Ola gents,

We created some batch to find all installed programs on workstations.
we would like to filter out a whitelist, and echo the non-whitelisted.

For instance....Filter out all software that contains:
"Security"
"Microsoft"
"ESET"
enz. enz.

And echo the software that isn't whitelisted.

All help is appreciated.
Thanx in advance.
