Windows Deployment tools

Just been into my Absolute Uninstaller, and noticed that Windows has installed...
Windows Deployment Tools on 24/1/2014
and
Windows PE x86 x64 wims
What are they? What do they do?

Probably happened when you re-installed Avast, I guess Avast uses them to create its bootable rescue disk.

Re: Windows Deployment tools

Windows PE might be a similar thing to BartPE - a kind of windows system that isn't windows but will suffice in an emergency to get the job done as it were.
I never touched BartPE myself but it did look interesting.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
