How do I make a program in visual basic 2013 that is able to accomplish one or both of the following steps:
a. Go into Services, and stop and disable the "Distributed Link Tracking" service. It tries to find a new location for shortcuts having no valid target info anymore, and the result is wrong/random most of the time.
b. You can also disable this behavior through group policies by enabling the following setting:
User Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/File Explorer/Do not track shell shortcuts during roaming
We have to many computers to do it manually that is why I am planning to distribute a small exe.
some stations still have win XP, others win 7 and others win8
Please your advice
