Nlite_screenOur Freeware of the Moment today comes from jkOTR forum moderator LiquidBlaze and is no doubt one of the most powerful utilities you will ever find.  nLite is a free program that lets you do a number of very useful things, as long as you are careful (mandatory warning).  nLite lets you remove Windows components that you don’t want installed on your system, such as Outlook Express, Media Player, etc., so they don’t take up precious resources.  But it doesn’t stop there- one of the most powerful features of nLite is the ability to burn your own Windows install CDs.  These install CDs can reflect any modifications you have made with nLite, so if you removed Outlook Express your Windows install disks will not install it in the future.  Cool, huh?  nLite is also perfect for slipstreaming Windows Service Packs into your new install CDs so any future installs will already have the SPs in place, saving you a lot of time updating your new install.  These install CDs can also incorporate all your specific Windows hardware drivers so you won’t have to go look for them in the future.  Very solid performer and there is an excellent support forum if you have questions you want to ask.  Excellent find, LB!

  1. Thanks for mentioning this piece of awesome software.

    You should however be advised that building a CD is no easy job. nLite certainly makes it a lot easier, but some things wont work if you dont install them.

    I believe that Outlook XP / 2003 wont work if you dont install OE. But netmeeting and other things can go.

    If you read the nLite forums you’ll find a great deal of information on what to delete and what to keep.

  2. The link to nlite seems to be requiring a login and password. Do you have another link that doesn’t require one? It looks like a decent tool and I’d like to check it out.

  3. Wow Perry, you’re right. This link worked last night when I was gathering information for this post. Apparently they have decided they don’t like publicity and I can find no way into either the site nor the forums at the present time. Maybe LiquidBlaze can get in touch with them and find out what it up. I don’t have contact info for them.

  4. LB has pointed out that the login screen implies system maintenance and a forum upgrade is taking place. Check back again later and see if it works.

  5. Thanks, jk. LB attempted to email me the RAR file, but my email server won’t allow “potentially dangerous” attachments. (I’d really prefer it let me decide what’s dangerous…) So I’ll keep trying the link.

  6. Another update… After posting my last comment I checked the site again and it is up and I got the software. Thanks!

  7. Yeah nLite is a kick ass software.
    My favorite proggy!
