Regedit Logon Script via GPMC

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am wanting to create a policy that targets registry key path Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Name: Shell

Type: REG_SZ

Data: explorer.exe

I want so that the policy says the data for this is different then the default "explorer.exe"

I have looked at creating a GPO inf file however to my knowledge the sets pre-programmed in are primarily limited to those.

How would I go about this? what alternatives are there? Is it possible to create a .inf file to do this and have it be successful?

As I know that you can have a logon script launch for the user group that wll install these .reg files upon user logon and that will change the data for it.

Another question on top of this.

For the registry if I cannot use a gpo. For the logon script I will have it autoload "winlogon.reg"

Below is the .reg I just have it showing the shell

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]



Upon launching it you get "Adding information can unitenionally change or delete values and casue components to stop working correctly. If you do not trust the source of this informatino in "File Directory", do not add it to the registry.

Are you sure you want to conitnue?"

If I proceed with it will it just overwrite the previous data and nothing more?
