To modify the default user hive, highlight the HKEY_USERS window and click Load Hive from the Registry menu. Select the Ntuser.dat file (usually from %windir%\Profiles\Default User directory). Type NTUSER in the Key Name dialogue box. Now you can add or modify any Key or Value within this hive. When you finish, highlight NTUSER and select Permissions from the Security menu. Add Read permission to the Everyone group. Check the "Replace Permission on Existing Subkeys" box and click Ok. Select Unload Hive from the Registry menu and exit Regedt32.

Copy the profile to a Default User folder sub-directory of the Netlogon
share on each domain controller ( C:\%windir%\System32\Repl\Export\Scripts\Default User ). Use Control Panel / System / User Profiles tab to do the copy. The Everyone group should be given permission to use the profile.

When a new user logs on, they will receive the default profile
