Script to delay Trend Update
We sometimes have 20 or so wireless laptops logging on all at the same time and it's quite slow when Trend updates the pattern and also the engine.
I very much doubt other schools use Trend and if they do have similar problems, but if they do - this quick script may help.
You need to set the TMListen service to manual, [ stop it first ] and have this running as part of your logon script.
Also you need to change the LOCAL_ADMIN_PASSWORD to your local admin password for the PC / Laptop as you need admin rights to start the service.
When run it will delay the start of the tmlisten service between 5 to 20 mins - then it will start - any updates needed will then take place.
This speeds up the logon service for us quite a bit.
