Transistor – From the Makers of Bastion

One of my favorite games of all times was a game name Bastion that came out a few years ago.   Their next game comes out on May 20th and I could not be more excited.   This game will be available on PS4 and Steam.   I will be purchasing day one on Steam or maybe pre-ordering.  Check out the trailer:

Powershell – Check All Group Objects for Managed by Update Check Box

I am using the Quest AD tools but the qad commands could be changed to use the native AD commands. This was created to look for the checkbox in Active Directory Users and Computers named: Manager Can Update Membership List just under the managed by on the group object.

$file = “C:\Workspace\groupslist.txt”
$groups = Get-qADGroup * -sizelimit 0
foreach ($item in $groups)
{
write-host “Checking AD Group: “$item.name
if ($item.ManagedBy -ne $null) {
$check = Get-qadpermission $item -rights WriteProperty -account $item.ManagedBy -SchemaDefault
$fullline = ($item.name + “|” + $check.rights + “|” + $item.ManagedBy + “|” + $item.GroupType + “|” + $item.Description )
Add-Content $file $fullline
}
}

VGX.DLL Unregister Workaround for SCCM(2963983)

I am sure by now most people have heard of the IE all version vulnerability.   If you have not spend some time here.  Word on the street is the fix may not be around for several months so a workaround is in order.  I did not want to disable Flash(how would users waste time all day), so the next best thing is unregistering the VGX.DLL.   I put together a quick VBscript that can be imported into SCCM(all versions) and deployed to all Windows versions Servers/Workstations.    I know MS recommends doing this through GPO but I want some reporting on the change and have the ability to re-trigger on my schedule.

On a 64bit Windows OS the script unregisters the 32bit and 64bit VGX.dll.

On a 32bit Windows OS the script unregisters the 32bit VGX.dll.

The script can be run on all Windows systems in your environment, so far I have tested on 2008,2008r2,2003 and Windows 7.
