Okay, so my mother has a windows vista business (that's what it stays when it starts up) and it has this really bad virus on it. And it goes beyond my knowledge of basic computer stuff (sad, I know) and it is now displaying a message that says "illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion". It says that on the little status bar where it tells you if our internet is connected or not. And it is because our wifi is working and our modem says so. I can't click on anything. And it won't let me do anything. I've reatarted the computer like 6 times so far. I'm not sure what to do but I might have to take it to geek squad unless someone can help me. Geek squad is so expensive too . When I click on the Internet explorer button which is now a globe. It pops up the internet properties. It's crazy. And I know it all started because something called grillaprice was downloaded on to the computer some how.

Can you boot into Safe Mode with Networking....not just Safe Mode. If you can, whatever is causing the blocking may not

be active in Safe Mode and you will be able to download programs for finding and removing malware.


You can also try a system Restore to a date previous to being infected with the malware.

Buddy215, I can boot into safe mode with networking. And im really desperate 😭 I'll give you number! I need step by step instructions. Literally only 19 in college and I don't know how to do any of this stuff. I found this website some how and made an account to ask to get people to help even though I'm not even sure if that's what I was suppose to do... Really confused here. Geek squad is asking me to pay $300. They're ridiculous. I'll use the link and see what I can do. Please respond 😢.

Okay I'm doing the system restore now. Wish we could upload pictures 😞 but the last system restore is from today's date. It says there should a system restore from when the computer was first turned on and I'm suppose to have several of them but I literally only have one 😤.
