hmm :(
I know i can do it via gpo, but gpo is breaking staff so i would like to create a little vbscript to set those changes via registry. I have found some but not all of them :(

I think I am getting some light in this.
I downloaded Active Registry Monitor, took a snapshot of registry, made a change in IE and took another snapshot of the registry so I can compare it. And bingo, it is giving the reg key entries of the old entry and new entry. Also, as a reference this website http://networkdog.blogspot.com/2011/04/internet-explorer-9-configurations.html

namerg--Excellent reference.  Perhaps combined with Active Registry Monitor, you can determine the Registry values for Disable, Enable and Prompt.
I understand ARM still works in Win 7.

I am glad I directed you to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

Confirming what JCIMARRON said, for example:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

DWORD: CertificateRevocation = 0 ; to disable Certificate revocation.

Well, it looks like all the changes are being reflected on this key
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1875664707-4292556452-2117001115-15911\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

Also I learned the following:
The different values for Disable, Enable and Prompt are 3,0,1 respectively.

Thank you for your help,
