  • configuring clients StartMenu Start_ShowNetConn ... via scripting in a rollout

    HI all...

    I have a request from a client, to write scripts/batch files to configure the start menu parameters for a bunch of boxes (say.... 5000) so that a couple of the Start Menu settings are set to "their" preferred configuration. (YES -- I know you can do it with GPO and Systems Center...) but the client stubbornly wants it their way.

    So, I found all the hooks for
    "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ex plorer\Advanced"
    with regard to Start_ShowMyDocs, Start_ShowRecentDocs, Start_ShowNetConn, NoStartMenuNetworkPlaces, Start_ShowNetPlaces, Start_ShowPrinters

    but can't find "Clear", "Uncheck Internet Explorer" or "Uncheck Outlook Express". I know I can uninstall them; but I gather that isn't what the client wants.

    I looked into Sysocmgr.exe, but havent' unwound it yet. I do know that watching the registry while this is being changed : Start-Properties, Customize, ... Advanced... changes stuff... but I don't see these three items.

    Somebody want to take pity on me and point me at it?

    TIA
