Found weird entries in Reg. What is this in my registry?enter image description here

Seems to be just corruption because the names don't look structured enough in my eyes. Either way you should definitely run a malware check on your system.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER is simply a link to the registry hive of the user that is currently logged on. To find this hive manually, navigate to HKEY_USERS and select the registry with your security identifier (SID) (to find out this go into command prompt and enter wmic useraccount get name,sid - it will be to the right of your username). Once in this registry hive, does it look the same as HKEY_CURRENT_USER? If not then it's most probably corruption. If it is the same then try logging in as a different user and checking HKEY_CURRENT_USER to see if the same, weird registries are there.

Even still, the there are no registries missing in your HKEY_CURRENT_USER that should be there, so I personally would just delete them.
