    Automate clients local permissions over the network

    I have encoutered a few software problems on my new images sent out during the summer where students don't have the required permissions for certain bits of software, is there any method to automate a few folders security permissions, adding a group and settings their permissions rather then manually changing each computer?

    Do a batch file which runs a few xcalcs commands? (just set it as a machine gpo and it should be file), I would set it to create a text file so its easy to kill the script and doesn't attempt to keep redoing it.

    eg (pesduo code):

    If exist: c:\file.txt
    then do NOTHING
    else <run these commands>
    end

    Use group policy, there is a bit under system setting > security that lets you push out file/folder/reg permissions which is way easier to manage and deploy than scripting.
