  1. When creating an image for deployment I like to apply settings to the "default user" registry. This means when a new user account is created these settings will apply to the new user. In particular I would like to remove the E-mail startmenu entry that gets created on first login. Unfortunately reg editing the registry path for default user does not apply on new user account.

    I can run a reg script (below) after the user has logged in which removes the E-mail startmenu item. However if anyone happens to know a way to stop this happening in the first place please share.


    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Cached]
    "{2559A1F4-21D7-11D4-BDAF-00C04F60B9F0} {000214FA-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} 0x401"=hex:01,\


  2. Thanks ricktendo64!

    I made this simple batch to automate the process as part of my pre sysprep cleanup script.

    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Setup\UserOptions" /v "DesktopShortcut" /t REG_SZ /d "no" /f
    reg load HKU\ZZZ "c:\documents and settings\default user\NTUSER.DAT"
    reg add "HKU\ZZZ\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Setup\UserOptions" /v "DesktopShortcut" /t REG_SZ /d "no" /f
    reg unload HKU\ZZZ

  3. Hi everyone

    I am running sysprep and deploying image. On creation of new user account an icon on the desktop and startmenu is created for windows media player. I do not want the icon on the desktop to be created. I hope someone can help which entries to modify under wmp.inf.


    PS - Since it is my first post I will wait for the moderator to unblock me then I will upload file ^_^
