    Has anyone read far enough along in above URLs to note whether the "slimming" down of XP was strictly for standalone boxes or networked?

    That's a good point, major marco. I'm on a stand alone machine. Never got into networking...that might be a completely different guide.

    If it were me, and I was on a network of computers, I'd be careful not to delete those components...Like certain Services I delete for sure.

    I tried XPlite on 2000 and it worked just fine.

    Just to let you all know, there has been a domain change for my guide. A very nice lady who lives in England actually bought and paid for the site, and then gave it to me, just so my guide would always have a home.

    Here's the complete guide...

    But this is handy to help you pinpoint certain aspects of the guide...

    Hi Bold_Fortune

    Nice to meet You

    I'm usually here on a regular basis, but have been away helping my Mom recover from a stroke. Just popped home for a night and gone again for another while. Turned on the comp and noticed your Post.

    Always pleased to see new faces and especially those of such obvious knowledge in things computer. Good group of Folks here and hope to see more of you down the road.

    Thanks for your updates and for the original as well. It has been an invaluable guide.

    Hi everyone, it's been a very long time since I posted here. I ran into this thread again doing a search for me. (Thank sounds funny. lol)

    I wanted to let people know what has happened to my site.

    My site is down, and will remain down. It was never really "my" site, it belonged to Sadie, a lady who lives in England. She gave it to me to support my work on Slimming Down Windows XP: The Complete Guide. You can read more about it here...

    http://www.graphixanstuff.com/Forum/...showtopic=9354

    ....Jan has hosted the guide for you in the event of something like this happening. Jan's copy of my guide is the only copy that I have granted permission to host, and it is the only copy posted on the Internet I keep updated. It's there for you when you need it.

    The guide was always for you. That's why I created it. It is my gift to those who always wanted to know which files they can delete from Windows XP, but couldn't find their answers...my site was only an after thought.

    The guide is here for you when you need it...

    SLIMMING DOWN WINDOWS XP: THE COMPLETE GUIDE

    ....Sincerely,

    Bold_Fortune
