For a piece of software we are installing we must edit the registry of all computers on our domain to allow full control for the domain users to the following registry setting:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > BORLAND

I'm a little confused by the articles I'm reading on how to do this in a script and wondered if anyone had a script for this type of permission change.

These are all Windows XP or Windows 7 computers that need changed.

Use GPO.  You can add keys, and specify the permissions for them.

Computer Configuration > Security Settings > Registry.
