Vlited Win7022 1.27g idles at 208mb ram!

#1
I have successfully Vlited Win7022 to the size of 1.27g so that it can run fast on my old laptop with 528 ram. Following is the vlite log of items removed, mostly Media Center, languages, drivers (I have my own)).

To avoid having to download the huge MS add-on to vlite, simply install the old 1.1.6 version and then upgrade/overwrite it with the latest 1.2. There is no 7lite yet, but vlite recognizes and works with w7 well.

Particularly nice is that the popular web download of Window 7 beta LITE had a sticky notes bug which required removing it, however with this config sticky notes, gadgets and everything else works fine.

With security center, defender, updates services disabled, no aero and graphics edited down, I am idling at 208 mb. Re-enable these and it idles around 256 which is only half my ram. The lowest impact av is always Avast, and I use Spybot to manually rightclick scan downloads..
