Wintoys, that lets you tweak, customize, optimize Windows, now skips SYSTEM scheduled tasks

Windows enthusiasts and power users are always looking at ways to tweak, customization, or de-bloat the operating system to their liking. One of the popular utilities which lets users automate debloated and streamlined Windows images is tiny11 builder. The app's latest update now adds support for ESD files in addition to WIM.

Wintoys, which is another popular such application, has also received a steady stream of updates lately. The most recent version of the app now skips SYSTEM account scheduled tasks. The SYSTEM account is like the OS' own account and helps Windows run its various processes and services.

Besides that, the new release also fixes an issue related to loading corrupted scheduled tasks.
