Hi guys, i found this registry key that makes it possible to start windows without sihost.exe This will disable all the modern windows crap and makes a difference in performance. Starting without sihost my system uses about 100MB less ram. The problem is, this leaves me without the view available networks flyout (and of course new settings, startmenu, action center - which i don't care for). So has anybody tried to port the windows 7 popup/flyout to windows 8 or 10? It seems system32\van.dll is responsible for the flyout. Replacing the win10 one with the version from windows 7 did not work. Calling the popup via rundll32 did not work. Any suggestions? Are there dependencies, other resources it needs? Or is there maybe something in the shell that is needed but not available anymore in windows 10? I tried for hours to find a suitable replacement for the builtin windows network manager, but couldn't find anything. Except portlock wifi manger (which is a bit too expensive coming in a suite with other tools).
