Windows 7 Default User Profile not applying all customized values

I am using Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 32bit

I have opened the ntuser.dat file for the Default User from C:\Users\Default

I have applied several registry tweaks to be applied to new users who are signing on.

Most of them are working however some of them are not... here are the ones who get changed back to default values when a new user signs on.



[HKEY_USERS\Test\Control Panel\Desktop]

[HKEY_USERS\Test\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics]


The above keys are the modified values, I want. Please ignore the Test part as that is just what I named the loaded ntuser.dat.

The values exist but get overwritten as first login. I'm assuming this is due to the customizations that are ran when this happens.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening.

I want to avoid running a script post sign in to change these.

Probably because that's not a suppprted method to modifynthe Default User profile....

Having a script run after first login might be the best bet, as first run customizations are done then....

if you have active directory infrastructure you can create group policy for custom registry settings or you can create administrative template and use gpedit.msc to configure local policy
