The simplest way is to delete the "Default.rdp" file from your My Documents.
It is a hidden file so you have to turn on "Show Hidden Files and Folders" under My computer | on the menu bar -Tools | folder options | View

Wouldn't it just recreate when I connect to another machine?

I want to do this on a domain of 700 machines.

>>"Wouldn't it just recreate when I connect to another machine?"
Yes. Sorry, thought we were talking about a single user.

There is a Group Policy to block saving of passwords, but not familiar with a policy to prevent saving of the other information.
All I can think of is to create a log off script with:
Del  "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\My Documents\Default.rdp"  /Y
I suspect with 700 users you likely are using redirected my docs so you would have to edit the above.
