Change default profile folder Location

Some times we can´t control what users have in profiles so we need to avoid that the %systemroot% be with no space available.

We can change the default location to another disk. To do it we can change in registry, “ProfilesDirectory” Location.

SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList]


Just change it to the location that you pretend such as “d:\users”.

Hope that this can be useful.


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”.

After enabling this option, we can only choose bettween Enabled or disabled.


The way to get rid of this configuration is simple, you only need to reset proxy 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.
