Same question, I read way back somewhere in pages 1 -12 that renaming or deleting the reg files was ok to do in order to remove all the customisations is this still the case with V7 ? or is it better to just comment out every line in said reg files ?

Another question WUD has in the region of 108 non security updates and 88 security updates where as the Alphawaves down loader with Wintoolkit I have been using has something like the same amount of security updates but in addition 315 hotfix along with 67 general updates that's if you ignore all the additional ones, Am I correct in assuming that this Alphawaves version is just listing every hotfix know to man rather than just the common essential ones ?

Yes, they will be a bunch of things you don't need. 108 plus 88 from WUD sounds about right.

Thanks for the list I shall compare notes with that so to speak, drop the Alpha thing and use WUD with your V7 to be on the safe side...

Sorry to be a pain in the ass on this one (I'm not sure if you're "yes" was in answer to this question) but just to double check it is ok to delete your ADM, DEF, SOFT & SYS.reg files ?

Thanks for your time and seriously useful system tools :-)

Yes, you can delete or rename the reg files. You will get a message saying there is an error because they can't be found - it doesn't matter.

Ok after completion I seen a few errors that after reading previous posts seem to pertain to these reg files missing and also I seen 4 errors that appear to be caused by superseded updates...

I used the iso to perform a clean reinstall on a laptop and all went well... after the desktop loaded I restarted just as a precaution, arriving back at the desktop again I ran sfc /scannow and it found errors that after looking at the huge CBS log file seemed to be caused by the updates needing to be renamed and moved ? I restarted again and got the message to say windows configuring updates 30% then the system restarted... I ran sfc /scannow again and no errors detected this time everything seems to be ok...

However I should not really be getting sfc errors after doing a clean install it kind of plants the seeds of doubt on the integrity of the install.... just to note I excluded the recent updates that are known to produce errors with sfc along with the one that changes a currency symbol...

Question remains is this "safe" to use on clients systems given the errors that sfc finds ? I have saved a copy of that CBS log if it is needed.

Did you notice any other anomalies with the way Updates installed, e.g. stalling at 0% downloading after Check for Updates selection, queuing on Shutdown button, ignoring Settings other than Automatic?

To answer your question I would do another test install using a pristine ISO w/SP1 to compare with this experience. Until then I would not use the slipstreamed ISO for installation on others' PC's.

Steven, who keeps the update lists going, hasn't been around since beginning of March. You are probabaly using an old update list.

Might have to do this another way.

Just to clarify a little on my last post the "updates" I am referring to are the one's that were slipstreamed into the wim... after the clean install WU had not been ran and was selected to "ask"... so none of the anomalies you mention existed / were in effect... sorry for not making that clear originally.

I performed an offline update to Net 4.5.2 and also IE11 and have been running with this install now for 14+ hours... Then after a manual check for updates using WU and what is now the usual long period of time checking for updates I downloaded and installed only the missing Security patches for Net 3.X there was no hang at 0% and WU did not change to automatic... it's all running surprisingly well (as a real test I'm using it for carrying out my work on so if anything is really wrong with the install it will go fubar in the next few hours for sure).

Though with a pristine ISO after install there are no sfc errors but all the WU related problems exist (I did that yesterday on the same system).

I think like SIW2 has just said the problem must lie in the old list and I have identified and removed some of those updates from my "updates" folder that are suspect and added a few missing ones in preparation to build another wim to test.

I figured it maybe of use to somebody if I posted an update on what I have tried so far.

I removed 4 updates from the "updates" folder and built the wim again, successfully this time without any errors (I still have the 4 reg files removed, there was no error either pertaining to them being missing).

Clean re-install with the new iso again, result exactly the same sfc /scannow corrupt files... looking at the CBS log informs me that updates were pending install but none could be found, a lot of other updates were moved and renamed... but the worrying part is the corrupt files found in C:\Windows\boot that apparently sfc has repaired.

I went ahead and did a system clean up and had it remove all the cached / old updates... the installed updates list said 220 and afterwards it reports 170 so I assume that 50 of those updates added to the wim were superseded and this is possibly what the sfc /scannow move and rename reports are about? just to note WU has not been ran at this time... I also have a copy of the CBS log if needed.
