there are several spyware programs that damage the registry when removed unless you follow removal instructions for that particular software...cant be sure of all you have and what all may be a factor, i would suggest a booting in safe mode, try a system restore back to before it was installed then run adaware or spybot s&d which should remove the left overs.

Cool "Registrationery..."

I think that programs like RegEdit and Registry Cleaner are designed to fix problems like this. Do a Google search or something.
