Write Protect Removable Storage

By | July 27, 2007

I just implemented the USB.ADM group policy option to disable USB removable devices on my network.
Then it caused a problem! You're not able to access digital cameras.
So I searched the Web and found a way to disable writing to USB removable drives.

Combine multiple text files

By | July 17, 2007

An engineer asked me to create a script that would take ASCII files and combine them for use with a piece of software. The names of the files were all different, and they needed to sort the data by creation/ modification date. So, I created the script below with a little help from the Windows Script Repository.

Uninstall Microsoft Products Silently

By | July 6, 2007

I've been gone due to changing jobs. I no longer get the pleasure to work with the Lazy Network Admin.
But, the scripts must go on! This script should be run as a logon script and it will remove MS Project silently from a computer.
Whats good about this script is that you can modify it a bit and remove any software with a silent switch!
Give it a try. I hope it helps you out.
