Windows Batman XP is a bootleg Windows XP SP2 edition, which was created by Ahmed Youssef. It released on November 21, 2009, and was added to the archive on December 14, 2021.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP2 ISO, which styles the OS after the famous superhero Batman, and also with a Windows 7 theme. It comes with many programs and themes, including some Sysinternals utilities. It comes with a RunOnceEx based program installer borrowed from Windows XP Cyrix Premium Edition. It comes with registry tweaks by Windows VistaInspirat.

The autorun has been replaced with a slightly modified version of the stock one.

It is unattended and preactivated. The bootleg was made using nLite.
