Windows 7: How to do global commands

How to do global commands

I recently installed a screesaver that, after 15 minutes of inactivity, The screensaver displays a warning and 60 seconds later issues a log off command. Have seven standard user accounts and had to install the screensaver in each of them. Can I do this globally so that I only have to do it once.

The computer in question is using the 64bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium.

As far as I know it the only way to do it would be to change screensaver settings in default user profile (C:\Users\Default) which is used by Windows when creating new user profiles. For existing users you need to do it manually for each account.

The official method to copy settings to default profile can only be done when no user accounts exist i.e. during the installation using built-in administrator account or later by deleting all existing user account. Tutorial: User Profile - Customize During Installation

An unofficial method when user accounts already exist is described in this Microsoft Answers thread: How do I customize the default user profile in Windows 7? - Microsoft Community

Are commands followed?
I have two files LXDUwbgw.exe, and lxduwbgw.exe. in two different folders. For brevity, LXDU is in Folder A and lxdu is in folder B. IF, a program goes to Folder A and asks for lxdu will it take LXDU or nothing? Thanks Sic

Run commands remembered ?
Is there any way to get the Run box to remember commands ? For instance msconfig, regedit. Each time the Run command box is opened all previous entries are gone and it's blank. Small thing maybe, but when I'm constantly fiddling it saves typing.:rolleyes:
