Viewing installed applications across clients
Just wondered if any of you out there have come across a similar problem...
I have just moved into a new role and want to know what programs my users have installed on their pcs, as I suspect there are games and stuff that shouldn't be there and want to crack down on it.
Our Head Office insists on a piece of security software that stops any folders from being shared and also prevents writing to USB/CD/Floppy Disks, so this rules out checking c$/program files.
Thinking of adding something to a login script to show me the directory listing and save to a text file of program files?
Any suggestions on this, please? Obviously I don't want it to be evident that the pc has been checked and reported back (and I don't intend on visiting the station if I can avoid it!!)
And as for the access for installing stuff, GPOs are currently being tested!
