Is there a way to uncheck mark the box for enhanced pointer precision for all users on a server?

    The registry key for that is:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse\MouseSpeed

    1 = Checked
    0 = Unchecked

    You can either use a logon script or a GPO to apply the registry key for the users when they log on to the server.

    Also one thing I noticed about this particular registry change is that after it is applied, the user needs to log off and log back in once for change to apply.

    Thank you for responding. The problem is that I have 60 servers and 15 users and I dont want to log in to every server as every user to change the enhanced poibnter precision. Is there a registry key to change for every user so that it is off?

    No, this is a per-user based setting. As I mentioned you can use a GPO or a script to update the registry anytime someone logs in, so you don't have to log in to every single server but the script runs every time they log in and changes it for them automatically.
