Need to configure logon script .bat & kix file to run the following on logon without prompting user. i need to configure this for two different types of scripts.

$error=addkey("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options")
$error=writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options"), "autodetect_proxy", "00000000", "REG_DWORD")
$error=writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options"), "proxy_host", "10.128.47.132", "REG_SZ")
$error=writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options"), "proxy_port", "1080", "REG_SZ")
$error=writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options"), "autostart", "00000000", "REG_DWORD")

..................

set regkey="[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options]"

%Systemroot%\system32\reg.exe add %regkey% /v "autodetect_proxy" /t reg_dword /d 0x0 /f

This can be done very easily via VBScript.. See attached.
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")	'Network Object
 
WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options\autodetect_proxy",0,"REG_DWORD"
WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options\proxy_host","10.128.47.132","REG_SZ"
WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options\proxy_port","1080","REG_SZ"
WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options\autostart",0,"REG_DWORD"

Well - what exactly do you still need to configure? Neither of the above scripts should ask for user input, and only the registry key in the batch script needs some correction; the brackets aren't necessary:
set regkey="HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options"

This script does not work, via kix file am i missimg something?

$error=addkey("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options")
$error=writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options"), "autodetect_proxy", "00000000", "REG_DWORD")
$error=writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options"), "proxy_host", "10.128.47.132", "REG_SZ")
$error=writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options"), "proxy_port", "1080", "REG_SZ")
$error=writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options"), "autostart", "00000000", "REG_DWORD")


you can disregard this script
set regkey="[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options]"
%Systemroot%\system32\reg.exe add %regkey% /v "autodetect_proxy" /t reg_dword /d 0x0 /f
%Systemroot%\system32\reg.exe add %regkey% /v "proxy_host" /t reg_sz /d 10.128.47.132 /f
%Systemroot%\system32\reg.exe add %regkey% /v "proxy_port" /t reg_sz /d 1080 /f
%Systemroot%\system32\reg.exe add %regkey% /v "autostart" /t reg_dword /d 0x0 /f

Sorry, missed this, but it's hard to see: you have a closing bracket directly after the registry key.
The addkey is unnecessary, btw.; writevalue will create the key if it doesn't exist.
$RegKey="HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Talk\Options"
$error=writevalue($RegKey, "autodetect_proxy", "00000000", "REG_DWORD")
$error=writevalue($RegKey, "proxy_host", "10.128.47.132", "REG_SZ")
$error=writevalue($RegKey, "proxy_port", "1080", "REG_SZ")
$error=writevalue($RegKey, "autostart", "00000000", "REG_DWORD")

Something you can also do is to edit the registry making it what you want, export the key. The use reg2adm http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tools/13885.html to create an ADM template. Toss that into your GPO and you're set.
