After ComboFix: Illegal Operation, Registry Key Marked for Deletion

Q: After ComboFix: Illegal Operation, Registry Key Marked for Deletion

Ok, so I'm working on a computer who's owner ran a program called ComboFix. Now, whenever you try to launch a program (say, Chrome, word, etc.) we're getting a popup that says something like "Illegal Operation Attempted on registry key marked for deletion."

I was thinking I'd have him restart the computer but "marked for deletion" makes me think this thing will not be able to reboot.

Let's troubleshoot this!

Preferred Solution: After ComboFix: Illegal Operation, Registry Key Marked for Deletion

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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 Dame1220Firstly, 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 hereSecondly, in regards to your issue. Reboot the computer again. That should set everything straight.~Blade

I told a friend about this forum. He ran malwarebytes on his computer and had 78 infections. Malwarebytes removed them, then he installed Service Pack 1. Then deleted McAfee (it had expired), then he ran combofix. It didn't fix anything, it just made a log file. But now, when he tries to open just about anything, including a restore point, he gets an error that says "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion". I can open the Task Manager and My Computer, but that seems to be about all. How to fix?

At least I was able to get his log file using a jump drive! He did this because a program called "Bearshare" seemed to be taking over his computer, and now I see at least 4 references to it in the log file.

I can open My Computer, and I see 2 files - $$DeleteMe.wmp.dll.01c82bcaf27e290.000 (10.1MB) and $$DeleteMe.wmploc.DLL.01c82bcaaf2a43f0.001 (7.77MG). The date on them is 9/3/2007. Would these have anything to do with the problem?

I was infected by a koobface virus and hundreds of spyware and trojans last week from my Face book account. I was able to download Paretologic Anti-virus and malware program it found a few applications that it deleted. My computer still acted funny and when I went to the koobface posting on the internet it suggested using Malwarebytes or Spybot. I downloaded Malwarebytes, ran it and it found hundreds of infections including 13 koobface viruses. My computer continued to run slow and accumulated thousands of cookies from MSN and Facebook any time I openend Internet Explorer. I wrote to Paretologic about the problem and they sent a link to Combo fix and said to download it directly to the desktop. I did that and ran the program. Combo fix said to let it run and that it would generate a log file which I could then send to someone to help me with the fixes. When I went to my email to do that as instructed by Paretologic, this message came up. Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion. When I attempted to use any programs, I kept getting the same message. I have not been able to use some of the recommendations by the Combo Fix website as it won't allow me to open Internet Explorer, the start, run program.

Please, if you've had this problem or know how to fix it, let me know. I am not super computer literate, but can follow instructions typed out for me.

Thank you!!

I also tried to run the .NET Framework installer and got the exact same message. I looked the error up and it's my understanding that it is a registry error?

Begging for help! This is also my first blog/topic of any kind, ever. I found a link to combofix, with instructions to only use it from your site. Very responsible of them, but the link bypassed all your warnings not to do it alone. Combofix did its thing, then I managed to restore my internet connection. The connection itself is there, and my icons are there, but I cant get online or do anything else. Nearly ALL my program icons say "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion."

The past week or so I had the redirect/ad coupon drop virus. I downloaded the 2013 AVG free protection to start, then my Google didn't work.

I finally restored the whole thing back a week or so, then it worked fine.

Hi guys,
Computer was randomly rebooting. Tried to install Malwarebytes but it said access was denied -- it couldn't write the file in the temp directory.  Went to your forum and you advised another person with same issue to run Combofix.  I ran it and it rebooted the computer, but all the programs I try to open now say "Illegal Operation Attempted on a Registry Key that has been marked for deletion."  I can't even open the File Manager to get a copy of the log.  I remember the Vid-Saver program was deleted by combofix.

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?

A:After Combofix, launching a program advises registry key marked for deletion

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.

I have CA a/v and had 117 threats removed. Was able to run all the windows updates, then tried to find more help on the internet because then I started receiving the error ' the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network.'

Viperware found tons of problems, listed under MyWebSearch, which it did not clean, so I used MBytes to fix them. When that was complete, I started combofix. When Combofix rebooted, I couldn't even log on to Windows because it said my Windows Activation had expired and I had to call Acer, which I still may do, but I want to get all of my files off before they say to do a restore (which I am assuming will happen). The only way I was able to boot into Safe mode is to reset the bios to 2004. Then Combofix resumed it final steps, creating a log, etc. I assume M-Bytes got rid of the problems, because it looks like Combofix didn't find anything that I can see.

