It worked!! The Windows 10 file Vasudev sent updated perfectly. Installed without a hitch over 20H2. This is probably the first time a Windows upgrade installed perfectly without a hiccup. Congrats Vasu!!! How'd you do it?

One thing I absolutely hate about installing a higher version of Windows over an older one. All the garbage you spent time to remove? This thing puts it all back in!! Fortunately W10 privacy that helps automate the process of getting rid of it. And of course, once again you have to go in and re-disable Windows Defender. I hate it!! All it does is detect keygens, hacks and other false positives. It also adamantly stops any attempt to disable telemetry or other garbage Microsoft loves. Even worse is that it does NOT detect REAL malware the way EEK does. EEK is excellent.

Nice to hear that. Do note, me and scarface use same scripts like usual.
EEK is on-demand scanner and has no real time protection component. For real time protection Defender or EAM, ESET are some of them.
You can run Dism Normal cleanup and don't use /ResetBase which destroys System reset component aka Reset My PC feature.

I'm seeing you have to buy both EAM and ESET. Do you use real time protection of just scan with EEK every now and then or if you suspect something strange?

I use the cracked version of Ccleaner combined with the latest winapp2.ini. I also use the registry cleaner that comes with Yamicsoft. They work great, my system always runs OK.

I don't care what anybody says. You MUST do cleaning, there is no other way.

I stopped using CCleaner and yamicsoft. Replaced it with Bleachbit w/ winapp2.ini, Wise Disk Cleaner, Wise Reg cleaner and Hibit Uninstaller (reg cleaner gave me issue and other parts are good.)
I use Win defender and EEK for on-demand scanning when i suspect WD has missed some threats.
I have a LiveCD of ESET, Dr. web on USB drive using ventoy. So, I can recover data or cleanup/remove malwares using them.

Using HashTab is straight-forward!
  • Main UI:  The first screenshot where it will display all selected hashes which can be found by using Settings.
    You can right click a hash value and save it as well.
    Image 1:
  • After saving the file, it will have same filename with extension based on Hash function you used i.e MD5/SHA1/SHA2..... which is shown in Second screenshot and you will see a long value which can paste in Hash Comparison text box. Do note that extra spaces/blanks/tabs is read as different hash so be careful while copying from docs/websites.
    Image 2:
  • If hashes are correct/matching you will see Green Tick mark otherwise it will red cross mark.
    Image 3:

I'm unsure if its too complicated to follow or you're totally confused after reading my explanation on how to use HashTab.

I only used it for the game repacks on the forum. Note that I tried to make a smaller repack for the games "the room", to no avail. I didn't find unused files that can be deleted either.

You can use abbodi's package to integrate netfx35 post install which reduces disk space and enables better dism cleanups. I saved 350-500MB per edition https://github.com/abbodi1406/dotNetFx35W10

You're welcome. I'm glad you understood it the first time. If you didn't I don't know how to re-phrase them in a simple way. haha..

Well, I didn't know this package. But I'm afraid it might impede the installation of future updates.
I'll try to upload some new versions soon.

Note that I left Grau du Roi this morning. I hope you enjoyed the photos on the forum.

At first I didn't get it. Then I started playing around with it until it finally made sense.

Did you say you used ESD to put this ISO together? If so, what exactly does that mean? What ever you did it works great. Both the desktop and the lappie upgraded without a hitch. How'd you accomplish this?
