hey.  why should there be 'locked registry keys' on my computer?  i will not post the log file as per pinned request, but i did a combofix and the log shows some locked keys that (i am presuming) an attempted deletion failed to delete.  can someone please explain why this should be--and what i should be doing about it?  thanks so much in advance.

Well...can you tell us just what led you to run ComboFix?


ComboFix is a powerful tool used for malware situations, not system diagnostics...do you have or suspect that you have malware issues?
