I am trying to clean out my registry from adware files .... when I go to
"RUN" Regedit the registry editor pops up and quickly goes away. Is there
another way to edit the registry ... should I try it in Safe Mode?

Thanks in advance.

that's one of the many symptoms of trojan/worm/malware/spyware
infection.
Have you tried running your anti?virus, etc programs?

You should first try programs designed to do this for you before hacking
the reg yourself.

Your system is severely compromised, you should reinstall from scratch
and reconsider your click and surf behavior in the future.

Download, install, update and run all of the following.

Ad-Aware
http://www.pcbutts1.com/downloads/aawsepersonal.exe

Spybot search and destroy
http://www.pcbutts1.com/downloads/spybotsd14.exe

Ewido Security Suite Trial version
http://www.pcbutts1.com/downloads/ewidosetup.exe

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=321CD7A2-6A57-4C57-A8BD-DBF62EDA9671&displaylang=en

If none of the above fixes the issue then download Hijack this, run it, save
a copy of the log file and cut and paste it back here to this group so that
I can analyze it. Ignore anyone especially the troll Leythos, who will tag
along a nonsense post to this message, who tells you to post it elsewhere. I
need to see it not them.

There must be a virus in your computer.Try to change the name or type
of regedit.Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32 or C:\WINNT\system32,find the
regedit.exe.Change the regedit.exe to regedit.com,double click the
regedit.com,you should open the regedit by this way.
But the solvent is find the virus and delete it.Let Security Expert
help you.
Run Security Expert,go to tools -> process manage,find the backdoor
process,and delete it.Then go to tools->Autorun,find the startup
program of the backdoor,and delete it.The last,find the file of the
backdoor in your computer,and delete it.
Go to http://securityexpert.cnns.net/download/securityexpert.exe to
download the software.
You can make judgement of a suspicious process easily by this way:
1) Run Security Expert,click Security Tools->Process Manage
2) Choose "Hide windows' process" to help you to remove legitimate
process of system
3) Notice suspicious process with special color marked by Security
Expert
4) Notice whole route of the process is not in "program files"
5) If the process doesn't have information of companyname,the process
possible is a backdoor or a worm.
