Q: Downloaded combofix now get message "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion...eeeek

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???"

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.)

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!!

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.

My computer has been slowing down considerably and keeps losing its internet connection. Then I started getting the error ' the account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running the same process.'

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.

However, NOW I cannot open anything, or move anything because I get the error "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion." This error comes up for all files, not registry keys. (UPDATE: I rebooted - what did I have to lose? - back int... Read more

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.

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.

RELEVANCY SCORE 80.8

Hi,

I am unable to open Internet Explorer 6, as I am getting "Internet Explorer has performed an illegal operation and will be closed". I am using window 98.
I think it is due to any trojan or spyware. Can anybody help.

This is creating a lot of problem for me as I run a small business. I would really appreciate any help. Thanks

I have been getting an error message "You have performed an illegal operation. This program will shut down." when printing from different applications (Quick Books Pro, Quattro Pro, Excel, Internet Explorer ...) This happens anywhere from on the first document printed or after printing up to 15 or 20 successfully. In order to print from any application again I have to reboot. Before rebooting I have checked the printers and there are no printers listed! I have a local HP Deskjet 712C and a networked HP LaserJet 5000 installed. My OS is Windows 98.

A:illegal operation message constantly

I've had a computer for 6 years and have never gotten a real (consistent) answer to what this "illegal operation" is. The best answer I've gotten is "it just a computer thingy".
Someone recently told me she was not using her computer because a message came up and told her she was ILLEGAL and she didn't know what she was doing wrong and didn't want to take any chances.

I usually figure it means there's not enough memory or something is clashing (though I believe this is what a BLUE SCREEN is) or not right (somewhere) at least at the time. With my first computer I would get it when I tried to copy and paste too much at one time.

I don't know much about it, either, but I don't think it has anything to do with what programs you have in or not. It just seems to come at random. Sometimes when I close something (like Paint Shop Pro) and go on to something else, the message will popup with Paint Shop Pro on the top, saying this. I just click it to close because I've already closed it.

If I get it a lot with the same program I go do "disk clean up" and that seems to help. or, maybe it's my imagination.

It will be interesting to see if anyone has any real, clear explainations about this.

I think it might be something built into WINDOWS to make people wonder

For april fools I got a virus.....My sister shared it unknowing through email. I went to House Calls and scanned my system and sure enough I had 16 infected files that were marked uncleanable. Instructions were to delete these files. There was then a fix to download to prevent and fix further damage. I did that. The virus I got is called PE_MAGISTR. Now when I boot my computer up it goes through everything like clockwork until my desktop is supposed to open, then I only get a mouse pointer and my wall paper for about 4 minutes or so. When all else such as taskbar, system tray, and icons come up I get a illegal operation message for spool 32. some of my programs drag in opening or moving from one function to another. I am guessing it has to do with this error but I don't know. My printer is gone and I will just reinstal that. I am sure there a few tale tale things here and there that I haven't found yet. I really don't want to have to wipe my drive and redo things that presents another list of problems I could get through it but really don't want to. When returning to House Calls I now check out clean. I did do a scan disk and defrag.......it took forever but it did finally get through it. Please advise to what I can do to correct this problem.
Thanks so much .......Suze

A:illegal operation message constantly

Explorer, in the error details, is Windows. Because you've likely had no firewall install hackers may have installed Trojan 'robots' on your online computer and corrupted your operating system. But that's just about 1 of a dozen ways operating systems get corrupted. Another is use over time, for example. A lot of 'ill ops' are a bad sign. But often the errors are correctable. Do you own a Windows 98 install CD? Some games can be re-install without having that CD?

please say what brand of computer you're using and if it's a HP, Compaq, or Emachines and the original hardware is installed with no add-ins, if you have the Restore/Recover CD's available. Gateways can be restore quite easily too.

***

Backup all your Sensitive Data (Internet Explorer Favorites; Netscape Bookmarks, Address Book and Netscape Mail Folders; Outlook Express Address Books and Folders (compress any Netscape Mail or Outlook Express folders first) letters, pictures, databases, spreadsheets, music, etc.) to removable media for restoring later.

When opening Internet Explorer in Win 98 system, I get the following message "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down" Details say Explorer caused an invalid page fault in module URLMON.DLL at 0187:la406b8d.

I have no idea why this is happening, for unlike my username of Mr. Spock, I am not too techy. I have tried to do start/run, etc., to find this file, but am told that there is no pathway to URLMON.DLL. Maybe that's the problem, no pathway. When I do a file search for it, it shows up about 4 times. I have run virus scans on the files and nothing is infected.

I downloaded some PCbug thing that cost $60, but it did nothing to fix this. Can anyone out there give me instructions on how to correct this problem in a way that a retarded dog could understand? I am not afraid to go into the registry, but would need detailed instruction. I would really appreciate some help here. Thanks.
