Windows 7 Image?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Every once and a while, when i feel that my windows installation has too much junk on it, I reinstall windows. Each time i do this, i have to waste time installing essential software and installing windows updates. What software should I use to image my windows installation after these programs and updates are installed? Then Each time i want to reinstall, I already have everything ready?

Thanks.

nLite. You can bundle programs and drivers with a Windows 7 ISO into a fully customizeable ISO.

Alternatively, you can still use your original Windows 7 ISO, but use Ninite (http://ninite.com/), which automates installation of a bunch of programs that you can select from. Saves the hassle of going to each individual website to grab the setup files.

Which version do you have? Windows 7 pro, ultimate, and enterpise have built in system imaging.

Also, there is Easus ToDo Back up which can do images.

And if you want to cut down on junk check out my install and optimization guide in my sig. smile.gif

You could use Acronis or Ghost and make a 1:1 clone and restore that in cases of OS corruption.
