    Last sessions looks like youve covered most of the bases, to be more extreme i only have the following 3 services running which uses 38mb RAM (without everything else running)
    ------------------------------------------
    Plug and Play
    Remote procedure Call (RPC)
    Windows Audio

    RAM Usage.......... 35.7Mb
    Processes............. 11
    Threads................. 131
    Handles................. 1780
    --------------------------------------------

    If i need to add more software/uninstall I have a registry file that puts all settings back to default, otherwise it causes crashes (but only when installing)

    To get your Windows intall down you could also remove alot more of Windows

    Seen as you integrate your drivers you could also remove (And PCMCIA if your not using a laptop)

    Code:
    ;# Drivers #
    Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)
    Cameras and Camcorders
    Display Adapters
    Display Adapters (old)
    IBM PS/2 TrackPoint
    IBM Thinkpad
    ISDN
    Logitech WingMan
    Microsoft SideWinder
    Modems
    Portable Audio
    Printers
    Scanners
    SCSI/RAID
    Serial Pen Tablet
    Sony Jog Dial
    Sound Controllers
    Tape drives
    Toshiba DVD decoder card
    You could also shave lots off my remove keyboards

    Theres plenty more you can do on top of that, that will shave about 150mb off your image file, and make windows directory way smaller

    Also there is a way of getting windows to automatically disable the keyboard and mouse just before shutdown/hibernate and re-enable them on startup/resume using a tool called Devcon by Microsoft.

    I use it cos my USB touchscreen doesnt always work after hibernate.

    you guys are on the right track... but for even more *shaving the fat* so to speak, get a program called NLITE ( http://www.nliteos.com/ )

    you can shave win2k pro down to 60mb's install cd, xp pro sp2 ive shaved down to 220mb's install cd

    basicly what it does is break down the xp install cd so you can shave out all the bloat ware that ms thinks the common user needs, i use nlite to make gamer xp disks and have also used it to make my carputer install cd, you can incorporate nvidia drivers (graphix, chipset, sata, lan etc etc) or any other drivers you may need, its quite slick as you can remove ALL of the legacy support drivers and legacy garbage that make xp "compatable" but if you install your OWN drivers for your specific hardware you DONT need any of it cept the core files of xp check it out definately a ++++!

    You might want to actually read the original post before replying

    "Windows XP (nlited)"

    not to mention the line in the above post

    "Outof curiosity , how big is you nlite install and how big is your windows when installed ?"

    And my install is 192mb from disk and 144mb from CD - i need to make it smaller than that!
