I've been googling all day trying to find the right solution for this. I've found bit and pieces but I haven't had any luck. I need the ability to change the security properties in the security tab of Internet Explorer with either a .bat, .reg or some other type of exe that will change them for me. I've got over 100 computer that need all the same settings and this would save me a lot of time.

Did you have an particular settings in mind? Adding systems to the zones is a bit different from modifying the zone settings. – Zoredache Aug 23 '12 at 21:53
If all systems require the same settings you should use Group Policies to set them. – John Gardeniers Aug 24 '12 at 0:37

This might help you. It's an explanation of the security zones and where the settings are stored in the registry.
