    If you customize your install image with Sysprep, you can set those in answer file's OEM Information component, see highlighted lines:

    Tnx. Kari but as I said, it's only temporary until I get my Ryzen MB back from RMA. It wouldn't run on this MB since there's no UEFI. I saved last state I had on that MB so I'll revert to it hopefully very soon. Had to do same thing with W7 and Mint. All are just temporary clean installs.

    An easier way to do this after installation is to simply use this option in Winaerotweker:

    In what way is it easier than doing the same with registry Editor?

    I have never understood why some users use these "tweakers" to do something that can so easily be done without any third party "tool".

    It might be that you running your tweaker, browsing to correct place and writing new info takes a second, maybe even two less than me doing the same by running Registry Editor, browsing to correct place and writing the same, but as far as I am concerned, that's not reason enough to download and install a third party tool. In both cases you still have to type what you want.

    Perhaps we are not as comfortable editing the registry as you Kari.

    But you are comfortable with letting a third party application access and edit registry for you?

    The vast majority of people don't have the knowledge that you have and prefer not to mess with the registry, for them it is much easier to use programs like these

    Yes, provided it has a good rep.

    Regarding third party registry cleaners, as far as I know CCleaner has the best reputation. Yet, even some CCleaner users have reported it totally screwing up Windows.

    Yes, I know that it must be an exception, those stories are not even close as common as stories from satisfied users who use it or other unnecessary snake-oil tools. When used correctly it does no harm, no good, no space saved, no boot time made shorter, nothing. Be it medicine or computers, placebo effect is powerful, I accept that and fully understand that some users could not live without a few cleaners and tweakers installed.

    I'm just saying that I would never trust a third party app to do something which Windows is totally capable to do by itself, or I am able to do it with a few mouse clicks.

    Or the effects are reversible. If I have a good recommendation for direct registry changes, sure, I'd use that first. Some Registry settings change from build to build and good customizing programs like Winaero Tweaker will refuse to change something that is not compatible.
    PS.
    I don't count Ccleaner and such as "Tweakers".

    I don't use registry cleaners either (or at least not often ). In any case I always have a recent MR image (< 24h old) if anything goes awry.
