The following is a short list of the items. THKO.COM SPYWAREBLOCK.NET TUPTUO.COM SPECIFICPOP.COM TRACK-STAR.COM V61.COM SFUX.COM SHEAT.COM TARGETNET.COM ROISPY.COM YAHABAGS.COM TRIBALFUSION.COM UTOPIAD.COM and several others.
I'm not an expert, but I notice that you use Spybot and Spywareblaster, both of which have a facility to protect you against certain undesirable websites. As far as I know (please correct me, someone, if I'm wrong) they do this by adding certain items to the registry. All those items that you list look as if they belong in Spybot, or Spywareblaster's, website exclusion list. If that's the case, then by removing them you will have removed some of the protection provided by Spybot or Spywareblaster.
As I say, I'm not an expert - but you might like to check whether Spywareblaster's protection is still fully enabled, for instance, now that you've removed those registry items. And if you re-enable Spywareblaster's protection, do those items reappear in your registry (likewise for Spybot)?
[Extra thought: I see you also have Superantispyware, which can be configured to scan just the registry. Try doing that, and watch what it's scanning as the scan proceeds. At one stage you'll see a mass of entries being scanned, all showing up as something like abcde.com - just like the ones you removed - which I think are the entries put there by Spywareblaster and/or Spybot. Incidentally, if those items you removed were real threats, Superantispyware would have picked them up during a normal scan.]
