Disable IE8 Customisation Page with Regedit

Sometimes on a Terminal Server you dont want that Splash Screen for IE8 showing as the end users cannot find which options to choose and start calling the helpdesk, so you choose to disable it for them.

This is simple with Group Policy if you have a Windows 2008 or Windows 7 PC but what if you are all Windows XP and 2003? Then you need a custom ADM or a registry edit to achieve this.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main

Reg Dword - DisableFirstRunCustomize = 1

The branches above will not exist in the Registry so you need to create the last two manually first.
