Jack since this is the Windows XP/NT/2000/2003 that narrows it down a bit.

From reviewing past post from this member I can tell you they are running XP SP2

Oh Boy......that was a silly question as you are already in the XP / W2K forum. Sorry !

Ok.....I have just finished doing this for myself...... with a little help from others here at BC.

First you will have to download a little program called nLite. This allows you to remove anything from your OS. It's called "Slimming Down".
Here is a link to Slimming & Slipstreaming using the nLite program. This allows you to "Slipstream" XP's SP2 or W2K's SP4 into a single file you can copy & burn onto a bootable CD. This is a great way of saving time and more importantly hard drive space when installing a freash copy of your OS.

Here is another link to making a Slipstreamed CD an Unattend install
The neat thing about these programs is you will also be able to insert your CD Key and other apps to install automatically too. Something I've been looking for for a little while now and have only recently come across it.

Have fun.

WMP player can be removed by using the add/remove program function in the Settings folder.
Removing IE is not advisable because it is part of the operating system, and it's total removal will make your computer inoperable.
