How can I deploy a Windows 7 registry fix using "group policy"?

Can you define "Windows Registry Fix" a little better? Is it a .REG file? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 May 22 '11 at 22:11

If you are using Windows 2008 as your domain controller you can use Group Policy Preferences->Registry to modify the registry via GP.

Otherwise, you'll probably have to write a startup or log-on script (depending on which key(s) in the registry you need to modify) that applies the fix (look into reg.exe for modifying the registry from command batch scripts), and include that script in a GPO that's applied to the systems or users in question.
