I need to write a login script to add a key to the registry in Windows XP.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common
After you click the registry subkey, point to New on the Edit menu, and then click Key.
"  Type Security, and then press ENTER to name the key.
"  On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
"  Type DisableHyperlinkWarning, and then press ENTER to name the entry.
"  In the right pane, right-click DisableHyperlinkWarning, and then click Modify.
"  In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, click Decimal, and then type 1 under Value data.

THANKS for the help!

create the key on your pc and export it to a .reg file (right click, export)
then run the following 'command reg import file.reg'

Hey Thanks! Is there a way to load that in a script or bat file? Then I can make it run on login.

Just add the command into the batch file of your choice, it runs as is

ok I added

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\Security]
"disablehyperlinkwarning"=dword:00000001

to my bat file but it didn't add the key... is there anything else I need to add?
here is my login script bat file
Net use /delete f:
Net use F: \\server3\General
Net use /delete S:
Net use S: \\server3\SAN
Net use /delete L:
Net use L: \\server3\cadelaw
 
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\Security]
"disablehyperlinkwarning"=dword:00000001

No, you don't add the registry information to that batch file, you add the command lines we posted above.
So either the..

reg import <file.reg>

or the ...

REG ADD HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\Security /v DisableHyperlinkWarning /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

If you choose the .reg file method, make sure the .reg file you saved is in the same path of the logon script, or you include the full path in the command line.

So with my option your bat file would look like....
Net use /delete f:
Net use F: \\server3\General
Net use /delete S:
Net use S: \\server3\SAN
Net use /delete L:
Net use L: \\server3\cadelaw
 
REG ADD HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\Security /v DisableHyperlinkWarning /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Open in new window
