You should get Mark Hammond's win32all package either directly
 or as part of the ActiveState ActivePython release.  The win32
extensions "provide Python-level interfaces to a large number of
Windows libraries".  Mark has also co-written a book on how to use
them (see link above).  In particular, I believe the extensions wrap
the registry manipulation functions you need to do what you want.
