>>> True if 'remove_me' in reg.read_key(r'HKLM\SOFTWARE')['keys'] else False
>>> reg.write_value(path, 'Value name', b'21', 'REG_BINARY')
>>> reg.read_key(path)
{'keys': ['test'], 'values': [{'value': 'Value name', 'data': b'21...
>>> reg.read_value(path, 'Value name')
{'value': 'Value name', 'data': b'21', 'type': 'REG_BINARY'}
>>> reg.delete_value(path, 'Value name')
>>> reg.delete_key(path + r'\test')
>>> reg.read_key(path)
{'keys': [], 'values': [], 'modify': datetime.datetime(2017, 4, 16...
>>> reg.delete_key(path)
>>> True if 'remove_me' in reg.read_key(r'HKLM\SOFTWARE')['keys'] else False
