ahh...the one by eXPerience....looks like it auto-activates itself. I would be wary of that eventhough the group has been known for good releases. If you don't want to use that lite build but are still into looking for one than lookup Windows 7 Media Edition or Elite Edition or Xtreme (if liquid ever released it) Edition. Me and liquid made Media Edition and Elite Edition. If you can wait a bit longer than I am testing the upcoming ZLite Edition (by SFT)

absolutely...

I am waiting for a Windows 7 Xtreme build or something of the sort to be released by SFT. When that happens I will install that build.

That is a very wrong misconception. The amount of HDD space taken up doesn't affect performance. Unless you have such a small drive that there is barely any free space.

I can tell you from experience, ripping parts out of the OS doesn't make it any faster or responsive. In fact it can have a lot more of a negative impact then anything. (Case and point, your slow login problem)

Although the discussion of the of the merits or not of stripped down windows builds is OK, any discussion of self activating and thus cracked builds is a breach of forum rules.

please keep the discussion within the rules

Best way to make it faster is to tweak what services start up and which dont.
