Hi,

I am a network manager, and I need to access users control panels remotely
to remove unauthorised software. I do not want the user to know I am doing
this, so remote access tools are not an option.
I have tried running the control.exe from their mapped c drive, but it opens
my own!
I cannot add an mmc snap in and sms will only uninstall with specific
uninstall files. I have hundreds of applications to remove.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Regards,

Sinéad

Normally, you should be "locking: down the possibility of installing
applications with a group policy for normal user accounts. You will only
allow "administrator" the possibility of installing programs. This way you
do not have this problem.

That's fair enpugh, but the reality is that I DO have this problem and would
like to know how I can remotely access the control panel!
