    Is it possible to call to a .reg file or load a reg file while in a DOS prompt? The issue I am having is that when a user logs into the network, their policies loads up a specified .reg file which restricts certain options in Windows and IE. It prompts you to press OK, but I would like it to bypass that. I was thinking if you could create a batch file to call/load the .reg file then they wouldn't notice it. If that isn't possible, does anyone know of a registry setting that will remove that? Thanks...

    For anyone who is having this problem I figured it out. You can run regedit.exe from a DOS prompt. The option you want to use is /S, which makes it silent. The syntax I am using is: "regedit.exe /s filename.reg". It works very nicely if you run it in a batch file and have windows load it at startup.
