Removing Trend Icon from SysTray on Terminal Servers

If you are using Trend Micro for Anti-virus on your terminal servers you should consider applying the following changes to remove the icon from running in the system tray.  It is inefficient and drags down performance to run this for everyone so it works best to remove it.  

Here are the changes:

If you are running Trend Micro on a Terminal Server, you should consider removing the systray process for monitoring Trend Micro on each user account.

REMOVE INI ENTRIES
notepad C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Client Server Security Agent\ofcscan.ini
search for NT_RUN_KEY_FILE_NAME=pccntmon.exe and change to
NT_RUN_KEY_FILE_NAME=

NT_RUN_KEY_FILE_NAME=pccntmon.exe Removed by Admin

search for NT_RUN_KEY=OfficeScanNT Monitor and change to
NT_RUN_KEY=

NT_RUN_KEY=OfficeScanNT Monitor Removed by Admin

REMOVE REGISTRY ENTRY
regedt32
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
remove OfficeScanNT Monitor

Disable Firefox Auto Update for Terminal Servers

Disable the auto-update feature in Firefox.

I accomplished this by first creating a file called mozilla.cfg in the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox directory with the following contents:

// Disable Auto Updates
lockPref(”app.update.enabled”, false);
lockPref(”extensions.update.enabled”, false);

Those instruct Firefox to disable the auto update for the browser itself AND any add-in extensions.

Also you must edit C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\greprefs edit the file all.js and add this to the bottom:

// Process mozilla.cfg in FireFox root directory.
pref(”general.config.obscure_value”, 0);
pref(”general.config.filename”, “mozilla.cfg”);

Without that last piece, Firefox won’t process the mozilla.cfg you created.

No reboot needed, and hopefully you’ll never run into this again.
