For IE 6 and 7 we need for our pc's a script that easily will change the start page of the internet explorer to view a certain intranet site.

Also we would like to controll the adding of a folder to the internet explorer favorites to add some interesting urls for our users.

Please help.

For start page in IE. Check following keys in registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page ; That will fix page for current users only

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page ; This will be used when new user is created

That's how you can do it in AutoIt

RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main", "Start Page", "REG_SZ", "www.google.com")

For creating folders in Favourites with what you need check out directory:

C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Favorites

Just put dir with links in it and it should be visible for all new users created on computer. If you want to the links to be put for other users (that are already having accounts) you have to create a script that will go thru all directories in C:\Documents and Settings

and then for each user there check if Favorites exists if yes then it would put the files in it.

Make sure to exclude directory like: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users and C:\Documents and Settings\Default User (as i guess you will be taking care of it somewhere else in the script).

hope this helps.

Not sure what you're allowed to do but cant you just do it on one computer and take an image to each one... You dont need to write a program to change the homepage for IE just click tools and internet options and change it there or make a link on your Intranet site to make it your homepage.
