Windows 7: Full Registry Error, need some help!

Windows 7 Proffessional edition x64
Full Registry Error, need some help!

I`ve been using this PC for over 5 months. From the beginning everything was OK, I was downloading and downloading programs, games, etc. About a month ago I stopped (after almost getting all my data eaten by a Trojan, MalwareBytes saved my ass) . Now, I want to update a game or anything else, And I get this error -
Error creating key in registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\(name of game or programm)
RegCreateKeyEx error 1450
Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service
Nothing can get installed, even a registry cleaner (Haha, irony)
I already read enough, I went into regeditor, Ive checked everything, deleted some registry entries of programs that were deleted a while ago, but this is still not working. I have no idea what is this, I dont know how to check my registry size. This is annoying the hell out of me
Until further notice, thanks for help in advance.

Once you have virus, malware, trojan, etc; do a full scan and removed /delete them.
If you want to try another which did help me to clear 200+ virus/malware, etc; from my friend computer.

SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

Decision is up to you.

Before you made any changes in the registry, do export full registry, and add the " .txt " behind the .reg
Also if you intend to made changes on 1 group of item, do export the selected group and add .txt
By adding .txt behind the .reg as a fail-safe to avoid accidentally addition.

My suggestion is to avoid touching the registry.
A careless change to the operating system configuration in the Registry could cause irreversible damage.

To avoid further damaged to the computer, do uninstall the game first, then reboot, finally install the game.
When you are installing any program /application, do watch the process, as if there is any other software included.
Most program do come with unnecessary and unwarranted software, which may be hidden Trojan, as most do.
Also need to go to Control Panel --> Uninstall a program; that is to review any other program not install by you or unknown.
You required to ensure your Firewall is secure, as that AV is not enough to protect you.
It is better to look for a better Internet Security program as an additional protection.

If you are having program to uninstall program, you can download MS, and use it to uninstall program that is difficult to uninstall.

Do use google to look for solutions, as an example in the next link;

windows - System error 1450 has occurred. Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service - Stack Overflow

Do read and understand before proceed.

In addition to Eric's suggestions you may also find it useful to run the Registry and Windows Installer sections of this Windows Repair freeware. Before running it make sure the Registry backup option is enabled. It has an excellent registry backup tool that uses shadow services to back up all registry hives even though Windows is running.

Can you do a restore to a restore point back when you began to install those pirate and infected programs?
If not, I'll suggest to start over from scratch. Save your data on an external disk and do a Clean install, deleting all partitions.

Questionable games, infection plus manipulating the registry all put together leads me to believe a Clean Install is needed.

This computer has been so compromised patch work to repair this system would be useless in my opinion.

Please note: Malwarebytes is not a anti virus program.
It is as it's name implies, a anti malware program and does not replace a proper anti virus program but works along side other security programs.

Also keep in mind if someone is downloading games, movies and or programs in a illegal fashion their is no security programs going to protect your system.

If you are unsure how to re-install the Windows 7, suggest you to visit to the shop that you buy the computer from.
As it is still under warranty, as most shop do the installation, if nec.
Do have some free time to watch the shop staff on re-install Windows OS and learn from them, ask questions, if nec.

Once you have re-install, do a clone &or image the hard disk in case of such issue happen again.
Lastly, it is better to do windows updates to get the critical & important updates done.
Also do install free Internet Security, not sure, then ask.
Before install any program, it is also better to create a system restore point, as mentioned by Megahertz07
For all these procedure, you can post it here so that we can assist you.
Take one step at a time, not to be too rush to use.
