Windows 7: Scripting to change parameters

Scripting to change parameters

Hi There!

As a reseller we commonly end up looking at MANY MANY computers, often customers might want to bring in a PC they bought elsewhere and will ask us to configure it for them. There is a reasonably long list of things which we want to do on every PC regardless of it's original configuration and so I wanted to know if it was possible to do these with a large powershell script and or some registry hacks:

Things like:

Ensuring that under folder options, details is set as the default view, run window in seperate process, show hidden files, show extensions, change IE tt use google as the default search, enable menus in IE, change the default homepage to, display full path in address bar, and various other things. Is this best handled with Powershell under Windows 7/Vista? Can the registry be safely modified with Powershell ?

Any assistance gratefully appreciated. If you know what these commands are, please feel free to provide them.
