We have an active directory domain.

we have about 200 desktops.

we need to migrate from ADOBE READER 9.5 to ADOBE READER X

we need to have the ADOBE READER X have the
preference under GENERAL  called
Enable Protected Mode at STARTUP
UNCHECKED (turned off).

what is the easiest way to do that on all 200 desktops?

I've just learned that this is the wrong approach.

Instead of turning off protected mode,
we should
add a
FOLDER PATH
 entry to the
PRIVILEGED LOCATIONS

Full points for an ADMX
that adds
S:\
to all the ADOBE x machines for all users.

thanks
Phil

I did a change and capture the registry before and after then made .REG files to automate the change.
