Remove Windows LTSB N Junk.

on Wed 9 Dec 2015 - 2:20
Add Removal of Junk/Spy Crap Still on LTSB N
I know WinReducer has "remove modern crap"  but these still are hiding on windows after an install
 
Option to totally remove:
This Whore Cortana and Search2 "Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy" = the offline search with some left over cortana crap.
Maps and Bing maps "Microsoft-OneCore-Maps"  crapware still hiding on windows
Xbox seems to still be hiding in places after an install too


Option to remove these Junk Windows Apps:
WindowsFeedback_cw5n1h2txyewy
ParentalControls_cw5n1h2txyewy
Microsoft.XboxIdentityProvider_cw5n1h2txyewy
Microsoft.XboxGameCallableUI_cw5n1h2txyewy
Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy
Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy
Microsoft.Windows.CloudExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy
Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy
Microsoft.AccountsControl_cw5n1h2txyewy



Option for these Services to Remove:
Time Broker
Xbox Live Auth Manager
Xbox Live Game Save
Xbox Live Network Service
Downloaded Maps Manager
Network Connection Broker




This Junk is still all over windows LTSB N ...
None of this is needed IF you use a "computer" as a computer and NOT as a "Toy/Xbox/Thumb-Twitch SpyBox device"

thanks for the link brittech.

hopefully those features are not bloatware, which most of us would remove Razz

Well because Windows LTSB is the closest you will get to a real "windows 7 workstation"  Not a "SpyBox One"
And even after removing CrapWare with dism/winreducer or whatever ...you still have to modify registry, and setting.

the Crapware Spying [CENSORED] runs deep in Windows 10.

Give Linux a try, if you haven't done already.  Ubuntu LTS might be just what you're looking for  Wink

I think I can understand how you feel with what you perceive as spying related content in Windows, but you have to realise that Microsoft clearly want their OS to be as good as it can be, and to them, their choice was to include self-reporting features into the OS - I actually think that is a helpful thing to do; okay, so they might be going a bit too far with some of the collection, but I have nothing to hide, and where I have the option to switch off certain settings, I do.

Don't forget, the OS actually belongs to them, we only license it; I'm not entirely sure how legit projects such as this one are, maybe it's best not to ask.  Microsoft can make Windows how they choose, you have the choice not to use it if you don't want to.  I personally feel that stripping certain features out of MS Windows, though it might be good for the user, doesn't help in the grand scheme of things, but that's your choice; and that's why Winter made this app, for people like you who want to do that.

Anyway, back to your request...

Try to stay on topic at hand
IF you're going to write a reply at least be educated with what you write.


Don't suggest I use Linux as a workstation and don't suggest a linux that mimics a mac that has microsoft style spyware
Linux is another Toy..
IF you are living in the same reality I am living then you would know that Windows is where all the real desktop software is


AGAIN re-read what I wrote.. I want a Windows Desktop Workstation
I already have done this crap manually... It's just a request to have this program do it easier.

I do NOT remember writing asking for your opinions and ethics.
so stop with this nonsense that Microsoft is spying on everyone to better their OS to be the bestest OS evar.. 


Yes,  back to the request and no more irrelevant nonsense

I can't help but feel that your reply is a little rude, and the tone is not in keeping with how you should be asking for help!
If I caused you offence with my 'opinions' then I apologise, but try to be gracious in responding to someone who you think is in the wrong.  Everyone makes mistakes, don't they?

I admit that I might be in the overwhelming minority in my willingness to try other operating systems, I certainly wasn't overly serious that you should.

So, the options you were asking to remove, I wonder if you had any time to hunt down the associated files and registry entries, as that would really help Winter out and speed a solution.

Hey guys,

DJMani, what version of WinReducer are you using ? Because in the most recent ones, I've made an important cleanup support for Modern UI Apps.

And I had my Linux period in the past, this was a great experience for me because I've come back with Windows due to a better software environment for my purpose ... Wink ... DJMani, next time could you just simply tell that you are not interested by Linux.

Thank you for your understanding Smile

I guess you probably havn't messed with the "ltsb" version
I was just asking not really requesting.....If you could add the proper removal of this JunkCrap
I used ..winreducer for windows 8.1 enterprise and embedded industry..it removes everything just fine.


Well i'm using LTSB N
Right now i'm using 5.3 with an unsuccessful install. 
I get boot looping at the "just a moment" screen.
I save in Wim, Create ISO with UltraISO and Rufus2.5 to make a bootable usb. (not using a VM, doing hard way)

I'm not doing anything special on removal..Just the following steps.
I remove: IE
I remove: Metro UI, languages, keyboards, one drive, biometry,miracast, "smartscreen"
Tweaks:  some UI and disable metro boot(that's the F8 "bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy") ??
I skip first boot animation as well.

Services Removed: Windows Update, Windows Store, Windows Defender, Windows Beep, Windows Biometric
Not using unattended yet. on this 5.3 version




Now, I did Not have many errors on 5.2but it's buggy on ltsb
But after "removing" xbox, cortana/search2,one drive and the others.
they were still on LTSB after an install in the Windows/Winsxs folders and other places.
"Everything" & "File Locator Pro" show remnants and packages.
I manually "removed" everything without any errors Until I started to "remove" windows firewall..  then system crashing/nonbooting


I don't want any trace of cortana/search2 or anything metro.
shellexperiencehost is garbage ....so i dont care if that gone too.


Also:
I don't think winreducer removes these? does it?
