  1. SCCM

    SCCM has been redesigned with Windows 10 and Office 365 Consoles. I don't like being forced to use these consoles! We currently have Windows 7 and Office 2013 installs that we support as well as Windows 10 and Office 365. Until these new consoles were FORCED upon us, Everything on my SCCM server was the same and easy for my people to follow and understand. Now Office 365 and Office 2013 updates are different, windows 7 and windows 10 updates are different. This causes confusion for my people! The Root folder in Software Updates is named "All Software Updates", yet…

  2. DPM - AN absolutely worthless product

    I would like to see the Microsoft developers get off of their lazy @#$#@ and improve the DPM server. I am being forced to use a product that Microsoft should be ashamed to have their name on.

  4. create a predictive text option when using a microsoft word document

    When using a word document I may use the same phrase over and over again but predictive text is not recognised. Is there a facility or can a facility be made whereby I can formulate or create my own predictive text or make a list of my common phrases that I can simply call up by using a function key for example to input that phrase for me each time I require it.

  12. Windows Defender suffers from Decompression Bomb attack

    Windows Defender suffers from a "Decompression Bomb" attack.

    Steps to reproduce:
    * In Windows 10, enable Windows Defender scanning of an archive via PowerShell:
    set-mppreference -disablearchivescanning $true

    * Create a file larger than the free space on %SystemDrive%, place the file in an archive (e.g. image.gz), place archive file on a USB drive, and plug drive in mounted to E:\.

    * Using either the Windows Defender GUI, command prompt, or PowerShell, scan the image.gz file. For example, with command prompt:
    "%programfiles%\Windows Defender\mpcmdrun" -scan -scantype 3 -file E:\image.gz

  15. IP locks after x invalid login attempts

    An attacker's IP should be blocked for the Remote Desktop Access after X invalid logins.
    Best for a certain period of time.
    (A user can also be deactivated for x minutes after X invalid login attempts)

    We are seeing more and more server intrusion attempts with invalid usernames.

  19. NO Red flags after clean install

    I find it very irritating when the event log starts to fill with Red Error events straight after a clean install. If the install succeeds without errors, then the server should run without logging a bunch of errors, or are these errors not really errors ??
