How to auto configure Microsoft Security Essentials

I am deploying machines via WDS, and part of the post image process is to install some applications via a script (simple BAT file).  I am able to get MSE installed just fine using:

\\10.255.252.1\bat\mseinstall.exe /s /runwgacheck /o

My issue is that I still have to go through each machine and configure MSE after it is installed.  I dont want to have to click on next and choose all the options.  

Anyone know how I can auto-configure, or just have MSE use default settings, once it is installed?

Finally found the solution.  

I am not scripting genious, and simple .bat files is all I know how to do.  So I am sure there is a better way, but this is how I got it to work:

I downloaded the MSE installer from Microsoft.  That is where I got MSEINSTALL.EXE from.  I run it using the command in my original post.

Next, I downloaded the definitions and the network analyzer (or something like that) from Microsoft.  Here are the links:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971606    <-- for the definitions
X86: http://definitionupdates.microsoft.com/download/definitionupdates/x86/nis_full.exe
X64: http://definitionupdates.microsoft.com/download/definitionupdates/amd64/nis_full.exe

I the install the definitions.  This is the second step of my MSE installation deployment method.
Command:  \\10.255.252.1\bat\mse\mpam-fex64.exe /s

Next, I install the network analyzer (or whatever its called).
Command:  \\10.255.252.1\bat\mse\nis_full.exe /s

And finally, the part I really needed, when MSE installs, it is basically in OOBE mode, which is why you have to accept the agreement and select some options.  The following command uses the SETUP.EXE from the program files location where MSE is installed.
Command:  "c:\program files\microsoft security client\setup.exe" /oobe /sqmoptin /m en-us


Summary of commands:
\\10.255.252.1\bat\mseinstall.exe /s /runwgacheck /o

\\10.255.252.1\bat\mse\mpam-fex64.exe /s

\\10.255.252.1\bat\mse\nis_full.exe /s

"c:\program files\microsoft security client\setup.exe" /oobe /sqmoptin /m en-us



After I put those commands in my .BAT file and imaged another machine through WDS, MSE was installed and I didnt have to configure it.  These machines will only be used for state testing at a school, so I dont need anything fancy or long term for them.
