Create a file named "Cookies.reg"  then copy and paste the following into it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\P3P\History\website.com]
@=dword:00000001



Now, replace "website.com" with the site you want (your probably have to keep the www and http off for it to work).  You can also use an IP instead of the domain name.

The problem with using a vbscript is, this is an individual user setting.  You'll need to give the file to each user to run, or else run it as a log on script.

thank you, that is what I needed, just one more question, when I make the cookies.reg the logon script, will the users get the question of "Are you sure you want to add the information in ......registry?" question?

I'm not sure, I never tested using a reg as a logon script.  Try using this as a "login.bat"... I think it'll work (havn't tested though)

@echo off
REGEDIT /S cookies.reg
