    Angry Tempus application hiding "C:" references on server

    Hi all,

    We have a Tempus configured server with some custom software of theirs, one piece of which is used to hide references to local drives from text boxes. Any idea what this is called and how to remove it? It's screwing up viewing event logs and installing software on the server. I can see why it would be useful on clients, but it's just overkill for the DC.

    Apologies if this is the wrong forum, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone else hasn't encountered this software too.

    Thanks for your help!

    Just to be clear, this isn't the "Hide Drives" registry entry; This clears the contents of any window with "C:" in it, including event log entries.

    I don't have Tempus servers any more (hooray!) but I recall that their software was kicked off at startup. Check msconfig and you should find it.

    Thanks for your response. I've already checked msconfig for startup entries and services, and I can't find anything I don't recognise (which would have flagged my suspicions anyway).

    This would be posted as an edit, but I've found the offending app. It's called TempOpen.exe. It's loaded by the user logon script in their AD profile.
