    The other day this warning popped up and has popped up several times since then, any idea if this is legit. I can close it & it might or might not come back right away. I have not opened the links suggested because I don’t know if that would or could wipe out my PC. Never seen this before and this PC is 4 yrs old with New SS HD 1 yr ago, new video card 6 months old. The only thing that is old is the MB & Processor,

    Motherboard:
    ASUS: M5A87 Ram 12GB
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 445 Processor, 3100 GHz,

    This is the message, any ideas to what do I do with it?

    sure it sounds like a real error. regsvr32 is the command line editor to update the registry.

    What I would be concerned about is what program is trying to update your registry. I would start by scanning your computer for viruses to make sure it isn't some malicious code. After that I would try restoring your computer to a restore point prior to when the problem started (from Windows Start search for "system restore").

    I have AVG so that shouldn't be a problem. I did decide to try to restore it but tried the latest restore which was Dec 19 did not restore so I went back & now I don't have Dec 17th so I went for the oldest & it didn't restore so I just thought I would wait and for whatever reason since then the problem has vanished. So what ever Restore did or didn't do it has stopped the message????? Several days now & still OK. Aren't computers wonderful how they mysteriously work at times. Like going to the Dr & the pain is gone before you see one.