Hi All

I have a question about Outlook Express. My daughter has a few e-mails that I was suspicious about. (the Klez virus). Her Norton is not up to date but we were able to delete these suspicious ones to the deleted folder. When I went to delete them out of the folder an error message came up saying "this has performed an illegal action and will be shut down" The only way to get out of it is to press OK and then it closes outlook.
She has Windows 95 and it is very slow. We did a virus check and nothing showed up.
The details of the message said:
MSIMN caused an invalid page fault in module INETCOMM.DLL at o14f:5ec2abaf.
EAX=0000000Cs=014fEIP=5ec2abf
and more along that line.
Any help you could give would be appreciated. We would really like to get those e-mails out of there. I know they won't cause a virus unless they are opened but it would be nice if they were gone.

It comes on after Win98 comes on, with a spotted colored flag with DW along side. Message is "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down If the problem persists contact the program vendor" In Details it says "caused an invalid page fault in module DWexe at 0167:0043122c

I can close it and be done with it, and then continue with whatever I like. But everytime I start the computer, there it is again.

I keep getting this message many many times a day!The message reads. Dw: This program has performed and illegal operation and will be shut down. DW.EXE. I also get the same message from RUMBLE. How can I fix this problem. I have been told I have too many windows left unopen, but I can get into them to close them. Was this cause by Kazza? Help!!!! How do I get rid of this problem?

First of all Welcome to TSG kelbal.

Follow this link and read through the thread.

http://forums.techguy.org/t113322/s2b439dcfda88490cb013fe9f1f390c79.html
Or search threads for the "DW.EXE" string.

This will give you enough information to remove the offending software that's causing the issue.

Hi, just joined. I use NetZero 4.3. Lately I've been getting a Zcast dialog box when I try to dial up saying this program has performed an illegal operation and must shut down. I sometimes have to make several attempts before I log on. I tried reducing acceleration to zero, but that didn't help. Any ideas? Thanks, Marty

Hiya and welcome

Have you tried reinstalling NetZero? Also, when the error comes up, click Details, and copy/paste the contents here.

Also, which version of Windows are you running?

Sounds like your TimeSink Adbot SPYWARE is corrupted.
I would STRONGLY encourage a look at http://grc.com.

Some spyware (masquerading as freeware) is malfunctioning. I would reinstall the suspect proggie then run grc's OPTOUT program to remove the spyware.

I'm no genius like the guys that moderate this, but I know wpyware when I see it!

When I click out of my Explorer and return to the desk top I get this message. Should I be concerned, and how can I find out what's wrong and how to fix it?

"This program has preformed an illegal operation and will shut down. If the problem persists, contact the program vendor."

Thank you...
 

A:Illegal operation

Those errors can be caused by many different things really and sometimes its caused by adware. If you would care to follow below we can remove that possibility..

Please get Spybot S&D to clear out any spyware.
http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=mirrors

Install the program and open it.

Before doing any scanning click Online and Search for Updates .
Put a check mark at and install all updates.

Click Check for Problems and when the scan is finished have Spybot fix all it finds marked in red.
Then after reboot:
Download 'Hijack This!'. http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

I have installed aol 6.0 and when I try to bring it up it tells me that it has performed an illegal operation, I click on more details and it tell me there is a problem with the kernell32.dll file, I searched for it and it isn't there. I went to Microsoft updates and I downloaded the kernell32 update and aol still won't start, IE works find although it is provided by America online, I don't know what the problem is, any suggestions.

I would appreciate all your help,

Hiya and welcome

Kernell32.dll errors can be down to spyware. Download AddAware www.lavasoftusa.com
Run it and ensure that all the boxes on the left are checked enabling deep registry scanning. You can remove anything it finds, except any references to Web3000. If you are unsure, you can post the details here.

What exactly is an illegal operation? Of late I have been trying to access to a certain web site (IFILM.com). Every time I do, I get the "this program has performed an illegal operation blah blah blah" and it says something about an error on the page etc... What is the deal? I have had this happen with other sites, just every once in a while but it sure is annoying. No hurry just any info would be helpful. Thanks Marji

VIEW CRITICAL UPDATES box popped up the other day and I updated whatever was already checked on the menu. One of them had something to do with Outlook Express, but I don't remember what it was. Since then, whenever I log onto OE, I get the message: THIS PROGRAM HAS PERFORMED AN ILLEGAL OPERATION AND WILL BE SHUT DOWN. When I press SEND/RECEIVE it just freezes, so I've been without email for a few days. Since I don't know what I "critically updated" I don't know what to take out. But when I view details, it says "MSIMN CAUSED AN INVALID PAGE FAULT IN MODULE MSOE.DLL"
I don't know what that means, and I hope someone out there will! Thank you!!! I'll just check back, because I'm unable to read my emails.
