Here's the .reg file I've used, although it seems the timestamps cause problems when the difference between them and the current date passes a certain point. Maybe there is some way to generate those timestamps to be the current time when a new user logs in for the first time.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\LinksBar] "Enabled"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] "AlwaysShowMenus"=dword:00000000 "IE8RunOnceCompletionTime"=hex:d6,a2,2b,8d,60,b1,c9,01 "IE8RunOnceLastShown"=dword:00000001 "IE8RunOnceLastShown_TIMESTAMP"=hex:fc,71,f4,6f,60,b1,c9,01 "IE8RunOncePerInstallCompleted"=dword:00000001 "IE8TourShown"=dword:00000001 "IE8TourShownTime"=hex:22,d2,aa,02,6c,a9,c9,01 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows] "PopupMgr"="yes" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PhishingFilter] "EnabledV8"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Suggested Sites] "Enabled"=dword:00000000
The stuff in the "Main" key (except the "AlwaysShowMenus" value) is what you'll need. The rest of this .reg file enables or disables other stuff.
