You can do it under:

Computer Configuration  or User Configuration => Preferences => Windows Settings => Registry

You don't need to schedule, because this will apply at every logon.

As awawada suggested you can use GPO preference to perfrom the same.In addition if your client computers are WinXP then for policy to work you need to update your XP clients to Group Policy Preference Client Side Extensions for Windows XP:http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=3628

First ask yourself where is this thing writing to. Computer Configuration  or User Configuration cannot both  be used for any branch of the registry. You would use C.Config for HKLM or HKCR and U.Config for HKCU based values.
