How can I reset the video resolution to 800x600 upon shut down to make sure a machine can be used with older monitors when it is rebooted in a new location?

Here is my situation. I have several sites from which I work. At some location, the customer I serve has older monitors. If I set my monitor to run with resolution greater than800 by 600, I often find that when I get to another site I cannot use the machine because i forgot to change my resolution be fore I left the faster monitor. The machine displays a lot of jitter tht is so out of synch that I cannot use any of the GUI to reset the display. I wonder if there is a way to use some ".reg" command to be included in a shutdown routine that will reset the display features to the ones I need to use on the monitors which have the minimum frequency of operation that I sometimes encounter among the offices in which I find myself using my computer with somebody else's computer.
