Why does it say registered: Not to you, no longer? Does this mean someone hacked into my account or something? No strange activity has been going on. Do u think that maybe a program i installed just told it to change the registry info or something? Please help because i am very scared.

yes it looks like you have a script kiddie infestition. basically inept hackers. i reccomend gettiong a router if you have broadband internet connection they usually have a good firewall and will keep the script kiddies out. then you can change your info back with a regestry editor, x setup should work for you (you can even change that sony logo with a picture you want). i would run an antivirus program to check that they didnt do any thing else
