I just ran ComboFix and when it was finished clicking on programs and even the control panel causes an alert that says
"Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion". What do I do?

Spoke too soon. Restarting solved the issue. Good thing!

You shouldn't be running Combofix unsupervised.
