SCCM 2007 Registry setting for current user not all users

We are using SCCM 2007 Version 4.00.6487.2000 with R3 installed. The remote SQL server is SQL 2008.

We are using DCM Desired Configuration Management to search for a registry key in current user to validate if a key is set to number 3 (enabled) for a COM add-in in Outlook. The problem is that when looking under configuration items > objects tab > edit registry setting > general tab > Click in the Key box area you get a warning that says: Per-user setting confirmation, this setting will be evaluated for all users on target computers.

Is there a way to ask SCCM to just check the registry setting for the user(s) currently logged in?  Cleaning up the profiles on the machines is a separate issue that we are also working on, but we need to check active users only in the meantime.

Yes thats a silly setting. Instead of using the registry key validation you can write a little script which can also be called during DCM Check and which will query that value.
To configure a script you must go to the "settings tab" and add s script
