Disable Services monitoring for specific Services

Recommended Posts

When u use the built-in script "Add Automatically Started Services in Pulseway" some services wil be monitored that are triggert and not always on.

This wil result in unwanted notifications.

The first variable has the servicenames you want to disable.

$services = @('gupdate', 'ShellHWDetection', 'sppsvc', 'RemoteRegistry', 'MapsBroker', 'tiledatamodelsvc', 'WbioSrvc', 'WinDefend', 'CDPSvc')
$servicesRegex = [string]::Join('|', $services) # create the regex
$regservices = Get-ItemProperty "HKLM:\Software\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\Services"
$regservicesSplit = $regservices  -split ";"

foreach ($regservice in $regservicesSplit) {
	If ($regservice -match $servicesRegex ) {
		$servicesSplit = $regservice -split "="
		$servicesTrim = $servicesSplit[0]
		$servicesTrim = $servicesTrim.Trim()
        Remove-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\Software\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\Services" -Name $servicesTrim
        Write-Host $regservice " Verwijderd"

Hope it helps.

Question, new here but if you removed the entry as you suggest does that not also remove it from services from the tech side, meaning that if I remove the service from pc monitor\services sure it won't send the notice but lets say I wanted to view services from the manager and restart one, will that service still be listed? I just checked, when clicking the SERVICES tab in the web app you only see auto start services listed, so you'd not be able to manage it without logging in, take a look at this option:



# Note, This script removes all current excluded services from Notifications and replaces with your selection.

Remove-Item -Path "HKLM:\Software\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\ServicesExcludedFromNotifications\"  -Recurse
New-Item -Path "HKLM:\Software\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\ServicesExcludedFromNotifications\"

$exclude = @()
$exclude += 'gpsvc'
$exclude += 'ITmanager.net'
$exclude += 'clr_optimization_v4.0.30319_64'
$exclude += 'clr_optimization_v4.0.30319_32'
$exclude += 'ClickToRunSvc'
$exclude += 'sppsvc'
$exclude += 'SSUService'
$exclude += 'wuauserv'
$exclude += 'BITS'
$exclude += 'gupdate'
$exclude += 'TrustedInstaller'
$exclude += 'VSS'  # Volume Shadow Copy
$exclude += 'WUDO' # Service Host: Delivery Optimization

# $exclude += Just keep adding rows with new service name.

foreach ($service in $exclude){
Set-Itemproperty -path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\ServicesExcludedFromNotifications\' -Name Service$i -value $service
Set-Itemproperty -path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\ServicesExcludedFromNotifications\'  -Name 'Count' -value "$i"

I'd like to point out that disabling Windows Update related services is a very BAD idea. We've seen cases on Windows Server 2016 where if you stop, disable the Windows Update service, then use the GUI to check for available updates, the windows update component will crash and corrupt the system in a way where dism and sfc couldn't repair. Just something to keep in mind.

      Hi all,
      I hope you're having a great day and are keeping safe.
      I'm having an issue with setting up email notifications via SMTP to Office365. I've followed the document on setting Pulseway up to talk with Office365. I've also been in touch with support on this and haven't been satisfied with their answer.
      Have any of you linked this up successfully? If so, which IP addresses do you have whitelisted? Is there anything obvious I'm missing?
      I've set up a relay and can't see any attempt at mail delivery via 365.

      I am trying to install GCPW (Google Credential Provider for Windows).
      I am running into issue where with it:
      <# This script downloads Google Credential Provider for Windows from https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gcpw/, then installs and configures it. Windows administrator access is required to use the script. #> <# Set the following key to the domains you want to allow users to sign in from. For example: $domainsAllowedToLogin = "acme1.com,acme2.com" #> $domainsAllowedToLogin = "" Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Drawing Add-Type -AssemblyName PresentationFramework <# Check if one or more domains are set #> if ($domainsAllowedToLogin.Equals('')) { $msgResult = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('The list of domains cannot be empty! Please edit this script.', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Error') exit 5 } function Is-Admin() { $admin = [bool](([System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()).groups -match 'S-1-5-32-544') return $admin } <# Check if the current user is an admin and exit if they aren't. #> if (-not (Is-Admin)) { $result = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Please run as administrator!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Error') exit 5 } <# Choose the GCPW file to download. 32-bit and 64-bit versions have different names #> $gcpwFileName = 'gcpwstandaloneenterprise.msi' if ([Environment]::Is64BitOperatingSystem) { $gcpwFileName = 'gcpwstandaloneenterprise64.msi' } <# Download the GCPW installer. #> $gcpwUrlPrefix = 'https://dl.google.com/credentialprovider/' $gcpwUri = $gcpwUrlPrefix + $gcpwFileName Write-Host 'Downloading GCPW from' $gcpwUri Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $gcpwUri -OutFile $gcpwFileName <# Run the GCPW installer and wait for the installation to finish #> $arguments = "/i "$gcpwFileName"" $installProcess = (Start-Process msiexec.exe -ArgumentList $arguments -PassThru -Wait) <# Check if installation was successful #> if ($installProcess.ExitCode -ne 0) { $result = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Installation failed!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Error') exit $installProcess.ExitCode } else { $result = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Installation completed successfully!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Info') } <# Set the required registry key with the allowed domains #> $registryPath = 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Google\GCPW' $name = 'domains_allowed_to_login' [microsoft.win32.registry]::SetValue($registryPath, $name, $domainsAllowedToLogin) $domains = Get-ItemPropertyValue HKLM:\Software\Google\GCPW -Name $name if ($domains -eq $domainsAllowedToLogin) { $msgResult = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Configuration completed successfully!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Info') } else { $msgResult = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Could not write to registry. Configuration was not completed.', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Error') }
      I have tried the following:
      1. Run from batch file -- error "run as admin" but admin parameter was added
      2. Run from PowerShell --  error "leaves the script running forever"
      3. Pushed file to user and ran it (1) PowerShell -- error "needs run as admin" but admin parameter was added (2) batch -- error "script non-responsive"

      I am looking for a script that can trigger a 3rd party patch policy ad-hoc outside the policy schedule.
      It´s going to be used to start the installation process of software on newly registered machines in a "Computer registered" workflow.
      If there is anyone with another take on that I´m all ears.

      Best regards
