Office 2010 Trusted Locations

I have a client with 200 desktop pcs and they've installed Office 2010 on some of them.  My application is a desktop app and also includes some Add-Ins for Office.  We are often getting support calls because our Add-Ins become non-functioning (disabled, unregistered, untrusted, etc - I'm not sure what the correct terminology is).

I've read the MS KB article describing trusted locations. Looks to me like this requires a Path entry in the HKCU hive of the registry.  Is there a way for a network administrator to push that out to all the desktops in the HKCU hive?

Is there a sample text of what that entry would be?  The KB article at one point seems to be saying that the path entry should be of type REG_SZ, but right below it seems to say that won't work and that it should be REG_EXPAND_SZ.  I'm sure I'm misreading it, but a sample screen shot or clarification would help.

Thank you.  Looks pretty straightforward.  I will pass this information on to the network admin at the client site.
