I’m looking for some feedback as to opinions regarding the installation of AdBlock Pro on our images.
The primary reasoning behind this would be to limit the amount of malware that is being installed via ads on websites. CN spends and exceptional amount of time supporting an issue that could potential be avoided.
What do you think? Do you see any program management issues or potential software conflicts?
Please leave your thoughts in the comments. Thanks.
Office 2013 is now the standard on all images coming from the Build Bench. Please let me know if customers encounter any oddities that we can address.
Additionally, if a user insists on Office 2010, please take extra steps on the interview sheet to make note of that. Until the interview sheets are updated the bench will assume 2010=2013 unless it is clearly communicated that the customer want Office 2010.

Just some info on a minor change to Outlook Web App so you all are aware and prepared for when it happens. The log in page will be changed up a bit, now reflecting the more current Outlook style:
The log in form works exactly the same. You may either use your Domain\user or firstname.lastname@example.org to log in. The changes are merely aesthetic, but may cause some confusion to users. The instructions to getting there are the same as well; exmail.oregonstate.edu -> Exchange Outlook Web App. The HelpDocs page will also be updated when this change is made, and will include screenshots and examples. You may direct users to this if they have questions.
Currently the plan is to push this change out on February 15th, at about 10:00PM.
On Tuesday, February 3rd at 5pm, a TSS domain-wide policy for OSU_Secure wireless will be deployed. What this does is create a wireless profile for OSU_Secure, sets it as the default profile and makes it available prior to Windows logon. Users will have the option to switch to OSU_Access if needed. OSU Extension has been excluded from this change due to potential issues with older access points. Additionally, Microsoft Surface tablets will be excluded from this change due to issues with wireless drivers that do notproperly support Cisco PEAP authentication.
