There's a lot of different things that can be wrong with a registry and there's really no "one stop shop" for registry fixes. What's goin on with the PC?

Don't know, just installed some new parts and ran Malware bytes and it said something about registry values.

Could you be a little more vague...

If you ran MalwareBytes and it found registry values that were malicious, this is not exactly something to be overly alarmed about. A lot of Malware will corrupt the registry or create malicious values. I would actually be glad that it caught it. The question is, however, if those values were created maliciously, or if there were maliciously changed and are now gone. The only way to really tell is through your normal day to day use. The "Win 7 Antivirus 2012" program (fake antivirus malware) will modify the registry values to point all executibles to launch through that program. MalwareBytes will delete these values (which are the ones that handle executibles) so when you try to launch any program after the malware has been cleaned, Windows has no idea what to do.

Any issues like the above?

Well, it's a good thing you ran a scan. Those weren't existing values that were modified but there were newly created malicious keys. However, those were created by some program that's probably still on your PC. I noticed that you're running MalwareBytes 1.51 and 1.60 is the current version. I would download the latest version of rkill, rename it to some random word (some malware is programmed to stop the rkill.exe from being run) and then run that. Update MalwareBytes and run once again.

I just got back to my computer after using a cell phone all week. My monitors now feel indescribably huge.
