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.
Thank you to http://www.petri.co.il/disable_writing_to_usb_disks_in_xp_sp2_with_gpo.htm

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.

Advanced File Delete Script

By | October 27, 2006

I saw a Power Shell script recently and it showed how to delete all files recursively for a HD.
Well, I really don't know Power Script and I don't want to change from VBScript.
So, I figured that I should make a script in VBScript that could do the same thing.
This script could be useful to remove .mp3 files or the like from your file server.
WARNING!!! YOU CAN DELETE IMPORTANT SYSTEM FILES IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL!!!

So, go ahead and run this on you Domain Controller!!! Just Kidding!!!

Seiko Smart Label Printer Fix

By | October 25, 2006

Where I work we sell a lot of Seiko Smart Label Printers to customers.
We have recently found out that the new version (6.0.7) of the software breaks the label printers functionality.
We have contacted Seiko and their answer is to go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the software.
Great, but one problem! If you try to install an older version of the software the printer functionality is still broken.
So, with a little digging I discovered that the Seiko uninstaller leaves "junk" all over your computer.
My script will remove the "junk" and allow you to install an older version of the Seiko driver that works.

Monitor and Start Process

By | October 13, 2006

Making my job easier through scripting is becomming a passion of mine.
I love to find problems that I can write a script for and then sit back and let the script do the work.
This script will list all running process and write tham to a text file.
Then it will search for a defined process in the file.
If the process doesn't exist, the script will start the app!

 ***This script has just been edited. In case you don't want to use a text file, I have created an array to perform the same function. It is a little faster!

Process Monitor And Killer

By | October 6, 2006

It's me again… Ho,Hum… I have a user who likes to run games on his computer instead of doing his work.
I found a couple of scripts online and joined them together. This script will monitor a specified computer
and if a defined process starts, the script will kill it.
You could also run this as a logon script by replacing
This:  strComputer = InputBox("Enter the name of the target computer here!")
With this: strComputer = "."
