Software Product Description

Windows Vista from Microsoft takes a lot of resources, we all know that. So here is the tool for easy removal of the unwanted components in order to make Vista run faster and to your liking. vLite can also create the bootable ISO and apply the tweaks directly.

This tool doesn't use any kind of hacking, all files and registry entries are protected as they would be if you install the full version only without the components you select for the removal.

It configures the installation directly, before the installation, meaning you'll have to remake the ISO and reinstall it. This method is much cleaner, not to mention easier and more logical than doing it after installation on every reinstall.

"good program"

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: i like these programs as they are very handy and nlite was flawless.
The only thing that spoils this one is the bug they have with waik if your running xp.
Yes you do have to download over 1.5gb in an iso form for this to work which is down to MS being strict with their licence agreement but if your running xp then you will have to copy wimgapi.dll from Program FilesWindows AIKToolsx86 to the vLite folder or you wont get past the first window on vlite.
Thats the only thing that stops me giving it full marks otherwise its another good little program.
