By using a web-based PC Management system, you can do everything you need to do from anywhere as far as IT stuff is concerned. PC management, security, Track software and hardware inventory, Malware protection, updates, etc.

Hi Martyn,

I understand your question

The intention of the windows registry, rudimentary in Windows 3.1x, and user profiles was so user's preferences could travel with them when they changed machines.

Why then is it best users have a dedicated machine?

Well the second place software settings (that used be held in .ini files) is in the HKLM registry key.  Expensive applications are typically installed per role, e.g. Autocad, HR, CRM for Sales and Marketing etc.  Some applications sadly don't store user preferences in the HKCU key.

Basically profiles are a good idea poorly implemented (or are great for making software piracy awkward (as xcopy installs no longer work) as replicating content on domain logins is too slow for email (outlook, Thunderbird etc have potentialy additional profiles within a given user profile).

Corrupt profiles is a common problem.

Roaming profiles only work well when very locked down, e.g. can't create folders on the desktop.

The advantage of a user sticking with the one machine is no network overhead logging in, little synchronising of profiles, less need for multi-seat software licences,

Another reason is that auditing, with out of the box settings, is poor, and you can check individual login / out time in the registry.  With hot desking trying to find who was logged in from where, with resume/suspension on laptops, docking etc, may involve scaping the eventlogs from all systems (more expensive monitoring).

I't can be useful to know that Brenda's desktop has a DHCP reservation making her address 192.168.15.29 and it was her system that used up all the letterhead paper...
