You could change it via registry key here:



from start > Run > GPEDIT.MSC
Find "Administrative Templates", drill to "Windows Components", "Internet Explorer"
Double click on Internet Explorer to get a long list and locate "Prevent Performance of First Run Customize Settings"
Right click, select properties, and set to "Disable"
Click on Apply, OK, and exit Group Policy Editor

It is not a tutorial (in my experience), just set up variables. The fastest and simplest way is to just answer the questions as the settings need to be established anyway.

By the way, the top of your post says XP Home, so I assume this is not a company environment, and it cannot be a server environment as XP Home does not connect to a domain. ... Thinkpads_User
