Will this registry import negatively impact our computers?

The following registry settings were pushed out and imported to a large number of computers on our network. Are there any settings which will negatively affect the computers if they have the exact same registry settings listed below? I'm not sure if there is something related to the SIDs that will have to be unique for each computer or anything else for that matter. Thanks!

Im not too sure what you mean by negatively,

BUT if this is pushed out it wil overwrite the existing settings with these new settings.

The only negative impact would be if one of the settings above is wrong somehow, and cause word related problems.

But otha than that it should be iok

I would export the entire registry (go to export from the menu in the regedit screen) and sellect all in the checkbox once you click exxport.  Save it somewhere safe, then import that new reg file with all those keys.  Test word for a while and if you have any strange behaviour then you can go back to the saved version.

What you should do is export the registry. As far as I can see, only the MSWord application will be affected.

Afterthe export of the 'clean' registry', inport this one (above) and see if it works.

If MSWord fails to start, just restore the old registry.

I was looking for any issues that may arise outside of Word. I did take a closer look and discovered differing paths (see below) which may cause a problem depending how the Office was setup on the workstation, but nothing beyond that what will cause any other problems. Thansk!
