  1. I'd have to agree. There are really two main reasons you'd want to slim down an os insallation. One would be to fit the installation media onto something it wouldn't fit in (i.e. CD) which isn't a problem anymore really since 16GB thumb drives are so cheap and readily available. Two would be to start off with maximum performance just after installation which can really be accomplished with Win Toolkit. I basically tweaked my services a bit further from Blackviper's "tweaked" configuration. You can do the same which would be about the best you can do as far as gaining performance and speed. If you need to strip it any further than what Win Toolkit allows then you're probably going to affect stability of the OS. Back when they stripped the hell out of Windows 7 and Windows XP I think it was because hardware was still bottlenecking things a bit more. Now with the hardware spending that much time stripping an installation isn't going to gain you all that much performance.
  2. It's not really worth it in my opinion. From my experience you have to let each set of updates slipstream into each single version and THEN end up with a big image. I did this a couple years back and just made me realize it wasn't worth repeating over and over every so often with a new set of updates every month. I would say you're better off just keeping an updated set of .msu's or whatever updates and then integrate into whatever version you need at the moment. btw, when I did do it it wasn't very hard. You just use Windows Toolkit and select ALL versions to integrate them into if I'm not mistaken (which I might be since it's been a while).
  3. I've seen AVG antivirus cause this symptom in my Windows 10 installation. Looks like you're on Windows 7 but try and consider whether or not it's a combination of AVG and anything else you're using.
