  • Querying for specific installed software, such as Hotbar

    I've hacked on this issue long enough so I am posting the issue here. I have no problems querying workstations for installed software but am looking to be able to query all of my workstations and find out who has Hotbar, Trillian, etc, mainly spyware and malware, installed to their systems. I don't really care for the full blown installed applications report using the uninstall\* wildcard found in the built in template.

    How do I do this??

    Thanks guys

    If you know filenames these products use you can search all computers for the existence of those.

    Here are some instructions showing how to use the Custom Tool function in Hyena to search for specific files.

    You'll go to Tools->Settings->Tools and click New. Give it a Menu Caption of something like Find Files, then enter the following into the Command Line box:

    Cmd /x/c dir \\%E%\C$\file.dat /s >>c:\results.txt

    To run this, select the computers you want to search in Hyena's right window, then right-click and choose Tools->Find Files.

    This will execute the above command for each of the selected computers, replacing the %E% with the computer name for each, and save the output to c:\results.txt.

    You can then open c:\results.txt and look through it to see what computers have file.dat on them.

      that seems to work just fine, don't much care for the output format. The output format of the template for the published appls looks better, everything on one line. Is there a way to do it by querying for a specific reg key. Seems like there would be I just haven't hit on it yet...any suggestions?
