Windows 7: Automatic Action

Automatic Action

I'm not sure where to post this but I have a question that might be impossible to answer.

I have multiple computers and I want to do some AUTOMATIC actions for windows 7 on all of them. This goes from putting the same wallpaper, changing screensavers and changing power settings for about 20 computers a few times a month. It's getting pretty tedious. Does a program like this exist? Can it run from a USB key?

mostly all computer with home premium 7 and a few starter. I'm extremely knowledgeable so anything that has to be downloaded/installed/etc.. I can do.

I would really appreciate any help available.

Hey p357,
Welcome to Seven Forums!!!

Do all of these computers connect to one main server? Or do they connect over a router? And are they laptops or desktops?

Let us know,

Also, no problem is impossible to answer

all on the same router(wifi). All laptop and desktops with diferent setups but they are all able to run a program from a USB key. If you can do it over a network, then that would be nice.

The thing I would really like is if I could run a batch command(like the old .bat files) from a usb key to do everything in 5sec. Then I could move on and do the next PC. It's just the action that takes a while and it's tedious.

Thanks for the reply and hopefully you have an answer!

I've done it before using batch files and "regedit" but it's a bit long winded and takes a bit of time to set up but maybe a free utility like this might help
