Hey all!

So I came across a Windows 10 custom ISO that has a lot of the bloatware and other stuff removed, goes by the name of Ghost Spectre. Having done some initial research seems to look pretty legit. In that it only removes a lot of the bloaty stuff that comes with windows.

Anyone had any experience with this?

Why not a REAL Windows 10, and YOU remove the stuff you don't want?

I certainly wouldn't go with this 'lite' thing.
What is in there you don't know about?

I feel like it's a lot harder to remove a lot of the "built in" stuff that is pretty hardwired in there. You can continue to update and everything on this version, it just seems like a lot of the background bloaty stuff is removed.

"What is in there you don't know about? "

What do you mean? Thanks :)

They removed stuff. Nothing you can't do on your own, and likely doesn't help anything anyway.

Did they add anything? Malware, keyloggers, etc...
Oh, it also has a significantly smaller file footprint. Oh I see what you mean, its pretty popular, haven't seen anything in regards to that, but you are right.

How would I go about getting a lot of the stuff out myself?

Don't download questionable installs like that. They could have loaded in stuff you do not want.

Get a legitimate Windows 10, install it, and remove the excess stuff yourself.

A lot of this work can be done via powershell, some can be done elsewhere simply by uninstalling programs in settings.
