screen color script

In a teaching environment students will find ways to alter system variables making it confusing for the next class that comes into the room. I have students run a script file I created that makes many changes such as cursor size, object snaps off, etc. Is there anything I can add to my script that sets the Uniform Background color and cursor color? I find it helpful to have all screens looking the same for beginning students. I know how to change the colors through Options, but would like to have the settings corrected as soon as they run the script file I give them.

The script can be extracted on this page for either black or white background

Just a brain storm, I haven't tried by myself.

How about set up a standard profile and every time AutoCAD starts from there?

I would reset my profile too.

It's easier and would reset everything, make sure you will not miss anything.
