Installing Windows 7 in Computer Lab, Help With Profiles
I manage a computer lab at a school. We are currently using Windows XP, and we want to migrate to Windows 7. Students use their unique network ID's to log in. This means that every time a student comes in to the computer, he or she is a new user, as far as the computer is concerned. I need to set these machines so they don't ask all the first time user questions every time a student logs in. In XP, this was relatively easy. I created a default profile, and everyone logging in saw exactly the same thing.
With Windows 7, this is not so easy. I can still create a default profile, but settings specific to many applications do not get copied. So when a user opens Internet Explorer, he has to answer the set up questions, or he sees the "Welcome to..." screens that many programs like to show first-time users. I need to eliminate all of this.
So, how do I set up the environment so that when a user logs in for the first time, everything is already configured, and the software doesn't make him jump through a bunch of hoops?
