Note that the movie "A classic horror story" was disappointing, hence its removal.

Microsoft Windows / Re: Windows 7 Component Store Cleanup - Rebase

Splendid idea. Always remember this: the programs you preinstalled are very easy to obtain by those who really need them. You also have the option of putting a small text file on the desktop with recommended software and links. This way users can easily pick and choose.
You won't have to use Iobit uninstaller, should you install it again, indeed.
Actually, to make things simpler, I made a "AIO switchless installer" with all the programs that were once installed during "oobe" in the previous windows 10 edition and added many more programs (therefore many more programs than in the previous windows image you made a fuss about). You can already find some of these programs on the forum. All of them are free or registered editions. All the programs are installed once this file is executed (there is a popup for Filezilla server because it doesn't support a complete silent installation, maybe I'll find a better alternative).
If some users are interested in this, or if some want to improve this, let me know and I will upload it (the size is roughly 1gb).
It includes the following programs:
Code: [Select]
mediacoder
GDHO
firefox
vlc
innosetup-6.2.0
handbrake
PsychoPinball
easus partition master
LameXP
Sumatra
Pdfcreator

Tonight, I'm going to reveal something.
I found a trunk in a garage in the house of my father. Since he died, I guessed he left it for me. Inside, I found some old photos with my father and my mother. I put some of them on the forum (maybe you remember the photos of the trip to Cairo in 1982) but I deleted this message since it might not be interesting for the users of the forum. And I found another document. A declaration of abandonment of a child dating back to December 1950. My mother was an adopted child. She told me this years ago but I didn't want to believe this. This is evidence she was telling the truth. I will probably never know my real grand parents. I thought that my grandparents were the real ones even if I never knew my grand father - he died in 1981 of lung cancer (he was a coal miner) and I was born shortly after.
The real name of my mother was Catherine De Scherrer. If you are over 90 and if your name is De Scherrer and if you had a daughter in 1950, chances are you are my grand father.

I followed your recommendation: all the programs installed during "oobe" were removed. The size of the disk image is 400 mb smaller. The new version is available here: https://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=3350.msg36418#msg36418

Splendid idea. Always remember this: the programs you preinstalled are very easy to obtain by those who really need them. You also have the option of putting a small text file on the desktop with recommended software and links. This way users can easily pick and choose.

The main reason these operating systems are preloaded with garbage is because those who make the garbage do everything in their power so that people will USE their unwanted programs. That's how they profit. They even pay computer manufacturers to preload their trash. I believe the most detestable example is Microsoft Edge. M$ puts links on the desktop, the taskbar, and on the first page of the program menu. I've heard they even go as far as that when you put anything other than Edge as the default browser, and ad comes out and says "there is no need for another browser, you already have the best browser in the world".  I absolutely HATE M$ Edge and will not use it under ANY circumstances.

Incidentally, I'm well aware of the fact that the dastarly examples in the previous paragraph in no way apply to you (you=Scarface). You do it for what you believe is the benefit of the user with no self-gain involved.

Chit Chat / Re: What kind of meat (or cheese) is it?
« Last post by scarface on July 22, 2021, 01:42 PM »
Tonight, I'm going to present another cheese.

Look carefully at the photo below.
Pay attention to the subtle color of the cheese. And look at the fungal flora on its rind. It is beginning to melt and it smells like feet. This cheese is incredible.



This cheese is called "Tomme de Savoie". Tomme de Savoie is an upland variety of Tomme cheese, specifically, one from Savoy in the French Alps. You can see a map of Savoie below.
The maturing takes around 2-4 months during which the cheese starts to develop a thick grey rind dotted with patches of yellow or red moulding.
Tomme de Savoie dates back to ancient history.





Note that this cheese is banned in the US since the FDA stopped French cheeses like Roquefort, St. Nectaire, Morbier and Tomme de Savoie from coming into the USA.

I'm on vacation, and I was thinking shadow.97, aa1234779, Vasudev or Maher may want to see photos of a special place in Ile de France, but for the moment I have no idea. The champs Elysées and Paris have become so old fashioned that I'm looking for better places. In Clamart in the Hauts de Seine? The observatory of Meudon? some photos in Seine St Denis?
If you have some suggestions, you can tell me.

I consider it a real pain when you download *any* OS (yours or someone else's) and you have to waste useful time simply taking out the garbage.

As for the question about who uses it or not, it won't give rise to a real debate, if you think handbrake is a useless program, you can explain this on the handbrake forum, maybe they will counter your arguments.


Who said anything about handbrake being a useless program? How can I make that judgement when I don't even use it myself? Shadow likes it and maybe some others here on the forum do too. If it weren't preinstalled, whoever needs it can very easily download and install a copy. Preloading it implies just about everyone wants it and uses it. Most of us probably end up removing it. This is not because the program is bad, simply because they have no use for it.
