I ran the Combofix program and the program deleted 3 files and 1 folder. Immediately after the deleting folder message I received the following message in a pop-up screen -

Registry Editor has stopped working. Close the program

I clicked Close the program and Combofix began generating it's report. The same Registry Editor message appeared so I clicked Close again.

The report displayed and and the message appeared again. Once again I clicked Close and that was it,

My desktop appeared as normal. I shut down and started without any problems. Should I be concerned about the Registry Editor messages? Thanks

Well...some malware target the tegistry edit function.

I suggest that you follow the Preparation Guide, Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html
and then post your ComboFix log at the linked website for malware logs (do not post it in this forum).
