What is this?


Something keeps generating it and subsequently I can't run a program.
Delete it, reboot and all is well but it keeps coming back.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TYPELIB\ keys are resource pointers that link back to a dll, typically. They are extensivly used in OLE.
OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) is Microsoft's framework for a compound document technology used quite a bit in Microsoft Office programs, but I suppose it could be used in other ways.

Can you ascertain when it recreates?

What program cannot run?
