User Protection Description

ScreenshotUser Protection is a misleading anti-virus application that is a member of the FakeCog (CoreGuard) family and should not be trusted. On infiltrating a system, User Protection will create a start-up registry entry and disable legitimate security programs running on the system.

Do not waste your money on User Protection it is a fake security application.

User Protection is from the same family as the rogue applications called PC Protection Center 2008, Protection System, CoreGuard Antivirus 2009, Paladin Antivirus, Dr.Guard, Your Protection, Digital Protection, Data Protection, Protection Center, Defense Center, AnVi, PC Protection Center, Virus.DOS.RogueAntiSpyware, Fraud.Defense Center, Malware Protection Center, Adware.PCProtectionCenter.

    Hi Troy, Solution on this post is for those who want to auto-log-off when users disconnect tiarenml server. So in that case you just have to change "Sessions" setting for User's profile under Manage Groups and Users section of your Windows Server.Basically what version of Windows Server are you running with? I have noticed with Windows Server 2008 R2, there is ability for new user trying to login can request Log off to another user when tiarenml license limit is reached, that request will log off requested user if he does not respond in 30 seconds. This will prevent restart of server when people forget to log-off and just disconnects from the server. I hope this helps. Let me know if you still have some doubt.
