In my opinion, if GP will work for something you're better off going with GP. In my experience it is more stable then scripting, and your users will be blocked from changing the options back to the way they were.

Since GPO's push a registry change yes it is possible but not advised.  All you need to do is run gpedit.msc on a workstation and set the policies you want, see what keys it changes, export those and create a script on your targets.

In this case the keys you wants are :


The problem with making this as a registry poke is it is in the current users profile and you would need to do a deploy on every user on every machine to make this work or reimage the machines and either sysprep that down to default or edit defaults hive to make that change (http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/how-to-make-changes-to-the-default-users-hive-as-a-post-taks)
