Update to Caffeine for Receiver

Caffine 2Just a quick note to say I’ve finally updated Caffeine for Receiver to support receiver 4.2.

I had neglected to update this tool for a while, until I actually needed it and the remote screen saver annoyed the hell out of me. necessity is the mother of product maintenance it seems!

Anyway, I digress, check the original blog post here for the downloads and configuration options.

In other news, if you’re familiar with ThreadLocker, watch this space, it’s about to get a serious overhaul!

PS: stop asking me for a mac client, it’s not possible as there is no ICA SDK / API for mac.

how to disable Abobe Flash on a per user basis:

Had a requirement recently to disable flash on a user by user basis in our published desktop environment, this key wasnt readily available on the internet so here it is for anyone else wishing to do the same:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExtSettings{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000}]
"Flags"=dword:00000001
"Version"="*"

Removing Sav 10 without the password.

I kinda liked this software, bulky yet light, ugly yet lovely. Either way, the powers that be (ugghhh) have instructed me to remove sav, and install Etrust. T

here was a password on sav and not everybody knows it. So i decided to script up a quick tool to remove SAV without actually having to enter the password, or, well, do anything!

reg query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall | find “{5A633ED0-E5D7-4D65-AB8D-53ED43510284}”
Echo %errorlevel%
goto answer%errorlevel%

:answer0
echo program had code 0
reg add HKLMSOFTWAREINTELLANDeskVirusProtect6CurrentVersionAdministratorOnlySecurity /v LockUnloadServices /t REG_DWORD /D 0 /F
reg add HKLMSOFTWAREINTELLANDeskVirusProtect6CurrentVersionAdministratorOnlySecurity /v UseVPUninstallPassword /t REG_DWORD /D 0 /F
MsiExec.exe /norestart /qn /x{5A633ED0-E5D7-4D65-AB8D-53ED43510284} REMOVE=ALL
exit

:answer1
echo program not installed
exit

The bold text above is the registry key that controls whether or not to use the password, nice security there symantec. :P
