Open the Windows Registry Editor on the client machine.
Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value.
The NAME is the file path to the driver \application that you want to exclude, for example if you are excluding the Skype application:
For 64 bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe
For 32 bit: C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe
The Value data is 0 (zero)
Restarting the application or the machine may be required for the change to take effect.
The application specified in the registry entry name will be excluded from protection by Lumension Endpoint Security.
You can of course automate this task by running something like this:
:: Set the file you would like to exclude
SET EXCLUSION="C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe"
REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\sk\Parameters" /v %EXCLUSION% /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
Have you recently replaced your motherboard and now you cannot use your Windows Hello Pin? Try logging in with an Administrator account and deleting everything inside of the following directory:
That should clear your PIN and allow you to create a new one in Settings > Accounts > Sign-in Options.
I apologize that I haven’t posted anything new in a few days. I have been busy learning Powershell! In the mean time, here is another helpful FTP script.
The following script will echo the current user’s SID:
FOR /F "tokens=2" %%a in ('whoami /user /fo table /nh') do SET SID=%%a
The following script will echo any user’s SID that you typed in:
SET /P USERNAME_PROFILE="Enter the username here: "
reg query "HKLM\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\profilelist" /s >>reg_sid.txt
findstr /n /i %USERNAME_PROFILE% reg_sid.txt>>sid_number.txt
for /f "tokens=1 delims=:" %%i in (sid_number.txt) do set line_num=%%i
set /a line_num=%line_num% - 2
for /f "skip=%line_num% tokens=7 delims=\" %%i in (reg_sid.txt) do set sid=%%i & goto :continue
for /f "tokens=* delims= " %%A in ('echo %SID%') do set SID=%%A
ECHO %USERNAME_PROFILE%'s SID is: %SID%
