I still don't have a fix. Is there a 3rd party software that will let you edit registry and have it pushed to every computer on the domain.

If changing the domain computers registry through group policy is not working for you, you can consider the following alternative:

1. Change the registry on 1 computer in the domain manually. Export this setting (HKLM\Software\Oracle only.
2. Save the registry file, f.i. oracle.reg
3. Copy the file oracle.reg to the netlogon share of your domain controller (\\server\NETLOGON)
4. Edit the logon batch file to include: regedit /s oracle.reg

When a domain computers logs onto the domain, the registry will be updated.

Does this work for you?
