Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

If you install MS Office (2010 in my case) and run up any of the programs (Excel in my case) for the first time you encounter the following dialogs:

The Username dialog for setting a default user name and initial for the user (I have already set them ahead in the registry)

Then the registration dialog - I have already registered it and have activated it through command line and last but not least another dialog trying to determine what file formats to use by default.

How do I go about setting this in the registry so it doesn't come up when I run excel for the first time?
