I want to make a script that edits the Registry of the user workstations
30 users = Win XP sp3
I am a VB programmer but have not ever tried to make a windows script
Objective1:  Desktop Display Proteries Window : Disable/Hide all tabs EXCEPT for 'Settings Tab'
Objective2: Place in a GPO to execute on workstation startup
I have confirmed that a manual entry of the registry works
Here are the registry parts:

--------  START SCRIPT  ----------------------------------
strKeyPath = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System"

strDWORDValueNameTheme = "NoDispThemesPage"
strDWORDValueNameDesktop = "NoDispBackgroundPage"
strDWORDValueNameScreenSaver = "NoDispScrSavPage"
strDWORDValueNameAppearance = "NoDispAppearancePage"

intDWORDValueData = 1
--------------  END SCRIPT  --------------
