I would like to know the registry change(s) needed to set the default folder view to 'Details' for all XP users.  I want to either do this via a registry change or use of a login script.  Basically when I log in as a domain user for the first time their profile will get created.  I want the folder view to be set to Details for all folders.  I have already set via group policy the show hidden files and folders and unhide known file extensions.  If someone knows of a custom ADM template I could use to achieve the details view that would be fine too.  I have spent countless hours researching the settings, tweaks, and registry hacks to no avail.

Registry change is the only method I am aware of.  See the script located in another posting on this topic.
