I'm wondering if there is a better way to migrate user settings when
transferring domains.

What happens is when we bring up a new client, we have to log onto
their computer (usually windows 2000/XP) as Administrator, copy all
their old profile info over into their new profile that was created by
logging onto the PC as their new domain account with our domain.
(hopefully its not too confusing)

This is very tedious and time consuming. And at the same time is
there a way to push some applications to their desktop? (such as VNC,
Citrix, etc) I'd like to automate this as much as possible so that
when I log into the computer as the new username from our domain, it
automatically does all this without user intervention.

if it sounds too confusing i'll try to reply with a better scenario.

Thanks in advance!
