Hi, Compmom, and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

It sounds as though you might have some other infections. I think that the first thing to do is to submit a HijackThis! log in the Hijack forums of Bleeping Computer. First read the pinned post about "How to Submit a Hijack Log" here and then submit a log. It's always possible that the regedit file just became corrupted, but it's a good idea to see if the problem is malware related before trying to fix it some other way. Good luck!

Let OldTimer finish with your HJT log, before you try to fix anything else.

This way, we can eliminate the possibility of spyware/malware, being the cause of your
problem.
If this doesn't help with your problem, then post back here.

Looks as if OldTimer is taking care of you. He will get you fixed up.

It's not a good idea to post your hijack log in more than one thread. It just confuses those trying to help you.
