Exchange 2003 mail move related script needed

I need to move users from their private dedicated exchange 2003 server to our Hosted exchange server. What this involves is the user executing a registry change file (which updates the outlook configurations) and then a .prf which imports all the users outlook settings. Before the .prf gets executed we have to delete any existing profiles from outlook. Can someone tell me how or where i can get a tool that will run a script that will execute this registry altering file as well as delete existing outlook profiles, THEN execute the .prf?? I need help bad, as I'm not familiar with scripting. The hope is to be able to have novice users simply execute this "script" and it will simply do all as ive listed above. Instead of myself remoting 1by1 into all 40+ users machines to do this myself manually. Thanks for any help provided.

Create a batch file (anything.bat) and edit it.
Copy-paste this into it:

reg add myregfile.reg /f
reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles" /f
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles"
myprffile.prf

Remarks:
1) executing the .reg file as such doesn't work so we use the REG command which is built into Windows. The /f option forces the change instead of waiting for user confirmation.
2) since you don't know the name of the existing profiles you'll have to delete the entire Profiles hive, and then recreate an empty one.
3) how do you execute your .prf file? Does it do it's job if you simply double-click it?

Lamer note #1: be sure to alter the names of the .reg and .prf files.
Lamer note #2: test this before sending it to all your users!

Hope this helps
