ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It's been a while since I messed with Windows but that looks suspiciously like a script to allow somebody amdinistrator access to a compiter without the user being notified -- it could be just to automate administration for a genuin reason but it looks fishy to me.
deb22, if this is a serious question then tell us in your own words what each line of the batch file does, what the end results ("postconditions") are, etc. We can then tell you what the Linux counterparts are.
Do keep in mind that questions asking for help with hacking or exploits are against the rules.
Now, that said...
Something strange is going on. Someone with a completely different (but also female) name just posted the exact same question to Stackoverflow:
@debb22: please explain what is the intent of this batch file and why you have to convert it to a shell script. Until we clarify this code hasn't got a malicious intent, nobody here will help you. Nevertheless, as previously noticed, the code is strictly related to Windows and changes the Windows registry that has no counterparts in Linux.
