Batch Login Script - Update default homepage

Is it possible via some login script to look and see what the user have setup as their home page?  If the default homepage is as followed then replace it with as followed?

Example default homepage is.
http://intranet/
replace with if it matches to
http://intranet2/
If no match then add http://intranet2/

There could be multiple default home pages, so only want to look if it matches the url before updating and if does not match then add.

Could this be done via batch script?

BTW I am looking at adding this under the "Secondary Start Pages" under the user's registry.

Try this; it's in test mode; remove the uppercase ECHO in line 29 to write the new value back to the registry.
@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
set OldPage=http://intranet/
set NewPage=http://intranet2/

set Key=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
set Value=Secondary Start Pages

reg.exe query "%Key%" /v "%Value%" >NUL 2>&1
if errorlevel 1 (echo No 'Secondary Start Pages', leaving ...&goto :eof)

for /f "tokens=5" %%a in ('reg.exe query "%Key%" /v "%Value%" /se ^, ^| find.exe /i "%Value%"') do set OldList=%%a
echo Old list: %Oldlist%
set NewList=
set ListUpdated=False
for %%a in (%OldList%) do (
	if /i "%%a"=="%OldPage%" (
		set NewList=!NewList!,%NewPage%
		set ListUpdated=True
	) else (
		set NewList=!NewList!,%%a
	)
)
if /i %ListUpdated%==False (
	set NewList=!NewList!,%NewPage%
)
set NewList=%NewList:~1%
echo New list: %NewList%
ECHO reg.exe add "%Key%" /v "%Value%" /t REG_MULTI_SZ /d %NewList% /s , /f

Thanks.  This is not writing to registry for some reason even after I removed the "ECHO" in line 29.

Weird it didn't work at first, but seems to be working now.  So if there's no Secondary Start Pages, instead of going to end of file, can we create that key and continue?

The other issue is that it'll keep adding the new URL everytime I log in/out.  Is it possible to not added if it already exists?
