Startup script to add new toolbar on Windows 7

Everyday when I log in and other users as well we have to add a custom toolbar for Windows 7. Is there a way this  toolbar can be added when the computer is signed into with a startup script or any other way that will help without having to go select the folder the toolbar is located at. Thank you!

I have created a batch file that can create the taskbar toolbar and it will stay there. What you need though is to create the folder first then manually create the toolbar task bar on a PC, this is so you can obtain the registry data it creates in order to make the batch file.

Once you have done that navigate to here: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop

You'll need to obtain all the data from 'TaskbarWinXP'

Open notepad and copy this:

reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop /f /v TaskbarWinXP /t REG_BINARY /d "your data here"

@echo off
taskkill /f /IM explorer.exe
start explorer.exe

Put your data from your 'TaskbarWinXP' where I put your data here without quotations. Because its hex you'll need to do something like find all ',' and replace it with nothing, the hex code should look like 00230123ad023021302s0asd200 etc.. with no comas, spaces and all that.

The way its made is so that it restarts explorer in order to save the registry data, otherwise it defaults after shutdown and startup.
