I have tweaked these services in my Windows 7 and never had any problems with it. I am sure you can also use it in Windows 10 without getting problems,
but be sure to test it. I will do it too once I finish slimming my Windows 10...

Here is the list:

using Windwos since V2.0, this version 10 is (finally!) programmed to have services in stopped state and start'em when needed (triggered start). Using PC for web/audio/video/games, I tweaked the services, disabled some, but most are manual and stopped. Try to NOT disable...
- If a service needs to be started (e.g. DeviceSetupManager because you inserted a USB), it can be started !
- If something fails, I reboot and stop my startup script to verify if the problem is with services

My config is extreme, I am using StartIsBack (hinders SearchUI.exe/ShellExperienceHost.exe) and renamed System files to finally have Tile/TimeBroker shut up.

And are all these "safe" ? I am looking for a win10 build with as many things removed......that is working 90% or better, then i figure I can enable things I want but know that the base is working.


Question,  is there a way to modify the SFC /scannow program inside windows? So after you have a good copy of Win10 that works, I want to be able to run SFC /scannow and it fix issues with windows going forward. But now regardless of what I do, if i take anything out of windows Sfc /scannow comes up with an errors.  Hope you understand what I am asking......?

i would say yes they work for me so they should be safe.
but you could use the vipers preset which just disables etc services. just be sure to not disable windows firewall because that breaks the start menu at the moment

KRX , question............lets say i have a good full working copy of windows 10 installed  untouched by winreducer, with all my drivers and programs i want.  Is  there a way to extract / copy all those drivers and programs from my working copy of windows....... into a wim or install file that I can incorporate into my ISO that I make with WinReducer10?

I tried using [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] because it has a backup program built into it, that backs up all your drivers. So i was trying to find a way to make a WIM or installer out of it......but the files are .BCB? And I cant figure out how to convert them so they can be used with Winreducer10. sigh........

See my issue is not so much installing windows, its the time that it takes to install ALL the dam drivers and ALL the programs I use.  It takes me 5-6 hours min to install windows and then all my drivers and then all my software. THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY.  /sigh ..........so frustrated.

hey,

you could use this software:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

just selct the driver you want to save (click always on + and select also the inf etc files)

that should save your drivers which you could integrate into your iso with winreducer.

im not sure if that works with nvidia, but for smal drivers like usb 3.0 etc it worked always for me

says " unable to connect"  I think I have that blocked in my " hosts" file.  Do you have another link? Sourceforge is known for a lot of virus ridden software.

Hello,

Have you tried by downloading drivers directly from your hardware manufacturer(s) and extract the files directly from official drivers ?

You have 2 choices :
- use OOBE : to launch all drivers installation executable during installation (maybe some of them have silent switch to install them without users interaction) ... this is the easiest way to start Smile
- extract by yourself your your all *.inf and associated files for your drivers and integrate them directly in your ISO : this is a little more difficult than the OOBE method, but not so hard.

Let's admit that you want integrate Intel HD Graphics drivers for windows 10 x64 :

1 - Go to the download page in Intel website, for example this page :https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25188/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-10-15-33-?product=81499 .... and download the *.exe file for OOBE (or the zip file for inf drivers)

2 - With OOBE : just use the add files button in the EX-100 "Integrate - OOBE" tab to add the exe file you downloaded ... that's it Wink if you want to add more software or drivers with exe or msi extension, repeat exactly the same procedure

3 - For drivers extraction : use 7zip (or winzip) to extraction the zip file you downloaded. then copy all folders which contain an inf .... for instance, "Graphics" and "DisplayAudio" to a folder named "Intel HD Graphics" in  "...\WORK\INTEGRATE\DRIVERS\x64\Install" ... then mount your Windows 10 ISO ... go to the "Integrate" tab in EX-100 and choose the folder "...\WORK\INTEGRATE\DRIVERS\x64\Install" for "integrate drivers (install)" options. So your drivers will be automatically integrated in your ISO

Of course for your 30+ drivers, you will have to take time, or you may try to select all drivers you absolutely need and keep all other for an installation when you will use them Wink
