  • Type in Self Service, then enter
  • It should default to "Loaners" (in the menu on the right), and there should be three items in the folder. (Adobe, Express delete, and OS). Apply all three things.
  • Shut down the computer

PCs

  • Login as yourself
  • From the start menu search box, type c:/lis
  • Double click "clean me"
