comment Office 2003 Service Pack 3- Not able to install
Did you check that all the logging options are turned on in the ohotfix.ini ? What did you see in the log files saved in the temp folder on your server?

comment SCCM Client Image deployment options
Also on the having to wait out the polling interval before the job will run, if the machine in question is in front of you can go into Control Panel, open up the Configuration Manager applet, click the Actions tab and then select "Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle" and Initiate, this does the same thing as I described above using Client Centre.

comment Tool to download only selective pages / particular page from a document !
Have you ever tried creating a short document in MS Word .doc format, saving it, editing it a bit, and then opening that in Notepad? The actual text that you wrote is all over the file, with all the formatting and meta data stored in other places. Sometimes the pages or parts of pages aren't even in order inside the actual file.

comment Best software for Mac to Windows remote control?
A number of our directors have Logmein installed on their home PCs so that our support people can connect to them and sort out basic stuff when needed. Each director has their own Logmein login and account, you can connect to any of these PCs from a machine with Logmein installed. The install isn't tied to the account, you have to log into the Logmein website to authenticate as whichever account you're using.

comment War of the JRE versions
True, but equally it can massively reduce your exposure. If you have apps/sites that require specific older versions of Java, you can give that app the exact version it wants, whilst making the main system wide Java install the latest security patched version. The alternative would be to only install the version that works with your apps and never upgrade the system-wide version to anything newer than that.

comment Batch file match start of machine name
In fact to further simplify the whole thing can be written on one line as: FOR %%A IN (UKD UKL USD) DO IF %%A==%computername:~0,3% RunMyCommand thanks for pointing me in the right direction RainyRat.

comment Batch file match start of machine name
Ah brilliant, that's what I was missing. What's the colon tilde bit there, is that a substring type thing or a simple regex? I''ve put in your two lines followed by this bit to run the command: FOR %%A IN (UKD UKL USD) DO IF %%A==%FirstThreeChars% RunMyCommand and all is good :)
