    Cleanup-image:
    no resetbase = compression of the superseded components, takes longer and results in a slightly larger install.wim
    with resetbase = deletion of the superseded components, faster and results in a slightly smaller install.wim

    Full resetbase breaks the resetpc option.

    I resolved the Windows Store problem by changing the WUAUSERV (Windows Update Service) DWORD value from 4 (disabled) to 3 (manual).
    However, I don't know what the behavior of Windows Update will be like. I wanted Windows Update to work only when asked by us. But I think it will carry out the updates automatically.

    @RaiyvaN
    make sure that windows updates medic service is completely disabled.
    reg value 4
    then you can set windows updates service to manual, then doo test.

    I only have Windows Update Service in manual, the others I kept set to disabled. But I will check this option, as I may never have configured it. So downloads from the Windows Store are back up and running. Until this moment.

    Edit: Checked. WaaSMedicSvc is set to 4 (disabled) and wuauserv set to 3 (manual), allows the functionality of downloads and updates in the Windows Store to remain in operation.


    At the moment, I am performing more tests because I had problems with wifi in the 2004 H1 versions. That had not occurred in the 1909 H2.
    The Diagnostic Policies Service - DPS is set to Automatic, but does not run. It breaks and does not allow connection to any type of network.

    Can anyone confirm if they had this problem? I think it might be related to the removal of the Wi-Fi Network Manager. Just a hypothesis.

    does windows narrator function for you correctly?
    could you post the package list you used to slim down your image?
    i'm worried that a few items that I removed in the past scrood my narrator?
    so had to remake the image.

    I did not remove ease of access theams windows backup system restore,
    corse just cause narrator did not work does not mean that the hole image was borked due to me being blind I could not tell so scrapped the image and started anew.
    as to your wifi-manager item I did not remove that sorry.

    You're not in the right section to ask. Here we are speaking of MSMG toolkit.

    You have to maintain what is related to Speech Recognition. The speech updates must be kept enabled.

    I will do the following: I will post the list of what I kept.

    And, you tell me what else is possible to remove. And, I tell you if it's interesting or not.

    Consider the fact that I left an option to remove components related to games and gameplay. And, another option to remove the Mixed Reality pack, but it seems that it no longer comes in the 2004 versions.

    Note: Keep in mind that there are several components that can be obtained from the Windows Store.

    Here is the list of the components maintained.

    What would you recommend in 2020 for privacy. Would you recommend I use the latest version of LTSC 2019 with MSMG to remove some privacy components or use LTSB 2016? I heard 2016 is better because the cortona is separate from the start menu and task bar.

    Hi, Thanks for the tool. I have some issues. Pls correct me if am doing anything wrong.
    Base Image:- en_windows_10_business_editions_version_2004_updated_may_2020_x64_dvd_aa8db2cc.iso
    Windows 10 Pro selected.

    1)Tool v10.1,
    Removed unwanted package's using RemovePkgsList toolkit method.
    Removing was fast.

    Issues: Not able to install CU update manually/ using update also. Other security updates, Driver updates work's fine. Only CU update issue. Giving error

    "There were some problems installing updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help: (0x800f0988)"

    When exporting wim image, DISM using 100% of CPU power. Is it normal

    2)Tool v10.0 with Updated Toolkit.cmd
    Removed unwanted packages' using RemovePkgsList toolkit method.
    Only issues is very slow removal. Took me an hour.

    Every thing works properly. CU update works manually/ using update service also.
    Is their any specific routine to follow in v10.1 .

    Thanks.

    MSMG, Some problems with uninstalling SmartScreen and Defender

    Internet Explorer 11 Messages while downloading files:
    Windows Defender SmartScreen is Turned off
    Windows Defender SmartScreen Scanning files

    RemovePkgsList
    Code:
    ToolKitHelper:SecurityCenter
    ToolKitHelper:SmartScreen
    ToolKitHelper:WindowsDefender
    ToolKitHelper:WindowsStore
    p.s
    I did an analysis to remove packages, some defender packages were not removed (2-3 in total) from the system. This is due to ToolKitHelper.
    Why are you adding the rest?

    Hi, Issue's not fixed. Waiting for the solution.
    Some workaround is , use v10.0 version with the updated toolkit.cmd file. It worked properly. But will take more time for removal.

    Thanks.

    Anyone have any idea how to get the recent codec bug fixes if you don't have access to the Microsoft Store? Also, can these "out of band" updates be integrated into the image with the toolkit?
