Suggestion for Removal from Win XP SP3 script
Posted 08 August 2012 - 08:32 AM
Have managed so far to just four folders each with a child folder holding all the update executables.
Once I got towards the end of the script arrived at the Tweaks section and got to thinking.
How many people still use this section in autopatcher....at a rough estimate only a few!!!!
I would therefore make a suggestion to remove this.
Your thoughts people, please

This should be also applied to the X64 apm also.....an observation that's all

I have doubts that a standalone installer will ever be released for 256.....I could be wrong however

Firstly DelMSJava...this thing is definitely ancient as Microsoft abandoned their Java project eons ago.
Secondly WinColorSetup.....not much to say on this one.
As usual thoughts on these would be appreciated

Agree with ViroMan about Microsoft Java - as long as people continue to use XP the requiremnt to uninstall Microsoft Java runtimes will remain. Is there no way to not show this item if Sun Java or other is installed?

OK - then is there any way to detect if Sun Java is installed and automatically uninstall Microsoft Java without any user input or notification?

Using the REG command line you can look for specific registry strings and if you find it run the msjava remover.
Also reading up on the MSJava from HERE It says that any XP disk that is SP1 or higher does not include MSjava. HOWEVER updating an existing pre sp1 to sp1 or higher will not remove the MSjava. I assume that slipstreaming an install disk will have the same effect.
So looking around... I can't seem to find any way to tell in the registry IF the MSJava is installed or not. the only thing I can think of is... installing an XP SP0, making an image, running the MSjava remove tool, then doing an image compare.

Move into MS security
DisableLMHash (EVERYONE should use this. Prevents fast LM attacks on your password. They have to do it the harder way. P.S. ALWAYS use passwords over 8 characters long)
Remove everything else.

I could have done a detection for MSJava for you.
