I don't know how to do this in C# but if you look into what Magical Jellybean Keyfinder does (it uses definition files that are pretty easy to read) you could find where MS hides the magic sauce, erm, keys in the registry.

The Keyfinder can change keys as well, so if you're just looking for how to do that, give it a try.
