Windows 10 Practice Image Guide
The purpose of this document is to provide information about the Cyberhub Windows 10 image so that coaches and mentors may better help teams that are in need of assistance. Also, this can serve as an outline of some potential items that may be seen during CyberPatriot competitions.
Items on the image to look for:
For the items found under the Account Policies category, please refer your students to the Local Group Policy Editor (open the start menu and type gpedit or gpedit.msc as a shortcut). The settings specific to this step can be found under: Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Password Policy
For the items found under the Installed Programs category, please refer your students to the Control Panel (open the start menu and type Control Panel as a shortcut) where they can uninstall the requested software. They will need to uninstall Apple Application Support, Apple Software Update, and QuickTime 7 for full credit.
For the items found under the Users category, please refer your students to either the User Accounts settings (open the start menu and type User Accounts as a shortcut) or the Computer Management settings (open the start menu and type Computer Management as a shortcut). They will need to change the passwords for the Administrator and CyberHub accounts, configure the CyberHub account so that it cannot change its own password, and disable both the DefaultAccount and Guest accounts.
For the Shares category, please refer your students to the CyberHub folder by opening the File Explorer (the file folder on the menu bar at the bottom of the screen) and selecting the Videos folder in the pane on the left side of the window. Once they are in the Videos folder, they can right click the CyberHub folder, and then select Properties. Once the Properties menu opens, they can select the Sharing tab, and then select the Advanced Sharing option. Another window will open, and they will need to de-select the option
to “Share this folder”.
For the Firewall Profiles category, please refer your students to the Windows Firewall settings (open the start menu and type Windows Firewall as a shortcut). Next, have them look in the pane on the left side of the window for the Turn Windows Firewall on or off option. Once they have selected the Turn Windows Firewall on or off option, they can select the option to turn on the Windows Firewall for both the Private Profile and Public Profile. Before exiting, they must also select the option that will block all incoming connections.
For the Roles and Features category, the prompt discusses the WannaCry virus. The item associated with this step is the SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support setting which can be found by accessed by accessing the Windows Features menu (open the start menu and type Turn Windows features on or off as a shortcut), and then scrolling down until they find the option titled SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support. Once they deselect this feature, the points will be granted.
For the first portion of the Other category, please refer your students to the Advanced System Settings which can be accessed several different ways. The easiest way to access this setting, however, is by going directly to the appropriate window by opening the start menu and typing Allow remote access to your computer. I suggest having them research other methods so they are familiar with where these settings can be accessed, but this is the easiest and most straightforward. Once the System Properties window is open, and the Remote tab is selected, they must select the option listed as Don’t allow remote connections to this computer.
For the second portion of the Other category, please refer your students to the File Explorer on the menu bar at the bottom of the screen. From here, they can do a search for the files that need to be deleted, or go through each folder until they find what they need. The RemoveThis.txt file can be found in the Documents folder in the pane on the left side of the File Explorer window. The RemoveMe.txt file can be found in the Pictures folder in the pane on the left side of the File Explorer window. Lastly, the DeleteThis.txt file is in a hidden folder, so the students will need to Show hidden files and folders (open the start menu and type Show hidden files and folders as a shortcut). Once the File Explorer Options
window opens, they will need to select the Show hidden files, folders, and drives option and then select Apply (it is always good practice to leave the window open and then revert the settings once a given step is complete to avoid leaving important files and folders visible). The DeleteThis.txt file can be found under:
Local Disk (C:) -> Users -> Public -> Public Account Pictures
