well first of wall watch out with Lite Vista cause after you make it Lite you are not able to install all the updates from microsoft and also SP1.when you make the Vista Lite include in it the Sp1 cause you wont be able to do it after.

That's not quite true. The latest version of vLite can integrate SP1 into the vista image for you and regular updates have no problem installing. The things to remove / not remove are pretty much self explanitory. The only thing to definately not remove as it will break windows update is WinSxS which you can only see with the -extreme command added to the target field of the vlite shortcut.

Just remove stuff you know you'll never use or use some third party software to do the same thing better. Here is a list of the stuff I remove:

* Accessibility, Disk Cleanup, Mobility Center, Paint, Speech Support, System Information, Weclome Center, Wordpad

* All Bundled Drivers (I integrate my own needed ones with vLite)

* Games & Games Explorer

* Fax Support & Modem Support

* All Foreign Languages

* Media Center, Movie Maker, Music & Video Samples, Sample Pictures, Slideshow, Sound Recorder, Windows Calendar, Windows Photo Gallery

* Connect to Network Projector, Remote Desktop & Assistance, Remote Desktop Client, Windows Collaboration, Windows Firewall, Windows Mail

* Computer Browser, Distributing Link Tracking Client, Error Reporting, Offline Files, Remote Registry, Secondary Logon

* Disk Defragmenter, Disk Quota, Help, Manual Install, Microsoft Agent, Natural Language, Parental Controls, Security Center, System Restore, Tablet PC, Windows Backup, Windows Defender, Windows Easy Transfer

Everything runs fine for me removing all this although my vista takes a bit more than 3.5GB installed due to the winsxs folder.
