I ran Rkill on a lenovo x220, then ran Combofix.  I failed to see that the Lenovo Toolbox was open, which may have interfered somehow with Combofix.  After Combofix finished, I then attempted to run the Malwarebytes Anti Malware, and received an error message stating "Illegal operation attempted on registry key that has been marked for deletion".

 

I cannot launch any programs, including a system restore.  Any suggestions?

The "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion" message is not a ComboFix or Malwarebytes specific problem. It happens from time to time on Vista and Windows 7 computers when a security tool deletes files and registry entries that require a forced reboot. Another reboot should take care of the issue.
