Hi,

   Windows 2000/2003/XP/Vista

    * Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE).
    * Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion.
    * To change the values of the RegisteredOrganization, RegisteredOwner, or ProductId, simply double-click on them.

    * Note: This will only change the registered user information for Windows, not for the applications on your system.

    for more info, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310441

This registry changes can be incorporated into a Custom ADM file and can be deployed to all the Member PC through GPO. For more info on this please refer the following EE case

    http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_2003_Active_Directory/Q_22478204.html

Warning: Please do the testing by creating a TEST OU and moving some computers to that OU. Don't directly deploy in production environment.

Regards,
KKVP.
