    The thing about Windows is that many things are interconnected and share code. When you disable, or remove, one thing you can often have "unanticipated results" regarding some other function. I'd guess that's what you're experiencing right now.

    I used RT 7Lite for a while but eventually decided it was a waste of time. I've got Windows 7 Ultimate running on a computer whose specs are dismal: 1 GB RAM and the CPU is a quite old AMD XP3000+ single core. Multitasking is not good, but other than that it runs very well. Same for our two Netbooks: typical Netbook specs but Windows 7 runs very well.

    My Netbook is an Asus EeePC 1000HE. It runs the "full version" of Windows 7 Home Premium very well. I did up it's RAM to 2GB, but for the time it had the original 1GB it ran very well still.

    I think it's because you 're not have Internet explorer, but i also think you could fix-it if you're planned to install microsoft office (2003 or higher).

    At almost the end of installation of office, the last screen in fact you can check online for update, if you check you'll be on Microsoft Update, cause Office pick up there.

    And if you don't install Office, you 'll need to temporarly install Internet Explorer, unable microsoft update and uninstall explorer.

    IMHO, i always install full original image to avoid problems;)

    installing office and change update settings after installation did the trick! Now I need to find out how to activate office 2013. CODY's toolkit with AUTOKMS is not working for me :confused:

    thanks

    Create a .txt file and put this:
    Set ServiceManager = CreateObject("Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager")
    ServiceManager.ClientApplicationID = "My App"
    Set NewUpdateService = ServiceManager.AddService2("7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d",7,"")

    Then change the extension from .txt to .vbs. And run it. I hope it works.Good Luck
