  • Dear Mike

    Im trying to create a script to reset windows 10 workstations to the default GPO. Would you have any examples ? I would be pushing it out thru Intune.

    Any advise would be appreciated.

  • Hello Mike

    I wanted to know if you had seen any scripting for resetting's Group Policy for windows 10 OS. We are looking to reset to factory status. We would push out thru Azure / Intune.  If you have any ideas, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

  • Thank you for explain infinity rulls

    it is Very complete

  • If you cannot get it to work you nee to use "Install-GnuPG -DownloadFolderPath 'C:'" which will get you gpg4win-2.2.5.exe, gpg4win-3.1.10.exe will not work.

  • Hello, is there a re-req article to this one? I cant get Get-ActiveTcpConnections.ps1: to work, erroring out on:

    Convert-NetStatRemoteEndpoint : The term 'Convert-NetStatRemoteEndpoint' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.


    which makes sense because I never created any such function anywhere. I'm trying to create something that shows tcp connections with the state of Time_wait, Close_wait and listening and to output the info to a file or OGV with Time stamps, I want it to run for maybe 10 minutes. Not sure if this is doable, but want to get this function to work.
