    Used this on Win98 (98lite) a few years ago when setting up a games only PC.
    Worked a treat. Got my Win98 install size down to under 50MB and my boot time down to uder 10 secs :D

    Nice piece of software. Might have to give XPlite a try and see if it's as good as 98lite was.

    Finally a way to get rid of the crap! :)

    Got to be invaluable for any HCPC as half the services aren't needed for any PC which is only used for one purpose.

    Hi All,
    Well i used the program To srip out everything except direct x seems stable enough xp now runs at just over 1 gig with half a gig(ish) of bloatware removed with no discernable problems. probably could get more off if i took the HCPC off my home network.

    Ok got in. Managed to get my Windows (XP Pro) folder to 782MB (size on disk) but one problem- the Start button has no lost the "Windows XP Pro" text- it's just black. Whoops! :)
