Malware & viruses are 2 entirely different things & a anti-virus program isn't going to detect or remove malware.
You need a program like Malwarebytes ,http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti...4-10804572.html
Download, install, run, & remove all it finds.
As for the registry, I only suggest working in the registry if you are willing to do a system repair , or clean install, if you mess up.
If you delete the wrong registry entry by accident or otherwise you can cause Windows to quit working.
