Spyware - Registry entries

When I run Spybot it finds the following two registry entries which Spybot say's can't be removed as they are in use.
HKEY_USERS\5-1-5-19\SOFTWARE\FUN WEB PRODUCTS\SCREEN SAVER - Default REG_SZ Value not set

HKEY_USERS\5-1-5-20\SOFTWARE\FUN WEB PRODUCTS\SCREEN SAVER - Default REG_SZ Value not set

I have searched every where I can think of to find them. I have reluctantly deleted DCAT screen saver incase this was the offending program, to no avail.
I am loathed to deleat the entries without first find the source.

Please help

Or disable your screensaver and try again. Where did you get the screensaver?

Have already uninstalled screen saver and set screen savers to none. This was before I ran Spybot for the 4th time

To prevent unauthorised entries to your registry download ad run 'regprot' from:

click here

also use a reg cleaning program to remove enntries that have been made after you have deleted the screensavers causing the problem. Run AdAware, Spybot and CWShredder regularly to remove spyware.

I will NOT, repeat not download any file that has the extension .scr. It is almost certainly a virus or contains agressive script/spyware.
