Clear all messages in queue with certain subject

From powershell run this command:

Get-Message | where {$_.Subject -like “Place here the text”} | Remove-Message -WithNDR $false

Dsquery List members for all groups

Open Command prompt and use dsquery to export to txt the data to a TXT file.

Removing Auto Detect Proxy Settings From GPO.

A few days ago I add to remove proxy settings from Default Domain GPO, this particulary option “Automatically detect configuration settings”.

Be carefull where you execute this action, because it will clear everything related to proxy settings, and don’t Forget to backup GPO’s before making any changes.

Hope this can be usefull.
