Deep Freeze does not make any distinction between changes that are malicious, or changes that are desired on a workstation and this can pose some challenges in managing 3rd party products that require updates to occur on a periodic basis. Configure your Deep Freeze install package as per your normal requirements, including passwords and other settings that may be required. The most common interaction that we find on customers workstations is between antivirus software and Deep Freeze. Enter the following in the Batch File Contents field on the tab: @ECHO OFF IF EXIST "C:\Program Files\Mc Afee\Virus Scan Enterprise\mcupdate.exe" "C:\Program Files\Mc Afee\Virus Scan Enterprise\mcupdate.exe" IF EXIST "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mc Afee\Virus Scan Enterprise\mcupdate.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mc Afee\Virus Scan Enterprise\mcupdate.exe" 10.
Antivirus software by design requires periodic updates to maintain it’s effectiveness on a client workstation, and problems may arise unless steps are taken to ensure that the antivirus software can perform updates in a timely manner. Click on the “Create” button on the toolbar and save the Workstation Install Program in a location that you will remember. Install the updated workstation install file on your workstations.
Scheduled are used to configure the antivirus software to update in a timeframe where Deep Freeze will not be protecting the workstations. Select Batch File in the Task Type drop down and click Add. Name the event “Mc Afee Antivirus” in the Name field. Select the frequency for the updates to occur in the Day drop down and set the start and end time for the event. The options “Allow User to Cancel Event”, “Shutdown after Maintenance”, and “Disable Keyboard and Mouse” can be enabled if desired.
