comment Disable “Automatically detect settings” in IE proxy configuration
Though using someone else's registry settings is a bad idea for this unless you want their entire proxy server settings too, so you'll want to save your own registry setting out.

comment How to enable desktop background options
@ProfKaos The registry settings that the Group Policy editor causes to be set might still have the same effect in XP Home, even if you can't set them that way. I'm not sure, I don't have Home here to check.

comment How do I replace the stupid Windows XP dog assistance search with the classic Windows 2000 search?
Updated my answer with the additional preference change to skip the initial 'what do you want to search for' dialog.
