This Regedit.com issue is a know indication you have a virus-worm. For
example the alcan.a worm, or the w32/Mugly.M (or Picrate.C) virus.

There have even been reports that neither Symantec (NAV) nor AVG will
necessarily find it, but Panda will.

I would immediately go to http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/ and do a
scan. Preferably with System Restore turned off.

Good luck.

Regedit.com is NOT a Windows system file. It might be a Trojan dropper;
Delete the file first, and follow-up with a complete virus scan. Try Trend
Micro's Sysclean package (free), it's capable of eliminating keyloggers,
trojans etc. Full instructions at:
