script to delete a file on remote PC under a current logged on user
Posted on 2007-12-04
We have about 1500 workstations that are going to get McAfee upgraded from 8.0 to 8.5. There is a known issue with Outlook that throws a missing DLL error on startup for scanemal.dll add-in. One of the solutions offers to delete the extend.dat file and after next Outlook restart the error will go away.
My plan is to reboot workstations first to clear up any open Outlook instances. But then I need to reach in remotely and delete the extend.dat file from all the current profiles on each of the workstations. It sounds pretty simple to me but when I asked around for a script to complete this, I was told that its a complicated process. Is that so? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
