MLS Desktop Started Tasks

Postby pete_arnett-p40 » Fri Nov 19, 2010 10:16 am

Do we need any additional started tasks on a MLS desktop except for the following:

=======================================================
From CCleaner 3.00.1310
---------------
1) HKLM:Run IntelAPMClient "C:\Program Files\LANDesk\LDClient\amclient.exe" /apm /s /ro /Retry=2 /Tspan=60 /Rstart
2) HKLM:Run SDClientMonitor "C:\Program Files\LANDesk\LDClient\webportal\sdclientmonitor.exe"
3) HKLM:Run SCFTrayStartUp C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Client Firewall\SCFTray.exe
4) Startup Common AutoUpdate Monitor.lnk C:\Program Files\Sophos\AutoUpdate\ALMon.exe

I'm surprised there's any iTunes on this machine.

These check for updates to Adobe Reader and Java. If the computer is connected to the Internet, I'd let them run. Older versions of these programs is a security vulnerability.

iTunes started task shows up after you install Apple Quick Time

You have a good point, it appears that the MLS LANDesk desktop staff are not deploying updates for common third party software like the FHC LANDesk desktop staff are doing

Happy turkey day

The FHC LANDesk folks may be pushing MS Updates, and they are pushing updates to FamilyHistory programs, but I don't think they've been pushing updates to the third party programs that get attacked.
