Yes, the live update has been removed in this version and from what I've read in the nlite Forums, it probably won't be added again.

Found these on another site. Some of these are well known, others are not.
Quote:
  • bootcfg (XP only)
    This utility allows you to set up your boot options, such as your default OS and other loading options.
  • cacls (XP, 2000, & NT4.0)
    Changes the ACLs (security Settings) of files and folders. Very similar to chmod in Linux.

    This utility is very similar to diff in Linux. Use the /? switch to get examples of command usage.
  • contig (NT4.0 and newer)
    A great defrag utility for NTFS partitions.
  • defrag (XP only - NT4.0 and Win2k use contig)
    Yes, XP comes with a command line disk defrag utility. If you are running Win2k or NT4.0 there is still hope. Contig is a free defrag program that I describe on the defrag page.
  • diskpart (XP only)
    Use this command to manage your disk partitions. This is the text version for the GUI Disk Manager.
  • driverquery (XP only)
    Produces a list of drivers, their properties, and their versions. Great for computer documentation.

  • msconfig (XP only)
    The ultimate tool to change the services and utilities that start when your Windows machine boots up. You can also copy the executable from XP and use it in Win2k.
  • netsh (XP & 2000)
    A network configuration tool console. At the 'netsh>' prompt, use the '?' to list the available commands and type "exit" to get back to a command prompt.
  • openfiles (XP Only)
    Allows an administrator to display or disconnect open files in XP professional. Type "openfiles /?" for a list of possible parameters.
  • Pathping (XP & 2000)
    A cross between the ping and traceroute utilities. Who needs Neotrace when you can use this? Type "pathping <ip address>" and watch it go.
  • recover (XP & 2000)
    This command can recover readable information from a damaged disk and is very easy to use.

  • systeminfo (XP only) <----- very nice one!!!!!!!!!!!
    Basic system configuration information, such as the system type, the processor type, time zone, virtual memory settings, system uptime, and much more. This program is great for creating an inventory of computers on your network.
  • tasklist (XP only)
    Tasklist is the command console equivalent to the task manager in windows.

Again, major digg effect going on here but this is a must program to have for any space/astronomy buff.

http://celestia.sourceforge.net/

The link below is directly to the sourcforge download link page, not being hit as hard as the link above.
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/c...0.exe?download

Play around with the settings, amazing piece of software.

Welcome to Celestia
... The free space simulation that lets you explore our universe in three dimensions. Celestia runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

Unlike most planetarium software, Celestia doesn't confine you to the surface of the Earth. You can travel throughout the solar system, to any of over 100,000 stars, or even beyond the galaxy.

All movement in Celestia is seamless; the exponential zoom feature lets you explore space across a huge range of scales, from galaxy clusters down to spacecraft only a few meters across. A 'point-and-goto' interface makes it simple to navigate through the universe to the object you want to visit.

Celestia is expandable. Celestia comes with a large catalog of stars, galaxies, planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and spacecraft. If that's not enough, you can download dozens of easy to install add-ons with more objects.

For the ultimate Bible study software, try The Sword Project:

http://crosswire.org/sword/software/index.jsp

To be able to download and read thousands of Project Gutenberg's books, install eLibrary:

http://elibrary.en.softonic.com/ie/45618

If you run Linux, go the the crosswire.org mainpage for the Gnome Sword. All are freeware.

About Bootvis.exe
Bootvis.exe is a performance tracing and visualization tool that Microsoft designed to help PC system designers and software developers identify performance issues for boot/resume timing while developing new PC products or supporting software.

Please note that Bootvis.exe is not a tool that will improve boot/resume performance for end users.
Imbroglio, I'm not saying the tool isn't useful. It just seems like you may not be fully aware of its purpose.
