  ' Before finalizing the image perform the following tasks: 
  ' - Ensure no unwanted startup files by using autoruns.exe from SysInternals 
  ' - Run the Disk Cleanup tool as administrator and delete all temporary files and system restore points (can be automated with this script) 
  ' - Run disk defrag and consolidate free space: defrag c: /v /x 
  ' - Reboot the machine 6 times and wait 120 seconds after logging on before performing the next reboot (boot prefetch training) 
  ' - Run disk defrag and optimize boot files: defrag c: /v /b 
  ' - If using a dynamic virtual disk, use the vendor's utilities to perform a "shrink" operation
