The linked MS page on "sysprep /generalize" states that "all unique system information is removed from the Windows installation. The security ID (SID) resets, any system restore points are cleared, and event logs are deleted.", which doesn't sound like something I want. I want my installed programs to remain in the registry etc., and I'd really like to be able to at least keep some sort of restore, though that may not be so necessary if things end up working well.
This mostly worked, fortunately, except that there are a couple of pieces of Gigabyte software that won't uninstall, and, the part that's more bothersome, in the last several days MS's Security Essentials "update" boofed my old install, and I've been trying to uninstall the old version and get the new one to install in various ways, so far unsuccessfully. So I figured this might be a good time to try the sysprep part, though I'm sure it won't fix the actual problem with msse. But at least it may make life somewhat less annoying during all the services being stopped and attempts to delete files which keep regenerating.
