Preferred Solution: Why Autounattend.xml remove these menu?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey it's been a while since I've last been here, I really enjoy this Win 7 community hope everyone is doing well.

Anyway let me cut to the chase, basically I want to be able to remove the MagicISO context menu from the right click context menu in Windows 7.

See pics to understand what I'm talking about.

Even after unchecking the "Enable Shell Integration" (see picture 3) option in MagicISO Maker, it still shows up, and when I open the program again the check box is still ticked for that particular option.

I know I never had any issue in Vista or XP, but in this version of Windows it seems unable to work.

I looked on the http://www.magiciso.com website for an update to the program but there doesn't seem to be any at the moment. I've got the latest Build 0281.

Call me a "control/neat/OCD freak" who wants and needs everything in his life to be almost perfect ! LOL but really, I just like my right click context menu to be nice and tidy. I don't use MagicISO that often and when I do I do all my work within the program. Therefore I don't need the MagicISO option to be present.

Anyway I hope my issue is clear, perhaps I would have to modify the registry or something ?

Thanks for all your help I appreciate it !

A:Unable to remove MagicISO context menu from right click menu in Win 7

Hello Jordan,

You can use either ShellExView or ShellMenuView to make disabling that context menu item easy.

Hope this helps,

Hi, all just want some help on why the Autounattend.xml file that I have attached is not working.
It is designed to simply generate a random computer name and join the computer to the relevant 2008-R2 active directory domain specified during the OOBE setup process.
I have placed it in the root of OS drive (Aka C:\) and specified it as follows:

sysprep.exe /oobe /shutdown /quiet /unattend:C:\Autounattend.xml
When I start the computer back up, it is neither on the domain nor is the computer name changed and randomnized. The domain user account specified in the Autounattend.xml has permissions to create and delete computer objects.
What is wrong with what I am doing?

Have Win XP Home Ed. 2002 SP3. Noticed I had 2 versions of Adobe Reader: 8.1.1 and 10. I wanted to remove the older 8.1.1 version, went to Control Panel > Add/Remove menu > highlighted Adobe Reader 8.1.1 > hit remove and got this message:

"this patch package could not be opened. Verify that this package patch exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vedor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package"

Then I saw on another similar post about using CCleaner to remove it. I went to Tools > highlighted Adobe Reader > clicked Run Uninstaller > got the exact same message as above.

What can I do next? Thank you for taking my concern.
 

A:Cannot Remove Adobe Reader 8.1.1 from Add/Remove Menu. Please Help!

Unfortunately, Adobe is notorious for leaving behind pieces of programs when it updates to a new version. You can check out Adobe forums and search on the reader forum, where likely many others have encountered your same problem. Some of the answers may be helpful.

Revo Uninstaller is an excellent uninstall program, and removes programs more completely than MS add/remove programs. It's free. Be careful in the advanced portions, that you don't delete an entry by mistake.

So I've been asked to research Win7 images and the best way to create and deploy them. We don't have MDT 2010 up yet, so I'm stuck using a custom install.wim along w/ the unattend.xml file.

Question #1

How can you stop Win7 OOBE welcome screen from making you create a local user account? After Win7 finishes its text based setup, I want it to boot into Windows as Admin bypassing the welcome screen (create user/change PC name). This way desktop support can -

1. Change the PC name
2. Join the domain, reboot, and be done
3. End user logs in, process complete

There is no need for them to do a Audit mode w/ reboot. The domain accounts already exist. I don't want local users being created.

In Win XP you could edit the sysprep.inf so that you had -

[GuiUnattended]
AutoLogon=Yes
AutoLogonCount=1

Which would allow you to log in as admin the first time after sysprep, join the domain, etc. How do you do this w/ Win7? I can only get it to log in as admin in systemAudit mode, I want to do it in OOBE.

Hopefully I just missed something. Like I said, I'm new to automating Win7 setup.

