Thumbs down Regedit Reboot Problem

When I attempt to edit my registry or use a program that needs to my computer reboots. I tried typing registry edit in Google and my computer reboots. I tried typing rgstry edt into Google and using "Did You Mean..." and my computer reboots. It's pretty frustrating, and I have no idea why it is doing this, I have gone to the admin properties in Safe-Mode and disabled "diable registry edit tools" or whatever it was called, I even turned off the option to reboot after a system failure. It still reboots if I even hint at attempting to mess with the registry. Please help asap, I am at a complete loss and tired of rebooting my computer testing to see if I have fixed it yet. If you don't have a solution, any reason to why this may be happening? I ran Ad-Aware Pro and did a full-system scan and wiped the infected files, reboot and tested the google thing but it still reboot after the words "registry edit" appeared on the screen, luckily I have a laptop as well so I can get on these forums to ask. Oh, running on windows xp (pro?). Thanks in advance everyone! >.<;

Are you serious or just being sarcastic? If the latter then it's not appreciated, but if you are being serious then I use Norton; however, it is outdated.

Have you tried using spybot to see if it helps
http://www.spybot.info/en/mirrors/index.html
or this http://www.ccleaner.com/ both are free downloads and ccleaner ha a registry repair program aswell., also download the trial NOD32 AV and run that http://www.eset.com/download/
It is not wise to use AV/FIREWALLS that are out of date you must keep those updated, there are plenty of free AV/FIREWALLS about COMODO is one http://www.comodo.com/
