  • Reports that some update is clobbering LiteTouch.lnk, the restart shortcut for the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit

    At first I thought this was a one-off, but now I’ve seen confirmation that it’s happening.

    For unknown reason, after installing updates, the LifeTouch.lnk scheduled task is deleted, so MDT doesn’t know to restart itself. From Dan Jackson:

    Ends up he’s working with Win10 1607 LTSC.

    There’s a confirmation tweet from Ray Tiley:

    Ray’s running Win10 1809 LTSC.

    There’s also a post on the TechNet support forum from AdminSN:

    does one of you know the problem that the Bitdefender deletes the shortcut LiteTouch.lnk and classifies it as a Trojan (Trojan:Script/Cloxer.A!cl)?

    Can anybody else out there confirm this problem?
