Registry Changes through a GPO

I am looking for some insight here as I am by far no expert in writing.vbs or .bat file scripts.  I have a situation where I am looking to add a DWord value to 2 seperate registry keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Preferences
DWORD: ExchangeAddressDetect
Value: 0
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\AutoDiscover
DWORD: DisableAutoStartup
Value: 1

I am looking to push this out through a logon script in a GPO however I have not had much success in doing this.  I am wondering if it has something to do with either the fact that it is a HKEY_CURRENT_USER vs a HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE or maybe it has something to do with permissions.  

I have created (let me rephrase, copied) a .bat file which looks like:
@ECHO OFF
regedit /s DisableAutoStartup.reg
regedit /s ExchangeAddressDetect.reg
cls

Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated as I am trying to meet a deadline.

Thanks,

So  notice you have 2008 listed.  Have  you looked at deploying your registry settings using group policy preferences?   You would not need the login script.
Thanks
