List Of Common RegTweaks

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone got a list of common regtweaks and their functions for use in a vista unattended file?

I have read FireGeier's guide and managed to take some from there and other posts on the forum, but surely, there must be plenty more? :unsure:

On that above tweak, you may want to remove the deleting the run key...i use this script to clean out startup files when installing, so if you were using this on a pc that isnt a fresh install..that may cause some complications.

It also has some stuff directly related to my installs, like disabling incd service (which is bundled with nero essentials).

Thanks for sharing this. Always love to know what items other SysAdmins are setting as default in their Windows installs. I incorporated a few of your tweaks into my own post-install script.
