Try using something like Total Uninstall, take a snapshot of the machine

Okay this is what I have done.I can push out the little software app.
through GP.  It installs fine.  I can install the reg key through a
login script.  That works as well.

When I go to the website it still prompts me (user with no admin rights)
to install something.  

How do I determine what that is.

        I think I know what you mean - but I'm not sure. As I understand
it you have some license information you want to "force" onto you
clients. You'd need to know what registry settings are required (I's
guessing here) - probably HKLM as you describe it? This could be done
with Group Policy by using the RegToAdm tool (http://yizhar.mvps.org) -
if you have a REG file (or else export from the registry).


        Another option would be to use a Startup Script on the Computer
Configuration part of a GPO (maybe calling the REG file). Also, with
Group Policy Preferences (soon available for WS2003/2008 domains) could
do the job I guess.


        Please tell me if I misunderstood you question.

        I need to know if I am able to add a machine license using group
policy.  I have the information of the license where in GP would I add
it.  I do know that if I do not figure this out I will have to install
this with admin rights.  When there are alot of users granting admin
rights to all of them is just wrong.
