Hi
We use windows 2003/ XP as client  and  we have configured GPO in place.I have installed office 2007 on  all the client computers. All the users have the roaming profile configured. When they login to the computers and open the word 2007/ excel 2007 . They get  a dialog box

Welcome to the office 2007 Microsoft office system.

Privacy options

1)Get online help

2)Keep your system running

office can download......

3)Make office better

I found the below link  and i did the changes in the registry logged in as administrator and when i login as a user with GPO this window keeps popping up.Is it possible to  script  any commands in the batch file so that it executes when any user logs in  and stops the window from popping up.

You say GPO, but only talk about editing the registry. GPO's are configurations pushed by Active Directory, not just registry keys. A GPO will overwrite any registry changes you make if they configure the same thing.

Check out this Microsoft Technet article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc178978%28office.12%29.aspx , it has info on the settings & links to GPO tools. You'll need to add in the appropriate Office 2007 .adm file to your GPO's in Active Directory, but then you can force the settings via GPO to all your machines.
