1: Create yourfile.reg where you put in the registry changes, you'd like to make.
2. in CMD use
regedit /s yourfile.reg

This can also be used in a batch file in autostart.

To change Windows XP registry via command line, use THIS tool. Before you start playing with it, first backup the entire registry following THIS instruction.

No idea about how to change the homepage of internet explorer via command line.

I can't think of a legitimate reason for doing that. You aren't trying to do something sneaky, are you?

I know a lot of companies, who have a standard start page in internet explorer.
In the company where I'm working, we also have standard startpage for the internet browser, but we don't use IE, we use Firefox. IE is strikly forbidden!

The company standard start page entered my mind but I had to ask about the hijacking.

I'm thinkin' a standard start page for a company would be pretty easy to do...no need for some script.

If you are the admin and don't use Windows server with GPOs, it's sometimes helpful to do such things by using a script.

But you're right, one can use this for hijacking!
