Honestly, I'm pretty disappointed that this is a Sticky.

Don't get me wrong, the concept is excellent. But the post itself is quite disorganized, and somewhat incoherent.

Some suggestions:
1) Why not place the list of applications in alphabetical order?
2) You could also make an alternate list with the files (in order) and the programs affected by them. It would be much easier to sift through that way.
3) Why not also include Windows components that shouldn't be removed for certain apps, not just particular files.

I don't know. Just a little more info (maybe a better explanation/intro at the top of the first post) and organization, guys.

Adding BB Code also helps make it more readable. ;)

PS: I'd be glad to help out if you like. (This is a 'real' offer, not a 'sarcastic' one. Really. I'll help.)

humm...this is a good idea,
but why not you do such a thing and post it and sure any moderator or nuhi himself will make it sticky :hello:

theres a wiki version of this thread which already has some of teh programs listed (alphabetically and by component) but it does need some updating so feel free to edit it.

I thought I could contribute a little bit to this great thread. I felt like playing Mafia the other day (on of the greatest games btw) and realized that the intro was missing at the beginning and the menu video was all messed up. It was filled various colors and patterns. It didn't look nice at all. Anyway, turns out that Mafia needs the "Intel Indeo codec" to be able to run Bink Player so you might wanna keep that in mind anytime a game intro or menu graphics doesn't behave the way you wants. Besides, it doesn't impact the overall size of your UA Installation anyway so the choice should be obvious, unless gaming is completely out of the question.

I was wondering what HTTP SSL was so I searched and found the following on microsoft.com

The next auto-start service in the IIS services infrastructure that starts is the World Wide Web Publishing Service (WWW service). It is hosted by Svchost.exe. In addition to the IIS Admin and RPCSS services, the WWW service has dependencies on the HTTP SSL (HTTPFilter) service. The IIS Admin service and RPCSS were started earlier, but before SCM starts the WWW service, it needs to demand-start the HTTPFilter service.

The HTTPFilter service has dependencies on the IIS Admin service and the HTTP service. It is this dependency on HTTP that causes SCM to start the HTTP.sys kernel-mode driver. Consequently, SCM starts the HTTPFilter service, which runs in Lsass.exe (or Inetinfo.exe if you are running in IIS 5.0 isolation mode), and then starts the WWW service.


Are they talking about another HTTP Filter that would come with IIS rather than with XP SP2 ?
Anyway, I think HTTP SLL is for server-side. So if you run an IIS webserver, you'd probably keep this.
Anyone to confirm or infirm this ?


edit : but that say it is dependant on HTTP and this driver(http.sys) is also listed in the registry. I've stopped it here and I can still browse. I'll reboot and check; this seems weird.

Korean language support is needed for KMPlayer. If you remove it, the program doesn't launch. It doesn't even show an error message. You click the exe and nothing happens.

Ah, if this is true, perhaps someone ought to correspond with the KMPlayer developers. I was hoping to try this player on my stripped-down XP installation the other day, however after appearing to install successfully, attempting to launch the software has no effect.

Cheers,
James

DCOM, but not if you only have SP1. With SP1, Quicken finds a way to run without it. Amazing.

Realtek HD Audio for onboard 7.1 setups requires hhctrl.ocx, to access it in the control panel. Without access to this panel, there is no way to enable 'Stereo Mix', which lets you record what you hear. Major problem for screen recording software like FRAPS, but easily fixed by copying the file over to your system32 dir, or adding it to keepfiles in nLite.

Re: HTTP SSL, post 81.
Camarade Tux, stuff on microsoft site doesn't count. Only your experiences. Did you find out anything more? I think SSL not dependent on Cryptographic Service in SP1, but is in SP2. This is my blurry memory so I wouldn't even include it in my first post. Also notice there is an HTTP SSL service in SP2 (or in later service pack?), but not in SP1.

iTunes 6.0.4.2 + Winamp 5.24 + NTI CD Maker 6.5+ Dependency: Wmasf.dll + Wmidx.dll

If you remove Windows Media Player 8 (but leave Windows Media Player Classic 6.4) with nLite from Windows XP these programs will not function correctly or will display missing file errors when opening because they require the following files that are removed: Wmasf.dll + Wmidx.dll. If you add these files back into the System 32 folder from an non Nlited XP install these programs will function correctly with no errors. thumbup.gif


Update: The same applies to iTunes 7, NTI CD Maker 7, and Winamp 5+!


Dr Watson: Program dependent on dbgeng.dll file and won't run without it. Solution: Add dbgeng.dll from a non nLited XP to Windows System 32 folder.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 7: Program dependent on Windows Update Manager and won't install without it.

Microsoft Outlook 97, 2000, XP, 2003: Program dependent on Outlook Express and won't work without it. Microsoft Outlook 2007 isn't dependent on Outlook Express and will work without it. You can Use Thunderbird or other 3rd party software instead as it isn't dependent on Outlook/Outlook Express.

Windows Defender (a.k.a. Microsoft Antispyware): Program dependent on Windows Update and won't install or if you get it to install won't be able to update without it. It was originally designed by GIANT AntiSpyware which was bought out by M$ and was rebranded as Microsoft Antispyware with Beta 1 and Windows Defender with Beta 2, and now is being integrated as a M$ service dependent on M$ update. Possible Solution: Sunbelt Software which was Giant's partner has released CounterSpy based on GIANT Antispyware, which I have tested and it works well. From what I have read it's also a well regarded product!

Windows Media Player 11: Program dependent on Imapi CD Burning to burn CD's. WMP can still rip music CD's, but because it's dependent on the Imapi CD Burning service; it can't burn music CD's. Use iTunes, Winamp or other 3rd party software instead to burn CD's.

Yahoo Music/Radio + Yahoo Jukebox (formerly MusicMatch Jukebox): Are dependent on Windows Media Player 8. Yahoo Jukebox will tell you it can't install because of this problem, but Yahoo Radio will try to work but fail without any specific error. If you install WMP 8 or higher then these apps should work. I installed WMP 11 and then both apps worked fine.
