New(ish) App: KillEmAll Mini v19.2.2 has been released! https://www.d7xtech.com/newish-app-killemall-mini-v19-2-2-has-been-released/ https://www.d7xtech.com/newish-app-killemall-mini-v19-2-2-has-been-released/#respond Sat, 02 Feb 2019 17:33:18 +0000 https://www.d7xtech.com/?p=16169 KillEmAll is a ‘panic’ button with an ‘ask questions later’ attitude, designed to neutralize, terminate, and later identify all non-essential running programs.  Great for quickly closing unwanted apps, system inspection, and even malware removal!

KillEmAll Mini is a no frills implementation of the fully featured KillEmAll which has no user interface, no update capabilities, no definitions file capabilities, it doesn’t show you what apps it terminated, etc..

Simply run the .exe and it terminates unnecessary programs running under any standard user account.  If your Windows is configured with UAC enabled (default) then you can right-click and choose Run as Administrator to kill all other programs running under an Administrator/System account.

KillEmAll Mini.exe will display a prompt when completed, but it can be scripted to display no prompt by passing “/auto” to it on the command line.  e.g. “KillEmAll Mini.exe /auto

Download it from the main KillEmAll page!

dSupportSuite Client Software v19.1.29 Release Notes https://www.d7xtech.com/dsupportsuite-client-software-v19-1-29-release-notes/ https://www.d7xtech.com/dsupportsuite-client-software-v19-1-29-release-notes/#respond Tue, 29 Jan 2019 20:00:59 +0000 https://www.d7xtech.com/?p=16143 Changes in dSupportSuite Client Software v19.1.29:

  • The dSupportSuite real-time event monitoring service will now update as a separate component (along with BootSafe and the Maintenance Check app; this is independent of optional self-hosted app update deployments.)

 

Changes in dSupportSuite Real-Time Event Monitoring Service v19.1.29:

  • Fixed a crash condition in the real-time event monitoring service under certain circumstances, causing the service to restart and skip an error event that should be logged for the next heartbeat and/or emailed.
  • Fixed the real-time event monitoring service failing to send email when TLS/StartTLS encryption was configured in SMTP settings (this functionality was introduced in a recent dSupportSuite update, but was not implemented in the real-time event monitoring service.)
  • Fixed dSupportSuite not configuring the real-time event monitoring service to restart on failure during installation. This will now correct itself on update.

 

Changes in dSupportSuite Maintenace Check Reminder Screen v19.1.28:  (yesterday)

  • The Maintenance Check reminder screen update resolves the logo displaying as a square (squishing the logo’s width) when configured to display as the full length rectangle.

 

Update Availability:  As always, client software will receive all updates during the scheduled hearbeat (if configured), at application startup (if configured), or always prior to any Maintenance run.

  • Updates deploy automatically to client software and all components installed by d7x subscribers deploying the built-in dSupportSuite client software, as well as owners of dSupportSuite Mgmt Console using dCloud (legacy accounts.)
  • Owners of dSupportSuite Mgmt Console who are using Self-Hosted FTP for configuration/deployment (the majority) must deploy this Client EXE to your customers manually through your own FTP server.  See this video for a how-to:  https://youtu.be/2P3DT8ioREQ
  • Client components aside from the main Client EXE will deploy automatically regardless of self-hosted status.

  • Improved Edge support
  • Improved delete routines with respect to multiple browser/user specific profiles in all Chromium variants as well as Firefox.

 

Malware Search Tool changes: 

  • Fixed right-click and delete option was either not deleting at all or not deleting the selected file/dir.
  • Fixed LNK Target field not populating in search results.
  • Fixed all files option stubbornly and silently reverting to default file extensions when using the custom file search prompt.
  • Added .lnk (shortcuts) to default file extensions in Desktops, Start Menus, and Startup Folders searches.
  • Began documenting Malware Search Tool behavior on this page in the manual.

    Amphetamine v3 (FREE) Released Jan 5th, 2019! https://www.d7xtech.com/amphetamine-v3-free-released-jan-5th-2019/ https://www.d7xtech.com/amphetamine-v3-free-released-jan-5th-2019/#respond Sat, 05 Jan 2019 19:16:36 +0000 https://www.d7xtech.com/?p=16047 Amphetamine v3 contains some exciting new features especially for Windows 10 users (and it’s still FREE for both personal and commercial usage!)

    • Both the Amphetamine portable and installer versions are now the same binary and both are capable of the same usage and configuration.
    • Added option to manually check for updates to Amphetamine.
    • Improvements to the Shutdown/Restart prevention:
      • Added Group Policy setting to block Windows Update from initiating automatic reboots when users are logged in.  Because this is not guaranteed to prevent automated restarts on non-enterprise editions of Windows in all circumstances, see the following addition.
      • Added blocking of “MusNotification.exe” which prevents Windows 10 from initiating automated restarts due to Windows Update (this also prevents displaying Windows Update notifications, such as updates available or the need for restart after an update is installed.)
      • Added blocking of “shutdown.exe” which many apps will use instead of API (laziness) that can also be used with a force flag which would override Amphetamine; now the file is blocked entirely from all usage.
      • NOTE:  these three improvements are static and do not rely on Amphetamine.exe to be actively running, however when Amphetamine is closed normally the modifications are removed.  If Amphetamine.exe is terminated forcefully (e.g. from Task Manager), it will leave these blocks in place until it is restarted and closed normally, or run with the “/uninstall” command line argument.
    To give credit where it is due, blocking of “MusNotification.exe” is credited to this Reddit thread as mentioned on our d7xTech Show on Jan 4th, 2019.  This addition also inspired me to add the the other two additions as mentioned above.
