Global Color Scheme

I need to specify a different value for "selected items" in the color scheme, for all users of a terminal server.

I found in the registry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Control Panel>Colors it seems to be the Hilight option.  That can specify the color for the one user.  want to make the change for all users.  I thought it would work in HKEY_USERS>.DEFAULT>Control Panel>Colors but it did not appear to affect all users.  I did not restart the terminal server after making the change.

Any ideas?  Thanks

Why not have a logon script, or use Group Policy Preferences to apply this reg key to all users at logon?

We are trying to verify the correct regkey.  So far we've not found the solution, but we do agree with the idea of a GP Preferences.   It could be that the key i mentioned in the question is the wrong one.  Additional assistance would be appreciated.
