    Re: script for hardening the windows server

    Scripting would be a long process. First you must find out what you can change on each server to secure it better, before you can try to write a script that will do these changes.

    (stopping Services: If you know which *services* you want to prevent starting on the server or clients because you know they are no longer needed, you can use the SC.exe command in a batchfile to change the starttype, or by configure 'services' in a computer GPO).

    Do have a look at these special tools for Windows Server
    - Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA)
    - Security Configuration Wizard (SCW)
