    Some skus don't have OneDriveSetup.exe
    Anyway it's enough to prevent OneDrive from installing (and syncing) from the registry

    Hi Freddie,
    is the script so far completely revised and up to date also for LTSC! I have looked at the "unattend.xml". Do I still have to enter my name there myself or is the name prompted during installation!!?
    And this lines"
    rem == delete telemetry executables ==
    del /s mount\Windows\System32\CompatTelRunner.exe
    del /s mount\Windows\System32\smartscreen.exe"!!??
    delete or not!???

    Thanks

    The "unattend.xml" is so you can bypass OOBE. It logs you automatically into the built-in Administrator account. You can create create a new user account afterwards
    or if you prefer to log into your own local account instead you'll need your own "unattend.xml" or "autounattend.xml"



    It's up to you if you want to keep or delete these lines. They're already disabled in the Registry
    Code:
    rem == delete telemetry executables ==
    del /s mount\Windows\System32\CompatTelRunner.exe
    del /s mount\Windows\System32\smartscreen.exe

    For what is it necessary or not! Or rather what does that!??

    Is it then possible to set up the new account without annoying confirm at each boot!??? I would like to set up the account without password prompt and then Windows boots directly into the desktop?

    You don't have to delete the executables. They're already disabled in the registry .


    Don't add a password or remove/disable the existing one.

    Create a reg file

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\AppPrivacy]
    "LetAppsAccessMicrophone"=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\CapabilityAccessManager\ConsentStore\microphone]
    "Value"="Allow"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\CapabilityAccessManager\ConsentStore\webcam]
    "Value"="Allow"

    PowerRun is 100% safe. It doesn't inject any code on it's own in any script/binary it executes. Also, I like the way Freddie's script modify the registry hives in Config directory, this makes changes permanent and the same image could be deployed on the number of devices without having to worry about making the same changes again and again.

    Thanks for the input. My approach is that unless it's open source software then you it can never be 100% safe hence I would prefer going with the microsift recommend sysinternals suite, and since I already use other parts of the sysinternals suite there is no increase in my risk exposure compared to using unknown 3rd party closed software.

    Maybe I've misunderstood Freddie-o's script. I thought that if you made changes via the regular cmd reg edit commands, registryEditor, or GroupPolicyEditor, these changes would also be permanent so that's why I asking why go down the route of making changes using DISM. Having looked into it a little further DISM looks like it generally used to alter the windows img to repair or possible to create a new boot iso? So is Freddie-o script meant to create a modified iso image pre-install (like ntlite)? I'm new to modifying so just trying to get a better understanding of the what and why's and the reasons for taking different approaches. But if Freddie-o script is to be used on an already installed version of windows then I would like to understand why Freddie-o chose this method for his script rather than just running a list of reg edit commands, what are the benefits of doing it this way if the other ways make the changes permenent and the changes are being implemented post install and this not a way to make a modded boot iso img.

    Thanks

    TY. If you want open source I suggest NSudo
    https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...em-administration-tools-general-thread.59268/

    Some registry keys can only be modified with TrustedInstaller privileges so just to avoid not being able to modify some registry keys it's best to elevate the script to TrustedInstaller
    Just replace PowerRun (exe) with NSudo and edit the "run_as_trustedinstaller.cmd" script.
    Code:
    @echo off
    pushd "%~dp0"
    "%~dp0NSudoLC.exe" -U:T -P:E disable_telemetry.cmd


    To modify the registry of an offline image you need to load the hives from Windows\System32\config

    My script modifies the registry of the Windows install wim and they are permanent unless you change them after installing the OS. Other registry changes are irreversible especially the keys that are deleted. So far the only thing I noticed is "SecHealthUI" is restored after a Cumulative update but it's just the UI.
    Some registry keys can only be modified offline plus you want to disable telemetry before you install your OS. Windows starts collecting telemetry during OOBE and once you connect to the internet it gets sent.

    Thank you Freddie-o, yes I did not fully understand that your script was ammending the offline iso prior to install, it really is excellent way to approach this and creat custom iso's. I will look to test this over the next few weeks hopefully when I get some time.

    In regard to "xxxxxxxxlearn.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/psexec" is there any way I could use psexec with your script as this meets my security/risk threshhold whereas the other options do not. I think it should be fairly simple to implement but I have no experience of doing this. Do you think simply replacing NSudoLC.exe or Powerun.exe with woudl be ok and work? Maybe you know how to implement using psExec?

    Code:
    @echo off
    pushd "%~dp0"
    "%~dp0psexec -i -d -s ".\disable_telemetry.cmd"

    What do you mean by this? Does HWID activation impact telemetry differently to KMS activation?

    The reason HWID is permanent is because your license is stored in Microsoft servers. So to activate your OS you have to go online and Microsoft checks your hardware ID (HWID) if a license is found in their database.
    With KMS38 or Online KMS, activation can be done offline or using online public KMS servers.

    Is it possible to use this anti-telemetry script for Windows 11 22H2? I saw that someone else asked this question but it was never answered specifically.
