This code uses pywin32 and the _winreg module to get some vital information about the system the script is running on, including OS version, installed browsers and free space on the main HD.

Enjoy

Calling ctypes like that is wrong. The way you are calling GetDiskFreeSpaceEx is very wrong, since not only you don't check return error code, you are relying on the fact that SystemDrive environment variable only has ansi characters (otherwise unicode(...) won't work), which is true these days, but who can tell about future? Plus your code won't work on Win9x, since they don't have unicode versions of this function. The better (imho at least) way to wrap such native functions is like below:

import os
import ctypes

try:
    GetDiskFreeSpaceEx = ctypes.WINFUNCTYPE(ctypes.c_int, ctypes.c_wchar_p, ctypes.POINTER(ctypes.c_uint64), ctypes.POINTER(ctypes.c_uint64), ctypes.POINTER(ctypes.c_uint64))
    GetDiskFreeSpaceEx = GetDiskFreeSpaceEx(('GetDiskFreeSpaceExW', ctypes.windll.kernel32), (
        (1, 'lpszPathName'),
        (2, 'lpFreeUserSpace'),
        (2, 'lpTotalSpace'),
        (2, 'lpFreeSpace'),))
except AttributeError:
    GetDiskFreeSpaceEx = ctypes.WINFUNCTYPE(ctypes.c_int, ctypes.c_char_p, ctypes.POINTER(ctypes.c_uint64), ctypes.POINTER(ctypes.c_uint64), ctypes.POINTER(ctypes.c_uint64))
    GetDiskFreeSpaceEx = GetDiskFreeSpaceEx(('GetDiskFreeSpaceExA', ctypes.windll.kernel32), (
        (1, 'lpszPathName'),
        (2, 'lpFreeUserSpace'),
        (2, 'lpTotalSpace'),
        (2, 'lpFreeSpace'),))

def GetDiskFreeSpaceEx_errcheck(result, func, args):
    if not result:
        raise ctypes.WinError()
    return args[1].value, args[2].value, args[3].value
GetDiskFreeSpaceEx.errcheck = GetDiskFreeSpaceEx_errcheck

print GetDiskFreeSpaceEx(os.getenv('SystemDrive'))

GREAT PROGRAM.

_winreg has changed to winreg!
