Remove it from the wall, clean it, sand off the rust, remove any dust, and spray several coats of white (rattle can) spray paint on it.....done!

Krylon, RustOleum, either one is fine. Gloss is best for those kind of registers.

There is a reason for the rust and while the register is down possibly the cause of moisture in that area can be determined. With more pictures at that disassembled point possibly someone can see what the culprit is.
