Don't do anything in the registry, you can destroy the system. I see you have Eset6, read this, TCP Flooding Attack

Are you by chance using a Nvidia video card and using their drivers? The driver updater used to make a user account for updating if I recall. Not sure it does anymore, I use and ATI card now.
