    New Windows 7 Image for pupil PC

    I was just after some New idea's

    Other than the usual software (office, adobe suite, ccleaner, AV, Audacity, etc)

    What do you usually put on a Windows 7 image?
    or is there anything you lock down locally on the machine?

    before deployment.

    thanks

    As well as yours shown, VLC goes on ours, along with Foxit (no Adobe Reader here unless absolutely necessary). Our IT suites have every subject's software (license permitting) then individual suites contain subject specific software.

    Nothing,

    I have finally stopped us having to use images. They are just a pain to setup, take too much time, and if you missed something you have to recreate the image and then re-image all the machines. You also have issues with driver so either it fails or you have to create a image for every type of machine

    The server has GPO and GPP for all your modding needs.

    Then install WDS and MDT and start deploying from the network.

    When i first started here they said we need to make a registry change on all machines and install all these programs. Go round to them all with these cd's.
    I quickly told them to get on their bike and showed them how to work the server properly.
