How to add a url to Google Toolbar Popup Blocker Exception List?

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

Google has an Enterprise version of the Google Toolbar that can be managed using GPO, including the Popup whitelist:

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]
