Before you make any changes to the registry, please back it up. An excellent way to do this is to install ERUNT. Let it add an entry to your Start menu during the install process. That will allow ERUNT to backup your registry each time you boot. It only takes a few seconds and has no real impact on boot time. Run ERUNT immediately after installing it to create a full registry backup.
KB890830 is the Windows Malicious Software Removal tool. Normally, it gets download, executed and deleted by Windows Update.
I don't see why it not being in the registry prevents you from running programs. Have you tried booting to Safe Mode then doing a System Restore from there?

XP would not run if rundll32.exe were missing. It should be in
C:\WINDOWS\system32 and C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache

Microsoft Word, Mozilla, Itunes and IE 7. Actually, I can get them to run, just not though the desktop shortcuts.
However, when I try to click on properties in MY COMPUTER, I get the following message
Windows cannot open this file:
To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically or you can select from a list of programs on your computer.
What do you want to do?
