Open Notepad

Copy and Paste

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Cached Mode]
"DownloadOAB"=dword:00000000

Save FIle as something like OutlookDownloadOAB.reg

Then save this somewhere on a shared Drive that can be access by all users.


Then open another Notepad File

Add

@echo off

regedit.exe /s "\\ServerName\NetworkShareFolderPath\OutlookDownloadOAB.reg"      

Save as OutlookDownloadOAB.bat


Then all you have to do is add this bat file to all users Startup

And the registry entry will be added


One thing I would do though, is double check your source for that Registry Entry
There is not normally aa Cached Mode Continer in the outlook Folder

and the downloadOAB (Download Outlook Address Book) Value set to 0, would only disable the download of the outlook Address Book as 0 is usually the setting for Disable

So if your confident, by all means go for it

If your not so confident, use extreme caution
Last thing you want to do is a re-install of office on all users PCs because of a dodgy registry key pushed out to all users
