I need help disabling content adviser on all my computers. I would like to run a logon script for the users when they login.

The location of the registry item for content advisor is:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Ratings\.Default]
"Enabled"=dword:00000000

Can you please create a script that I can run that would work?

Thanks.

const HKCU = &H80000001
const HKLM = &H80000002

strComputer = "."
Set StdOut = WScript.StdOut

Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")  
strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Ratings\.Default"
 strValueName = "Enabled"
dwValue = 0
 oReg.SetDWORDValue HKLM, strKeyPath, strValueName, dwValue

Slight problem still - the script is running great, but you have to be a member of the administrators group locally in order for it to change anything.

Is there any easy solution to have this script change the registry if you are just a standard user?

Thanks