A:Windows 7 AutoUnattend.xml - User & PC Name

I was able to successfully solve this exact problem by looking at this website:

Sysprep a Windows 7 Machine

With the unattend.xml file that I have, it prompts for a PC name first thing, then creates the local administrator account and automatically logs in one time, joins to the domain via my JOINDOMAIN.VBS script, installs our AntiVirus program, installs out network management agent, and activates windows automatically with KMS. Then it ends by initiating a system reboot with a 10 minute timeout clock. That way if an admin has to leave the machine during the imaging process, it won't stay logged in to the local admin account. So what you are asking about is definitely possible. Just make sure your unattend.xml file is built correctly.

Hi!
I'm about to prepare some OEM computers and have made a simple unattend.xml-file with help from the answering file sample from WAIK, but I can't get it to work properly.

I have copied the file to the root directory of an USB drive and it seemes like the installation program is reading the file (e.g. I don't have to specify an computer name when finalizing the installation) but it's not as automated that I would like it to be. I have to choose wich Windows version to install (basic, HP etc.), the disk partitions listed in the xml-file is not automated (I have to choose wich drive to use for installation), I need to confirm the license agreement, choose date and time options.

What can be wrong? I would like a clean, working autounattend.xml-file that automatically installs and also temporarily activates the administrator account so I can install updates, drivers and such and then seal everything up with sysprep.

Can anyone help me with this?

A few things about this:
I never specify D:\Sources anywhere in my autounattend.xmlAuto

I was not planning on doing this with Sysprep, I was planning on dropping the autounattend.xml file directly on to the root of the USB drive and let it install the image automatically rather than booting through WDS or something similar.

I have been reading Windows 10 Image - Customize in Audit Mode with Sysprep - Windows 10 Forums in case sysprep is the absolutely best way though.

A:Is it possible to remove 'Cut' from Win 7 context menu?

Do you want this for all context menus or of some specific application? Many applications have a context menu with a cut entry and ultimately it is the application that controls their own context menus, usually with no options for customization. I don't see this as being a practical thing for general use. For a specific application - maybe.

A:Can anyone help me remove these context menu items?

One detail that would help is; where do you usually see this menu, the Desktop, Folders, Files, shortcuts?

What else is on it, can you post a snip of one?

You might have to rebuild them: New Context Menu - Remove & Restore Default Menu Items

Have you seen the other tutorials on context menus?
Scroll down a bit to where "context menus" start and see if any of them will help, the list goes into the next page: Windows 7 Tutorial Index | C

There is also the possibility of removing some of your list if you have CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download It might handle some of that.

Just be careful with it, you don't want to go pruning too much! This may help as a guide: CCleaner Tutorial ? How-To Geek Forums

OK, I got Ubuntu a couple of days ago, tested it and didn't like it, and now I need to remove it because the Ubuntu boot menu loads before my Windows 7 boot menu. I saw many threads before posting this, and didn't find something that would fit me. Some say use easyBCD, some say format the ubuntu partition from the windows disk management utility and so on. I need a correct method to remove it, because I don't have a windows 7 recovery disk, so if I mess anything up, I can't reformat my PC, and I don't want to reformat it, all I want is to uninstall ubuntu and have my PC running as before, but I thought it would have been easier than it actually is.

Any suggestions or other information I need to give, just tell me.

A:How to Remove Ubuntu Boot Menu.

I had a similar issue

I deleted the ubuntu partition and tried to repair boot using the windows disk. Start up repair did something and I performed it thrice. But still it did not do anything.
I had to start from scratch.

So Please dont even think of deleting the partition and repairing it using windows disc.
I don`t know about BCD.

I am sure other experienced users will guide you

Hello all. I am using MobyDock, which gives your windows a Mac like "kicker" and I've been using it now for about a week. I've found that I no longer need the defualt windows toolbar. Is there a way to actually remove it from the desktop (without just moving it to the side and minimizing it)? Also, if I remove it, what else can I do without? How bout system tray? Thanks!

I have Windows XP and Ubuntu Wubi on my PC, and Windows 7 on top of that.
Windows Xp is installed on C: and 7 is on another drive. I have formatted the drive on
which 7 was installed. But I still get the 7 boot menu at boot. Then after selecting
"Earlier version of windows", I get the XP boot menu.

I want to remove the 7 boot menu. I think the 7 MBR is installed on C:, so it is not removed.

A:How to Remove Windows 7 boot menu

In XP run msconfig>Boot to delete any Win7 listing.
