You can setup a prefs.xml file that has the default settings you want
and the install that in COMMON_APPDATA\purple\prefs.xml. You can find
the COMMON_APPDATA folder by typing this into Start->Run (note the
space): shell:Common AppData

Keep in mind that this file is only read when the user doesn't already
have a prefs.xml of their own.
