Hello all,
 
I thought this maybe useful as it caused a lot of grief that took several days to fix.
 
After Disabling UAC via Domain GPO and Re-enabling it Users that logged in with account when UAC was disabled are now broken and need to be recreated.
 
When I realized that UAC is required for Windows 8 Metro to function I immediately remedied my mistake. However, the damage was already done and my client's profiles that use the Windows 8 machines are at this point broken.
 
I found an article that talks reports "Disabling UAC via this method also breaks many elements in Windows 8."http://www.petri.co.il/disabling-user-account-control-uac-in-windows-8.htm#
 
After enabling UAC for the windows 8 machines all profiles were damaged to the point where a "Temp" profile would be created to login to the affected systems. I then renamed the profile...

I thought I would write this small blog as a way to voice my exsaperation over the extremely poor service I am receiving from Symantec.

We have recently take over a business that is running Message Filtering thorugh the Symantec Cloud.  This product is in itself excellent and the support and montioring on it is first class.  The business in question was using their old IT provider for this service and hence required us to take up the administration.

I have therefore set about getting us setup as a cloud partner so we can offer the service to this customer and hopefully others.  This is where the compliments end I'm afraid...

My original submission was on the 29th October.  Initially I had correspondance from Symantec on my progress, there were various questions being passed around determining what we needed etc.  It then got to the stage where we had to enter into a credit check (4/11/13).  I must admit I never knew it took 16...

Last week at our annual North America Partner Engage event, we pulled back the curtain on Symantec’s new Global Channel Strategy and shared how we are changing the way we go to market. We have committed to delivering more than 5 percent organic revenue growth with operating margins better than 30 percent, and we can’t achieve this goal without our partners. I’d like to take this opportunity to share more details about the new Global Channel Strategy and explain how it represents an important step forward in Symantec’s 4.0 journey.

But first, let me take a brief step back to provide some context around how we got to this point. When Steve Bennett, our CEO, joined Symantec over a year ago, he embarked on a global listening tour where partners, customers and employees voiced a need for Symantec to change. He learned that Symantec had great technology and great people, but we needed to do more to help our customers solve their bigger jobs. In...

Most people today rely on email as their method for business communication – sending and receiving hundreds of emails every day. This dependence on email can create a weak link in securing corporate information and expose a company to attacks. While hackers still use general spam emails and social engineering (or phishing) attacks against organizations, they are now increasingly pursuing sophisticated and targeted attacks that are far more difficult to differentiate from the emails we typically receive. In fact, Symantec’s 2013 Internet Security Threat Report found a 42 percent increase in targeted attacks in 2012.  

Most spam emails are relatively easy to identify and quarantine, but targeted attacks are customized for their recipients, making them harder to spot. For example, a company’s HR department could receive an email that requests that they click on a...

Many understand how archiving can complement messaging platforms like Microsoft Exchange Server – the value it delivers to IT Admins and teams that manage these systems. But others still don’t realize the benefits archiving offers beyond email, for other teams inside and outside IT. Valued Symantec resellers – if you have customers or prospects considering information archiving, or are just curious about it, have them attend this webcast for a refresher on the core value of archiving. We’ll also discuss how archiving helps:

  • Manage unstructured data beyond email, such as SharePoint, File Systems and even social media
  • Improve backup and recovery
  • Stop end users from bugging the IT Admin by enhancing user experience and productivity
  • Simplify Compliance and eDiscovery

We’ll take you through common use cases and scenarios that showcase how archiving can help reduce costs and improve operational...
