Resetting all users IE settings on RDS server

We have some RDS servers that users log into. They are all Server 2012R2. We notice that IE policies seem to be screwed up, presumably from GPOs long ago deleted still hanging over from their Server 2003 environment. Is there a way to reset IE11 to normal settings via GPO?

*** try before you do it in mass ***
To perform what the reset button does:

RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ResetIEtoDefaults

To delete all caches and settings “Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons”:

RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 4351

So far this seems to have worked. I won't know for sure until the main farm is used tomorrow. Thanks!

I need the reset button pushed for all users on some RDS servers. Does this "reset-command" need to be run for every user, or can i maybe do it from the console(s) after a "Change user /install"?

it need to run on every user.  So effectively, you can put this as runonce for any user who come onboard, OR something else.
