Automation/Scheduling Tool. ScriptLogic once again comes out on top—this time with its Desktop Authority automation and scheduling tool. Desktop Authority lets you centrally control printers, shortcuts, registry settings, Windows Firewall, folder redirections, mail profiles, and Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) and Office settings. Its Validation Logic lets you target configuration elements to certain computer groups. The most recent version offers interactive management functionality, remote control of user desktops, and patch-management and antispyware capabilities, and the Installation Wizard makes the tool's setup and installation a breeze.
