With XPlite and 2000lite we give YOU the power to set up YOUR machine the way YOU want! The power to remove unwanted features, the power to remove upgrades that go bad, the power to strip potential security and privacy threats out by the roots.
Microsoft locked Windows away from you...
...We have the keys:XPlite and 2000lite Professional
More than a powerful configuration utility - XPlite and 2000lite give you amazing control to repair Windows as well. If a particular technology gives you trouble you can completely remove it, and then reinstall it as cleanly as the day Windows was first installed on your computer.
The ultimate security system? There can be little argument that certain Microsoft technologies have proven themselves to put your privacy, security and system stability at risk. The sheer number of Windows Update security fixes that are released on an almost daily basis testify to this fact. You can choose alternate technologies to avoid the security risks, yet the flawed components remain on your system unused, until the next irresponsible hacker or malicious script takes advantage of the situation. Everybody should be running with the latest patches and Service Packs - but is this enough? XPlite and 2000lite allow you to completely remove features that might put you at risk. For example - many email viruses use Outlook Express and the Windows Address Book to invade your privacy and that of your friends whose addresses you have stored. If you choose to use an alternate email system then XPlite and 2000lite allow you to totally remove Outlook Express and the Windows Address Book from your system. Now you know you are protected!
Windows YOUR WAY!
Modular by design! - What comes out, goes back in! Each uninstaller is coupled with an equally powerful installer so you can recover uninstalled components as easy as ticking a check box.
New! For our business customers we now offer batch and unattended configuration of multiple workstations from CDROM or network media (v 1.2 upwards). Managing and configuring new and existing systems to reconfigure the operating system featureset has never been easier.
A Smaller Footprint Windows!
The latest developments in XPLite now see clean installations of Windows XP in under 350MB and Windows 2000 approaching less than 200 MB (excluding paging file) with much smaller memory requirements! These sizes are obtained simply by running XPLite/2000Lite on a fresh install of windows. Enterprising developers should easily be able to strip out additional log files, INF files and unused drivers to reduce the footprint by another 50MB or so. If your goal is to run a dedicated task in as little storage as possible - then look no further than XPlite.
If your needs are for a smaller OS, then ask yourself if you really need Windows XP or Windows 2000. We can fit a Windows 9x OS into a 16MB flash chip and most solutions fit readily onto a 32MB chip. Check out Embedded Windows 9x.
This first gold release is a massive boost to your ability to add and remove features from windows. We are actively developing further customization of more advanced core windows features along with some shell enhancements. These will appear in upcoming versions that will be FREE for all our licensed customers. We are not done yet!

COOL!!! We ran a poll and determined that many people were happy to give up on Windows File Protection (WFP) if it means they can unlock and customise the OS. Well.... YOU DONT HAVE TO!!. You do have to disable WFP using XPlite and 2000lite - but afterwards you can re-activate WFP and even scan for missing or modified files! XPlite and 2000lite Professional integrate with Windows so that whatever you choose to leave behind remains fully protected.
Windows 2000 and Windows XP have a "technology" called Windows File Protection that is designed to prevent deletion and overwriting of known versions of the system files with other versions and thus prevents Windows from being destabilised. This is a good thing if you never want to change or remove protected components.
Naturally if we are to remove system components that Microsoft doesn't allow us to remove then we have to first deactivate WFP. So we made a switch so you can turn it on and off at will.
