I have literally hundreds of computers with the google toolbar in my network.  Our online CRM system requires us to place its url into the google toolbar popup exception list.  I am looking for a way to do this programmatically. Is there a registry key or an API to do this?

There must be a setting in the regestry for google?
But is Google installed individually on each computer?
This is just an idea that maybe you can go on

unless you have a group policy management console where you can access all the computers.
Hope it assist a little anyway.
Thank you

Google has an Enterprise version of the Google Toolbar that can be managed using GPO, including the Popup whitelist:
http://www.google.com/tools/toolbar/T4/enterprise/admin_guide.html

Or, if you want to do it yourself, the reg key can be found at
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Google Toolbar\4.0\whitelist]
