I have no reason to suspect that this Win7 PC is infected.
I always have realtime protection and updates running with Avira & Malwarebytes
This is what I get when I scan with Avira. (Heuristics set to default - medium)
I didn't run any repairs.

C:\Windows\regedit.exe
  [DETECTION] Contains suspicious code HEUR/Modified.SystemFile
  [NOTE]      The detection was classified as suspicious.
  [WARNING]   The file was ignored.

Ditto for these ......
