This week we got a question from Mark: “Hi Steve, I just inherited a network of about 50 computers. I noticed that many of them have all kinds of shared folders. I am trying to do some cleanup and lock-down. Wondering if you have a nice script to remove all shares, except the administrative shares […]


I got a question from Lewis this week: “I hope this email finds you well. I have a plotter here at my company, and the driver is really temperamental. At least twice a week the driver crashes, and then all of the jobs get stuck in the spooler. To fix it I need to stop […]

We have been working hard on the new version of IntelliAdmin Remote Control. Some things that will be in the new version: Screen scaling – The client will automatically shrink the view to fit the screen within the window. With huge resolutions, you no longer are forced to constantly scroll around Alpha Capture Disable – […]


Since 2000 every version of Windows uses object reuse protection. When you create a file, the space on the hard drive for that file will be zeroed out. Another way of looking at this is when a file is created, Windows will make it impossible to see what was there before. But what about right […]


I have quite a few scripts that are run by task scheduler on my server.  One of the ways I track the results is by writing to a text file in a common share. After a while this can become a little ridiculous to follow. Recently I discovered that it is possible to create your […]
