There's not a lot of hard information online about the correct way to make User Profile 'X' into a new default profile.

Getting a new user-profile configured properly is simple enough. What I'm having problems with, is making that profile the new system default, so that ALL new user-profiles created thereafter end up with all the same settings.

I'm a PC tech and I can do this easily in XP, but the XP method doesn't work in Vista. And a quick Google seems to indicate that not too many folk are aware of a method that DOES work. There are a lot of opinions, but nothing I've found so far has been 100% workable.

So, does anyone here have a simple and succinct walkthrough for this process? Like, have you personally tried (not just read about) a method that works? As I said, I'm a tech, but I'm not a programmer or a vbs guru, so I'd prefer something that's straightforward.

Thanks :-)
