First, with v4.8.8 just released, I am fixing a bug with my encryption/decryption method of storing your email password, that was introduced in v4.8.5 – if your email actions within D7 quit working at v4.8.5 then this was the culprit. Regardless, with the v4.8.8 update you will be prompted to confirm your stored email password […]
D7 v4.8.6 has been in Pre-Release for several days… I am about to upload the full release version, but just thought I’d let you all know that D7 versions will remain in Pre-Release a lot longer than they used to. Reason being, I’m not a bench tech anymore, not as of Monday. Now I am […]
Yep, if you use the email features of D7, you’ll know your password was stored in plain text in the INI file. Now, the password is stored with encryption, and also asterisks will be displayed in the D7 config screen for anyone looking in there! …among other new features, this was the biggie.
I’ve received many requests for the ability to custom brand D7 with your own company name and logo, for a more professional look when your customers are within view. It seems that many who wish to use D7, do NOT want their customers watching them using 3rd party applications such as D7 to solve issues. Well now you […]
First, I hope you know that D7 has ALWAYS done the set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 environment variable bit before launching Computer Management in the Windows tab, so you can simply select Show Hidden Devices in the Device Manager and see actual missing devices and the Non-Plug and Play Devices category. That feature is a given, and […]
In D7 v4.7.9 (currently available only as a pre-release update) I’ve added a sweet new feature! D7 Locksmith – a function to remove passwords from offline Windows installations. What you do: You can either slave the HDD to your Tech Bench Computer, or boot the client’s PC to a WinPE based boot CD with D7 […]
Here’s what’s new in the last few versions of D7 (currently at v4.7.4): General: Del Temp Files function now also does Windows Update temps (%windir%SoftwareDistributionDownload) Repair Permissions time is vastly reduced by combining command line parameters for subinacl (duh!) clicking the X to close D7 will prompt you as to HOW to close D7 (completely, […]
D7 v4.6.4 now includes special methods related to deleting the reparse point created by this malware on the Tweaks tab > NTFS Junctions. The new function is “Destroy Junction” which will be able to delete the junction point on top of the directory where the malware hides, allowing you to then delete that directory. Haven’t […]
First, I’ve added the ability to use a whitelist with KillEmAll. The feature is designed for adding your remote support app to the whitelist, so you can run KillEmAll on a remote support session and it won’t kill your connection software (e.g. Teamviewer, etc.) You could use the whitelist for other items, but why? Additionally, […]
Today I officially released D7 v4.5 New Features: Inside D7’s internal event viewer, you now have the ability to: Write your own messages to the application event log. CLEAR the event logs, and optionally have then backed up. Backups of the event logs are created as %systemroot%%eventlogname%.evt Backups may be opened and viewed […]
