    Windows store, block or remove defender, skydrive and all other apps

    MSMG, If I understood correctly the tool should be used on a target windows 8.x iso before actually installing it, or can we still use it's junk removal features on a freshly installed OS.

    Yes for servicing install.wim and then installing it.

    I'm using install_wim_tweak_NET4.6.exe to remove packages

    however something weird is happening (Partial Code):

    Code:
    Set WIMTWEAK=%A%:\Apps\Resources\install_wim_tweak_NET4.6.exe
    
    Echo --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Echo "IWT Remove Packages/Apps"
    Echo --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /l
    Move "packages.txt" "%BUILD%\8.1 Build\8.1 Features\"
    
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "VpnPlugin" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "Microsoft-Hyper-V" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "InternetExplorer" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "IE-Troubleshooters" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "Windows-Defender" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "VirtualPC" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "OneDrive" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "Server-Help" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "IIS-WebServer" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "NetFx-Shared" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "OfflineFiles" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "Telnet" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "SnippingTool" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "StickyNotes" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "RemoteFX" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "RemoteDesktop" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c "RemoteAssistance" /r
    "%WIMTWEAK%" /p %MOUNT% /c  "Adobe-Flash" /r
    
    
    It doesn't remove them but does make them available for DISM to remove under /Get-Packages.
    Why would it not be removing them?

    Oddly it does work for Microsoft-Hyper-V, Server-Help, Adobe-Flash & Windows-Defender

    CEIP is integral for the operation of the OS. However the updates are what make it somewhat prickly. I have a script to do such removal though.

    I plan to give it a spin before posting it online though :). Only downside its all powershell.

    Dont mind Powershell as long as we can find some way to prevent MS from spying on us and using our ISP Bandwidth, how they want. I dont even mind a Post install Remover :)

    Well at the moment I have the script and have tested it. However in order to make it work I used a powershell module that I imported in. I want an automated means of deployment for personal use.

    I will post what is in working order:

    1. Detecting the specific KB that is installed - Done
    2. Removing the KB as a result of it being installed - Done
    3. Blocking the Specific KB at the end of it - Done
    4. Getting it done without having to manually install the Powershell Module - Not done.

    I have 2 sides of this:

    The first removes after the update has been installed. Along with the flip side that puts the blocker in place right after the install finishes :). Even though you make a custom iso in the process.
