Windows 7 Installation ISO -> .Reg questions and generally

Recommended Posts

I'm tweaking my Windows 7 SP1 x64 installation ISO with dism (updates only) and all the tweaks and other options are applied with WinToolKit v1.4.1.28.
I currently have some questions/problems I haven't solved, which therefore I write here smile.gif

1. Start-Menu ->

I want to be apply to delete the items on Start-Menu -> All Programs, which I include here:

Startup (hide the folder)
Maintenance (everything, including folder)
Games (everything, including folder)
Accessories -> Remove these: Command Prompt, Connect to a Projector, Getting Started, Paint, Remote Desktop Connection, Sound Recorder, Sync Center, Windows Explorer, Ease of Access, Windows Poweshell.

Also I want to remove/disable the user picture on start-menu, I do know that's possible but I want to enable this tweak "pre-installed". Meaning I dont want to apply any tweaks nor any manually tweaks after the Windows installation, I just want that picture removed with the space if possible.

2. Taskbar ->
A second registry problem, I want to remove/delete pinned items on the taskbar. The .reg file is here below:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


3. Samples/Folders ->

Have may I delete these following folders and the contentin them (pre-done with Windows installation):

C:\Users\*\Saved Games
C:\Users\*\My Videos
C:\Users\*\ -> Sample Pictue & Music

4. UAC Icons ->

I have removed UAC settings and disabled it via services and WinToolKit but the icons are still left, is their any registry hack to remove it or do I need a .bat script running silent in the windows installation/RunOnce?

Thanks for your help and I may beg-pardon for any lackness in my english or grammar :)

1. For start menu you should modify both of two written bellow

a. Shortcut: %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\StartMenu

b. Reg Settings: HKCU \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StartPage2


2. For Pinned Program you should modify both of two written bellow

a. Shortcut: %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

b. Reg Settings: [HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband]



3. It is default profile settings that apply after installation of windows or created new User account. So it will change default profile settings. You should better replace with your modified one.


4. It is very good option for security. I think it should not be removed.
