Disable Content Advisor on 150+ Windows 2000 PC's

I need to disable Content Advisor on 150+ Windows 2000 PC's.  Each PC has the same Administrator password.  I don't want to go into each machine and disable it manually in IE.  I also don't want to go into each machine and edit the registry to remove the "Key" for the password.  I tried exporting that key to other machines hoping it would disable on the other machines, but it did not.

You need to apply a group policy to the OU that contains your users. Right click onthe OU and click on properties, then the group policy tab. Create a Group policy then if you go to User Confiuration>windows settings>IE Maintenance>Security you can set it there.

momisp,
Unfortunatley, these PC's are setup in a workgroup instead of with Active Directory.  They all are identical except for the computer name.  How can I setup this group policy and distribute it to the other PC's?

What version of IE are you using?
You could try using the IEAK Profile Manager (Microsoft Tool) to create a automatic configuration file.
Unfortunately depending on your existing configuration you might have to re-install a customised IE but it will be worth it in the long run!
