Disabling IE7 Content Advisor Through Group Policy

I have an OU with about 40 people with an attached group policy.  Content Advisor is set to enabled when they open IE7.  I want it to be disabled.  Is there a way through group policy, (either computer or user policy) to disable this for the whole OU.  This is a lab environment where users have roaming profiles and don't use the same workstations.  I hope I don't have to end up disabled Content Advisor manually for each user.  Please help.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Ratings\.Default]
"Enabled"=dword:00000000 is the registry location. You can script this as a startup/shutdown script.

Also - to stop them changing the current settings:

Open gpedit - or create a new/edit current GPO:

Computer Configuration

Expand Administrative Templates, expand Windows Components, expand Internet Explorer, and then click Internet Control Panel.
 
In the details pane, double-click Disable the Content page, and then click Enabled.
