Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Toolbar\GoogleUpdate]
"InstallTimestamp"=dword:4d60a755

To

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Paste the information into notepad and save it as timestamp.reg

Place the reg file on a share that can be accessed my the GPO.

Your reg file should contain

@echo off

Regedit /s \\path\to\timestamp.reg

Exit /b 0


You can check out ss64.com/nt/regedit.html for more info.

If you have single registry changes only, instead of a complete set, it usually is much easier to just code that into the batch:
@echo off
reg add "HKCU\Software\Google\Google Toolbar\GoogleUpdate" /v InstallTimestamp /t Reg_DWord /d tttttt /f

Open in new window

That allows for e.g. checking for specific values, adding some value, aso.
Regarding execution, just put the script into the NetLogon share and create an entry in GPO for Login pointing to the batch.
