Windows Vista and Windows 7 Common Cleanup Operations Checklist

In this post i will write a checklist of common operations i do after clean installation of Windows Vista or Windows 7 (the most are not recommeded by Bill):

1. disable UAC (User Account Control)

2. disable System Protection on all disks

3. delete all Tasks except Registry Backup Task

Delete all folders contained in:
C:\Windows\system32\Tasks [for 32 and 64 bit systems] (do not delete the folder Microsoft\Windows\Registry it’s the registry backup, it’s important to recover a corrupted registry)
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Tasks [for 64 bit only]

4. [OPTIONAL] disable Task Scheduler Service (doing this genarates an error when installing Office 2016)

It cannot be disabled with services.msc, but only via registry: locate HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Schedule and change the Start value from 2 to 4

5. disable Windows Search / Indexing

Control Panel >> Programs and Features >> Turn Windows features on and off and uncheck Windows Search

6. disable Automatic Defragmentation Service

Run services.msc and disable “Disk Defragmenter” service

7. cleanup msconfig

8. enable telnet client

Control Panel >> Programs and Features >> Turn Windows features on and off and check telnet client
