Looking for Windows 10 bench/performance/clean version

Looking for a tool/program to tweak/clean Windows 10 Pro 64bit and essentially make a bare essentials stripped down daily//performance/bench OS like I did before when overclocking and benchmarking on socket 775, 939 and 1366. Made real clean versions of XP, Vista , 7 (and slightly trimmed 8) since there was tools where you could truly remove large parts of the OS and add in your own things. Have yet to have that opportunity with 10, as I have simply not found the right tools.

Also interested already tweaked/cleaned Windows 10's. Not sure if some of you remember TinyXP and Tiny7 (and similar)? They where stripped and cleaned of pretty much everything, then with some tools I made them even slimmer and the results where fantastic both for daily and benching. Whole computer got more performance and felt much snappier overall. As Windows 10 is the most bloated OS i have ever used, and it would be nice to have a proper clean version.

Any tips on how to reach my goal of having a proper Windows 10 without bloatware, telemetry, performance degrading or otherwise unnecessary things would be highly welcome. Have not done anything like this for a few years other than what I felt was needed to have a decent experience (basic cleaning and smaller tweaks), yet with 10 it is so bad that my inner "scrubber" truly wishes to see the light of day again hehe

for remove all bloatwares, I use this great tool:
https://klocmansoftware.weebly.com


for telemetry try this:
https://www.safer-networking.org/pro...t-anti-beacon/

you can easily find on the web how to permanently disable windows defender if you wish.

and to stop windows to install crapware again after every update, type regedit and search this path:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/ContentDeliveryManager/SilentInstalledAppsEnabled = 0

WinToolKit is great for creating your own personalized install media allowing you to strip and modify it as you see fit. I'd recommend grabbing VMWare player as well so you can test the images you create.

Thanks! Will check that tool out.
Have already used that Spybot antibeacon, along will disabled Defender.

Thanks for the regedit thing, that should come in handy.

Thank you. Think this might be the updated version of a tool I used back with Win7. Very nice!

Will check this out properly later, and hopefully get a much cleaner and snappier OS.

Ended up with NTLite, a good tool for sure.
