Custom windows 7 installation disc.

So, I would like to make a custom windows 7 professional installation disc.
I would like the installation of:
Vlc player.
uTorrent.
Google chrome browser.
Ccleaner.
Defraggler.

And remove unnecessary programs / functions of the Windows installation disc.

So, what I need to do to make these things succeed?
Yes, I have come to rt 7 lite program, but I do it will not work.

This is NOT a good idea. Every single program on your list is regularly updated. If you ever figured out how to do it it would be out of date before you burned it to DVD. Much better to download and install the latest versions of these tools or use Ninite - Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once
once you have updated the Windows install. You can also remove items from the Programs & Features / Turn Windows Features on and off.

If those programs have a silent install and you do the Win7 installation from USB then it can work, you just download the latest version before a new install and replace the old version on the USB. I do this with my drivers that are installed during Windows install.

This does all depend on the updated software package. The main 2 things are that the setups silent commands havn't changed, which you'll most likely want to check and can be easily changed with the method I use and the installation hasn't changed much.

The method I use to install my drivers and Office involve downloading the Windows 7 AIK (Automated Installation Kit, 1.7GB) and setting up a Unattended xml file. You can also setup Windows the way you want then compress the installation into a wim file and add that to the Win7 installation media but then you have to start from scratch too update programs before a new install which is way to time consuming.

The AIK also allows you to enable or disable certain programs/functions in Windows but I don't think it actually removes any files so no space is saved or minimal at most. It's limited on what can be removed though.

Anyway you can read up on it a bit if nothing better is suggested. Here's a link to just some documentation/help files for it. It's only 5.5mb, saves downloading the whole thing if it's too complicated or not what you want.
