I am looking for some help with scripted installation. I have created an XP scripted instal and a post install task which replaces the Default NTUSER.DAT. There are a few other things I would like to do. I would like to remove windows components "games", "MSN Explorer", and "Windows messenger". Has anyone successfully done this on a scripted instal? I would also like to disable the "Take a tour of Windows XP" application from loading. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Again I am looking to do this with a scripted install and do not want to create an image.

I think I figured out how to do it in the unattended file by adding the following:

[Components]
Freecell = "Off"
Hearts = "Off"
etc.

Then to disable the Windows XP Tour I had to run the following Reg Edit:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Tour]
"RunCount"=dword:00000000

Hope this helps others.

So for my Windows XP scripted installs I'm editing the Setup Configuration file and adding these items under the Components section. This will have the all the games, msn explorer and Windows messenger uninstalled or disabled.

[components]
msnexplr = "off"
freecell= "off"
hearts= "off"
minesweeper= "off"
pinball= "off"
solitaire= "off"
spider= "off"
zonegames= "off"
WMAccess = "off"
