Applying VisualFX Settings through the registry

I want to disable the VisualFX settings in windows on our Domain through GPO,
I found the reg entry but the windows api doesn't detect the new settings
after the registry change. Here's the key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VisualEffects]
"VisualFXSetting"=dword:00000002
Value 2 is for best performance.
How do I let windows 'read' the new registry entries and make the necessary
changes? Rebooting and logging on and off doesn't do it.
