Remove this program as windows does not require such programs
and they may do more harm that good:
Registry Kit
For your USB issue, please firstly follow this tutorial and see if that sorts it out?:

Also I would suggest to Free up the startup/Disable Startup Programs
as there are an excessive amount of startup progs:

1. Click on the Start button
2. Type “msconfig" (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
3. Select the “Startup” tab.
4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus / essential items.
Apply > OK
5. Click the "Services" tab, click the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box, then click Disable All.
Click OK, then restart the computer.

Run these tests and post back results:

SFC to check the integrity of all Windows 7 system files:
  • Click on Start > Type in search cmd
    Right-click cmd after results are displayed and Run as Administrator
    Type SFC /scannow at the prompt
    (Note: There is a space between SFC and /scannow)
SFC Tutorial

Note   Note
Select option two. If any problems are found, run the scan 3 times and immediately
reboot the computer after each scan.

Also run chkdsk in an elevated command prompt in order to check for file system errors and bad sectors on your HDD:
  • Click on Start>Type in search cmd
  • Right click cmd and Run as Administrator
  • At the command prompt please type: chkdsk /f/r
    (There is a space between chkdsk and /f/r)
Chkdsk Tutorial

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
Tip   Tip
Run these tests overnight

Also please ensure you have the latest Windows updates installed.
