You could make your own interactive M-x command called set-reg-string to prompt you in the minibuffer for a register name and a string to be stored in that register by adding this to your .emacs file:

  (defun set-reg-string (reg string)
    (interactive "cRegister: \nsString: ")
    (set-register reg string))

Or just make set-register interactive via advice.el:

(defadvice set-register (before interactive activate)
  "Now an `interactive' command."
  (interactive "cRegister: \nsString: "))

Or you could allow the user to enter any Emacs Lisp form (including
a string constant) to be evalutated, which is more congruent with
the original function:

(defadvice set-register (before interactive activate)
  "Now an `interactive' command."
  (interactive "cRegister: \nXValue: "))
