All,
OK, I give up.  Anyone know of a way to push a registry entry via GPO/ADM
looking something like this:?

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\Toolbar\WebBrowser]
"{01E04581-4EEE-11D0-BFE9-00AA005B4383}"=hex:81,45,e0,01,ee,4e,d0,11,bf,e9
,00,\
  aa,00,5b,43,83,10,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,01,e0,32,f4,01,00,00,00
"{0E5CBF21-D15F-11D0-8301-00AA005B4383}"=hex:21,bf,5c,0e,5f,d1,d0,11,83,01
,00,\
 
aa,00,5b,43,83,22,00,1c,00,00,00,00,00,06,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00
,\
  00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00

I've downloaded Alan's tool, will gladly pay the $50 if it will do
something like this, but it didn't allow me to put these binary strings.

These, btw, are prefernce settings to remove the AddressBar from IE6.  I
tried using a policy called NoAddressBar = 1, but it was not consistent,
perhaps conflicting with other GPO settings we have.  So I used REGMON to
capture which registry entry was being modified when I turned off/on the
Address Bar (View/toolbars/AddressBar).  Now I just have to figure out a
way to send this via GPO.

Any and all ideas would be very much appreciated.
