Recently we had a customer pose the question “How can I keep users from shutting down InTouch?” The simple answer is to use the security settings in InTouch to completely lock down the PC. Unfortunately, in this case the PC was used for other applications as well so in some rare cases a user would accidently close down the InTouch application without realizing it. This would result in data loss until the shutdown was discovered.
It turns out there is a very easy way to accomplish this with a little known Windows utility called Windows Task Scheduler. You can find this utility in All Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Scheduled Tasks. This utility is available in all versions of Windows.
