I can't tell if they are files, Registry entries, locales, etc.

How about looking through the BitDefender logs and providing a snippet of the
logs(s)
pertinent to the problem.

These are registry keys for magnet links to p2p programs that use
various networks (for example: Kazaa Media Desktop, Limewire, Morpheus,
Shareaza, Bearshare, Xolox)

These keys may be used by malware to find installed p2p application and
spread files.
