Remove Win2000 IPX/SPX protocol with a bat file?

I am looking for a way to remove the NWLink IPX/SPX protocol from 500+ Windows 2000 computers without having to touch each machine and do it manually. Microsoft article Q239834 describes a bat file process for WINNT 4.0. This does not work for Windows 2000. Do you know of any bat file or other process that I can use to do a mass removal? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi
Only thing I could find that comes close. You may need to experiment, but it's a start hopefully. You could look at netset.exe from the resource kit, but that may fall short,
Torgeir's Novell Client uninstall script
http://groups.google.co.uk/groups?hl=en&lr=&threadm=42b401c1e700%24d0f2bdb0%2435ef2ecf%40TKMSFTNGXA11&rnum=7&prev=/groups%3Fhl%3Den%26lr%3D%26selm%3D42b401c1e700%2524d0f2bdb0%252435ef2ecf%2540TKMSFTNGXA11%26rnum%3D7

Sadly I'm not the worlds best scripter, but there are others around who could help with the tuning,

Deb,

Thanks for the reply. Netset.exe may be a possibility although it looks like the ini file must be created before you push it to a pc to configure the network settings. Not all our pc's have the same settings. However, I may be able to run netset.exe /display, route the output to an ini file, use some type of editor to automatically remove the IPX/SPX line and save the file, and then install the new ini. Anyone think this may be possible and what command would I use to edit and save the file? Thanks.

snetcfg.exe -u ms_nwipx

Thanks Deb.
