I have a problem similar to this issue..... none of the personal information, just commonlities when I downloaded and ran ComboFix....... Please help, I need my computer asap, I'm an online student....Thanks so much

"I ran ComboFix because my computer had some serious virus. I found ComboFix through another site and did not see the disclaimer about using it under the instruction of professionals.

The virus i had before showed up on AVG as Trojan Horse Crypt.EML. However, AVG couldn't get rid of it. The site i found just told me just to run ComboFix and it would work.

Anyways, ComboFix ran fine and generated a log report.

However, now all my programs won't work and instead say "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion."

I have the log report and all other files generated by ComboFix if anybody needs them.

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium.

Can somebody please help me fix this???"

Hi Dame1220

Firstly, for the benefit of both you and others reading this thread, please take note of the following:

ComboFix (CF for short) is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for personal, unsupervised use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. When CF is run without trained assistance, it can no longer be considered a "safe" tool. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

You may find this topic to be informative - ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here

Secondly, in regards to your issue. Reboot the computer again. That should set everything straight.
