Is there a script or a set of commands to set Windows performance settings to 'Best Appearance / Best Performance' and customize some of the options? I would like to set to Best appearance, then 'uncheck'/disable some of the options.

For example, I can run rundll32.exe dwmApi #104 to turn off transparent glass option. I would also like to disable animate on maximizing and minimizing windows.

exactly, but it doesn't seem to work on all settings. Is there something I can do to refresh the registry w/o rebooting?

The registry is set immediately. You can try restarting explorer, but some settings require the reboot.

Even if I do this, some of the settings don't get changed..

%SystemRoot%\System32\RUNDLL32.EXE user32.dll, UpdatePerUserSystemParameters
