    What this program does 2 things.
    One, it creates an unattended install of Vista.
    The other (this is what you are after) it allows you to remove features from the OS.

    The nice thing about Windows (all flavors) is that the copy protection is the KEY. There is no other copy protection. You are free to copy the DVD and burn copys and do whatever you want with it.

    With this program you put your VISTA disk in the drive, and the program copies all the files to a folder on the hard drive. Then you run through the application telling it what you want to include and what you don't. The last step is it creates a disk image (it might even allow a DVD burn, I am not sure) of the new install disk for you.

    You then put that disk in your drive, cross your fingers and do the install.

    You will want to do a good backup before you do this. The application is free, it is in Beta and there is very little stopping you from yanking stuff out of the OS that you might need later on. That is the downside. All the power to include or delete features is up to you - even if it won't work out in the end.

    I am a big fan of there XP version - nLite.

    that feature you want to remove cannot be uninstalled.
    so the solution is not to install it in the first place.

    vLite is a software that will help you create a customized copy of the vista installation disk.
    you edit/customize that copy by removing what you don't want to be installed.
    then you burn that copy to a disk.
    then you use that disk to install vista.
