Automatically Launched Utilities
The following utilities are automatically started upon system start or successful thin client logon:
•Unified Write Filter: Upon system start, the Unified Write Filter utility is automatically started. The icon
in the notification area of the taskbar indicates the active or inactive status of the Unified Write Filter
by the colors green and red respectively. See Using the Unified Write Filter (UWF).
NOTE: Using the Unified Write Filter (UWF)While the Dell Wyse WF (Write Filter) icons and
functionality are currently supported, we recommend you use the UWF as described in
Microsoft documentation. See www.microsoft.com and navigate to the Unified Write Filter
•NetXClean Utility: Upon system start, the NetXClean utility is automatically started. NetXClean is a
clean-up utility that keeps extraneous information from being stored on the local disk. If you want to
keep certain profile configurations such as for printers, be sure to configure NetXClean to refrain from
cleaning up any number of explicitly declared profiles. See Understanding the NetXClean Utility.
•VNC Server: Upon successful thin client logon, the Windows VNC Server utility is automatically
started. VNC allows a thin client desktop to be accessed remotely for administration and support. See
Using Tight VNC (Server and Viewer) to Shadow a Thin Client.
