How do I disable the "Help Protect and Improve Microsoft Office" window the first time a user opens Office 2010 after install. I do not want the end user to have this option.

To disable the dialog, set the policy setting found under Office 2010 --> Miscellaneous --> Suppress recommended settings dialog.

Can this be done using the OCT? I want to push the install via a script with no user prompts whatsoever, even when the user opens any Office app for the first time.

This has been solved. KB929767 deals with Office 2007, but the fix is the same using the Office 2010 OCT.
