Hi all,

I need to create a GPO that deletes the following registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PageSetup\header be blank
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PageSetup\footer be blank

Can you please help me out? We intend to delete the header and footer of IE7 over 170 computers.
