The Zero Administration Kit

The Zero Administration Kit contains some useful free tools:

  • Floplock - This tool prevents use of the floppy disk drive (even after rebooting) with a Discretionary Access Control List (DACL). If this service is configured to start automatically, only administrators and power users can access the floppy disk drive on a Windows NT workstation, and only administrators can access the floppy disk drive on an NT server.
  • Con2Prt - This tool provides scriptable functionality to the Add Printer Wizard, so printers can be added or removed from the command line using a script.
  • FixPrf - Windows Messaging doesn't automatically use the currently logged on user name when it's started. The FixPrf tool forces the Windows Messaging client to load with the user name of the user logging in.
