If this script does what you need, can you run it silently as part of the user's logon script?

It sounds like you are trying to apply the above registry keys to each user. I would suggest creating a custom group policy template (ADM).

You can use Reg2ADM ( which will convert your .reg file to the group policy template format. (you can edit it in notepad to ensure the correct syntax)

Once you have your ADM file correct, import the ADM into Group Policy Manager (ensure you don't have unconfigurable options hidden). You can then apply the registry settings against your target users

Here is a useful link

Hope this helps

When I want to make changes to my clients registry, within an Active Directory environment, I add a line to the users logon script/batch file that copies a registry key local (C drive) then executes the registry changes silently. I would simply create the keys you wish to enforce, and then integrate them.

 I hope this helps, or at least gives you some ideas.
