    Just created a new de-bloated ISO for Windows 10 Build 1903

    No Windows Defender, No System Restore, No Cortana, None of the useless Windows Store and system apps, no smart screen defender, integrated DirectX 9, .NET 3.5, Win32 Calculator (from Windows 7), activated the old Windows Photo Viewer, and lots of other tweaks

    I left Telemetry though because removing Telemetry will break the Microsoft Store

    quick question.. why is .NET 3.5 installer a must-have? I've seen it in other tweak utilities too.

    Some programs still need it and if it wasn't present they won't run thus we always include it

    Are Windows Updates completely disabled? I was reading that all of the things that are removed (System Apps I think) will be added back after windows updates take place. If they are not, do you know of the best method to disabling them or point me in the direction of where I can find that info?

    Follow the guide. There is a part there where it say O&O Shut up 10 also you can use Windows Update Blocker and Windows Privacy DashBoard.
    Edit:
    I think Ultra Male doesn't disable/remove windows update totally which is why he has the O&O Shutup 10 in the guide. ^_^

    I read that too but I installed the OS, updated Windows manually as it was a clean install and the base OS is the first release version XXXX.30 so I used the manual download links and installed them

    Then I did all my tweaks

    Installed all drivers

    then logged in to OneDrive, then to the Microsoft Store (ensuring to choose Sign in to Microsoft Apps only so that Windows doesn't convert my local account to a Microsoft Account for the Windows login).

    None of the old stuff that were removed was back. Don't ask me how but it is what it is.

    I also did run Windows update, it only found a few driver updates and that was that.

    Here is the full update list and installation order for new installs:

    1) SSU (Servicing Stack Update) KB4515530 = http://download.windowsupdate.com/c..._572b7f6f7d1a35235af602b277ed367b3aa34747.msu

    4) Adobe Flash Player Update KB4503308 = http://download.windowsupdate.com/c..._b6478017674279c8ba4f06e60fc3bab04ed7ae02.msu
