As is always the case, Micro$haft prematurely releases buggy updates of their products. Check out this article. It seems they pulled the update because it was deleting files. This is the primary reason why I switched my updates to "Semi-Annual Channel". Let them fix it before I bring it down. In the mean time W10 continues to work OK.
They pulled it because it might affect Enterprise users because if it deletes their data, MSFT will be sued for data deletion w/o user consent.

I don't remember if the article specifically states that only Enterprise is affected. Even if that were the case, this is a grave problem that must be fixed before any further releases.

So far only Home editions users were affected. They rectified it and now its distributing.

Tonight, windows 10 x64 pro Redstone 5 (with the October updates) is available. This time it’s really the Pro edition.
For Vasudev who is waiting for windows 7, I'll release an extra lite edition with the October updates.

As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5, netfx 4.7.2, dx9 (and 11) and many programs.
Nothing was deleted in winsxs and to obtain such a size, install.wim was converted into esd.
It contains 7zip 18.05, winrar 3.61, Treesize free, subtitles edit, Visual C++ Runtime Installer (All-In-One) v56...and the latest drivers.
list of the embedded drivers here: https://justpaste.it/6golp
Nothing was removed except the useless recovery file winre.wim
Sumatra PDF reader and vlc are not included in this one, unlike earlier versions.
Fx sound enhancer was added (full version).
Windows defender is disabled by default but can be re-enabled again via gpedit.msc.

and here is the link for a switch-less win10 activator (encrypted & automatic).
I encrypted it to store it more easily since some antivirus detect it as a virus. Disable your antivirus before executing the exe (it’s not a virus).
A few seconds later,it’s done.

Tonight, windows 7 x64 Professional SP1 lite Tunisia edition with the latest updates is available.

Some users of the forum like Vasudev were eagerly waiting for it.
As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5 and netfx 4.7.2, dx9 (and 11) and many programs.
It was updated with the October updates, 7zip 18.05, winrar 3.61 full, Visual C++ Runtime Installer (All-In-One) v56...and the latest drivers.
list of the embedded drivers here: https://justpaste.it/7id4j
The useless recovery file winre.wim and a few obsolete drivers (printers) were deleted.
Fx sound enhancer was added (full version).
Note that harkaz's rebase was used to make it lighter (extreme cleanup). The program is available in %systemdrive% (at a time it wasn't free but harkaz may still find a donation useful). Some useless content was also removed in the winsxs folder. It may cause problems for the future updates.

If you have activation problems: https://mega.nz/#!PXZHTIzB!QUp86oPcQJkj4dBgctKa7aQB9KjlAHpjUblN6yUWr2E



Note that you can still download xp here (an updated, lite version of Maher’s edition which includes every update):
kb4012598 and wmp11 with its updates have been integrated. What’s more, some visual tweaks were applied as you can see on the screenshot below.
Finally, a few unneeded elements were removed (the list is available in the nlite log in the iso file).

And Here is office 2007 with most updates, till August 2018 (it’s a switch-less installer).
https://mega.nz/#!zmpCHSzI!NRfwpk_B8zIa515gPIpKQarA3Ry50zuCAk_OcHjiqyc

And here is the MUI pack for office 2007. it includes many languages (notably French, German, italian, Japan, Russian, Arabic). With this pack you can change the user interface language of office 2007 by using the “Microsoft Office 2007 Language Settings”. It's practically impossible to find it today.
