My school's Windows computer labs get imaged every night, and all personal application settings get erased. I'd like to develop a script or method to quickly configure these settings, as they produce quite a click burden to configure every day.
For example, when I load Outlook on a lab computer, it takes 13 clicks before I can read email. Firefox takes 5. Adobe Reader needs me to accept the license agreement, and Stata wants to know if I want it to auto check for updates.
I was thinking I could carry a flash drive with a quick script or similar to set up all these preferences that I run when I log in to each computer.
Is there a tool to help accomplish this? Or do you have a better idea?
