looking for software to make the same changes to several PCs

By ckimball ·
I'm looking for some soft of software, free or otherwise, that I can make the same change to several PCs at once.

basic tasks like:
-changing screen savers
-versions of installed software
-create a restore point for all PCs
-set up an auto defrag at Sunday at 4 am

things like that, I'm not sure if it exists, or where to look.

Kix or Desktop Authority

by bart777 In reply to looking for software to m ...

If you like writing scripts you could use Kix32. ( You could write pieces of a script to do each of these things that you are trying to do.

If you DON'T like writing scripts then you could use a program like Desktop Authority. IT actually uses KIX in the background but allows you to set everyting up in a GUI.

Best of luck

Changing screen savers can be accomplished by GPO. Installation of software can be done by GPO, SMS, Tivoli etc. You can set up scheduled tasks for restore points and defraging.

Restore is a no no

Restore points are a waste. Don't use them. Have users back up important data on external media or on a server that's backed up.
