Current version: ZENworks 2

Ever wonder why it takes so long time to distribute a large application to a workstation? Well, sometimes it's caused by the workstation running a realtime virus-killer.

Ed Leibrick had an article here about how to kill games, and the tool called Kill.exe from the location http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/nts/downloads/recommended/ntkit/default.asp.

This could also be used to speed-up distribution with Zen/ NAL.

How to do it:

This example is using InocuLAN

  1. Make a "Run before" script that look like this:
    "#KILL.EXE -f relmon.exe

  2. Make a "Run after Termination" Script that looks like:
    #C:\INOCULAN\REALMON.EXE

This will speed up your distribution a lot. In my case about 60%.
