A very popular (and free) program that creates a backup of the registry and store it in the Windows directory (default location) is called ERUNT.  In a disaster you can restore from diskette, etc.

I'm not sure.  You would have to develop some script and get it (or any other method) pushed down to all 1000 client pc's.

If you don't get any other responses here, you can request to close this problem with your points refunded.  Then open a new problem and add a few more topic areas, such as Windows XP, which has lots of EE experts following that one.  Or networking.

Thanks for the points, but I don't really feel like I deserve them because you haven't gotten your original problem answered and resolved.  By "close with points refunded" you contact the EE administrator and provide a link to this question and have them close it and get your points back.

I feel certain it can be done, but I'm just not familiar with how to push and automate the task over the network.
