problems with registry key

6 posts in this topic

i want to set about:blank as my start page with a smal script. i've found a key under HKEY_USERS\S-X-X-XX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXX\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main. i want to run this script on different machines so the part with S-X-X-XX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXX doesn't help me very much. is there any variable which i can set instead of this long part? or is there any other way to set the start page?

Search the registry for that part, and you will most likely find it in better

named key somewhere.. You can then make your script read that key,

and then fill that information into the RegWrite. That's easy, mkay ?

HKEY_CURRENT_USER is simply an alias to the subtree in HKEY_USERS that corresponds to the currently logged on user.

But I think the name of the key is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page.
