LTSC doesn't have the Ryzen scheduler fix or support for Zen 2 (even just as a suggestion in the description).Also this script works very well - https://community.spiceworks.com/scripts/show/4378-windows-10-decrapifier-18xx-19xx
>>71838604dont install drivers manually, use device manager and click update
>>71838618Isn't enterprise better than education?
>>71838618What's the difference between this script and optimize-offline?
>>71838665Same shit different defaults
>>71837088>How to spot pajeetcode in just four bytes.It's not java.
>>71838972>What's the difference between this script and optimize-offline?Optimize-Offline is for optimizing .iso images, hence the word OFFLINE, while that spiceworks thing is for already installed systems (LIVE SYSTEMS), also, Optimize-Offline removes apps way deeper, because you can only do that offline - best to do it that way.
>>71840304It's worth noting that Optimize-Offline is being updated quite frequently, so always check the github page to make sure you have the newest version.https://github.com/DrEmpiricism/Optimize-OfflineAlso, after downloading the whole script, you can (and should) edit the Optimize-Offline.ps1 with Notepad++, search for the: #region Registry Optimizations. inside it, and there you can add your own registry tweaks (or remove some of the existing ones you don't like), here is my own must-have tweak that i add to Optimize-Offline:https://pastebin.com/raw/FTCRe2Q2
>>71840377I just noticed he removed a script (Set-Privacy) that was included that I didn't add just in case related to privacy. Did he merge it or just outright took it out due to criticism?I'm looking to build LTSC image that has no store (like default) no defender (though I have yet to find a good antivirus), maybe a system app or two removed that are safe to disable, windows updates and other things still working and not breaking, something middle ground in terms of privacy. A few days ago I read this thing:https://github.com/DrEmpiricism/Optimize-Offline/issues/82And I thought "well shit, I'm a brainlet and don't know what half of that might actually break". Like outright bluetooth pairing is something I don't want to lose.
>>71840472Yeah, those services were probably optimized for desktop PCs without bluetooth and wifi, therefore these services were included by default in that Set-Privacy.ps1, i don't know why he has removed those minor scripts, maybe he will implement services optimization in a safer way.
>>71840514I guess I'll wait for that. Script is still there to edit but I'm not good at this thing.
What's the best Winblows version for a dual booth pc that it's only use will be playing counter strike global offensive and running software I cant run on Linux?
>>71807757>windows defender provides the best protection according to testssource on that?
So does the POS trick for XP still work? I realize even that has lost support but can I still get the updates until last April?
>>71838665I've found that Education is easier and quicker for upgrading to newer builds for people who want that, but without forcing it similar to Enterprise. Otherwise basically identical.
Should add Winaero Tweaker somewhere. First thing I install.
>>71827815Yea I already found that link like yesterday. But ty, I appreciate that you helped anon !!!

>>71844115>Defender: 24 false positives>Kaspersky: 0 false positives
How do I use the SVF patches to convert EVAL to normal for Windows 7 POSReady ?
>>71844362Defender: free and integrated into the OS, installed by defaultKaspersky: slow, paid, runs its set of stuff, have to install itNot that bad of a trade desu. You can also just click ignore on false positives if you encounter them
>>71844469>You can also just click ignore on false positives if you encounter themNot really, Defender has removed a lot of MY OWN CRACKS so many times without my permission, while Kaspersky has never ever removed them, the first thing i do is fully removing Defender from the offline .wim image, only then i install Windows, i just can't stand this fucking joke of an AV, it is literally the second McAfee, same tier.
>>71844521Stop pirating and actually pay for software you use daily.
>>71844521adding to ignore list has worked for me on other pcs and my vms, although I also just entirely disabled Defender on main, since it also removed my tools and cracks (like the activator part of KMS_VL_ALL which i developed. funny because before release it didn't care at all). So far I had problems with almost all AVs. I guess it's because AVs tend to dislike software using malware techniques regardless if they are malicious or not
>>71844602>Stop pirating and actually pay for software you use daily.No, i have never paid for any software in my entire life and i never will, i pirate literally everything since Windows 2000 and Windows XP times.Just stop using shitty AVs that remove cracks.
>>71813415updates don't re add shit to the start menu, hurr
>>71807757i want the most optimized and compatible Windows build there is, what should I get?and how would I go about removing bloat and stuff i want to be private :<
>>71844643BTW: Do you know any skilled people capable of cracking NTLite? I have asked around in the warez scene, but no one that i know was able to crack it.My friend from Poland has managed to crack the v18.104.22.16890 beta build, but after that no news from him - NTLite is very hard to crack because it's packed with Obsidium x64 - it's almost on the Denuvo level in terms of a challenge.The v22.214.171.12446 beta build is the newest version currently.
Defender does not only catch false positives way too often, it's also a sluggish piece of trash. It's worth installing a 3rd party AV that doesn't kidnap resources on lower powered devices. You'd be surprised at how many non-tech savvy people still use older laptops and go back to Windows 7 just because of it. Heck not even older shit, just try it on those surface tablets.
>>71844853I am well aware of this - i have been telling this to everyone since 2016, but some idiots prefer to think that Defender is a GODSEND and Microsoft is a Jesus, because they read it on reddit's /r/Windows10/
>>71844818ugh fuck virtualizers.I only know a guy who can do devirtualization, but only ever did VMProtect and works against anticheats, not DRM, so I doubt he'd be interested
>>71844469Defender is slow not Kasperskyhttps://www.av-comparatives.org/tests/performance-test-april-2019/
>>71844878I use nod32, it's not perfect and I would probably look for some other alternative but at least I haven't had either problems with malware or the system going slow. I refuse to pay for shit to be honest.
>>71844906>I use nod32, it's not perfect and I would probably look for some other alternative but at least I haven't had either problems with malware or the system going slow. I refuse to pay for shit to be honest.As you should, NOD32 is based and 100x better than the Defender crap, it's also pretty lightweight. I use Kaspersky right now, but i have been using ESET NOD32 for many years and it has never failed me.

>>71844933Yeah, I don't even remember the last issue I had with it to be honest. What made you switch?
>>71845038>Yeah, I don't even remember the last issue I had with it to be honest. What made you switch?I just received 2-year Kaspersky license for free so im using it now, but when it'll expire i'll probably switch back to ESET.

>>71807757what is POSReady 7?
>>71848242A Windows 7 based OS for Point-of-Sale terminals. Essentially Windows 7 Enterprise with extended support and a few useless (to us) features like USB filtering

>>71848366It's not much different from normal Win7 Enterprise, except that it's supported for almost a year more.
>>71848394and that support only comes in windows updates right? I have just been using simplix for updates, is there any other support?thanks for answering my question though, never heard of it before
>>71848432well, third parties choose on their own what they want to support, so obviously it's just windows updates
>>71807757any decent program out there for updating drivers?
>>71849150Device Manager got progressively better in the last ~10 years. Just click "Update driver" on the devices one by one and it usually turns out just fine, with only drivers installed and no device manufacturer / OEM bloat. If something still doesn't work just search the driver from the manufacturer, driver updaters are usually shitty.
