How to undo LabTechSoft's security policy after uninstall
Posted on 2015-01-01
Hello fellow Geeks,
I have recently acquired a new customer who had a previous IT company using Labtech software's remote monitoring and support tool.
Now I'm not about to claim my tool is any better or worse, but the Labtech software install was like a virus as it has no uninstall option and you have to do about a 5 step process to remove it from the pc.....That's not so bad really...
But the security policy is left altered by the application.
Now normally I'd not have too much issue with that at this point, but some users in the building are locked down pretty tight and others, not so much.
Here are my questions:
Boxes all Win7
1. If i use the MS method to "default local security policy" via command promt, Will it break my existing connections to the domain server? In other words, will it break anything? (The goal is to get everyone back to same ness)
2. If I reset the policy to default on the SERVER, will it break any client connections? Will it break anything?
3. If I reset "DOMAIN policy" on the server to default, will it break anything?
This is an in production domain controller and clients.
P.s. Typically I build my own networks from scratch and they behave exactly like I expect them to, but since I'm inheriting a network, I'm a bit paranoid about just resetting default values as I've never had to do that before.
Thank you all for the help
