how do you apply security template settings to wiindows xp workstation

Can we apply the security template to a workstation by the click of a button.
Currently when i run the security template analyzer, it shows me all of my settings that doesn't match template. But i want to just apply the security template with the click of a mouse button instead of having to go in and change each setting manually

If you are on a domain then use GPO's that is what they are designed for. On individual machines you can use the secedit tool. see
You can always create a security template, and import it from the MMC console if you are not running a domain.
