Can you set up Content Advisor in the IE Admin Kit, lockdown all settings, and then just run the created installer package on each computer?
UPDATE (from comment below):
Download the IE Admin Kit here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=eb407001-7f6e-4ca1-8583-e91e69e872dd
It's pretty easy to use. Just download and install it and it'll walk you through all the various possible customizations for IE8. If you have IE8 installed on your computer already, you can even import the settings (such as the Content Advisor settings) you've already set there.
With this kit you can create either a full install of IE8 or just a setting patch installer that contains only the changes you've made, depending on whether or not IE is already installed on each target computer.
The kit is used by IT departments and anybody else who needs to create a standardized installation of Internet Explorer.
