Windows 10: start-up pop up and regedit has been disabled.

       19 Sep 2015 #1 start-up pop up and regedit has been disabled.

    About a week ago this started.Every time I boot my PC Firefox(default browser) starts with this url page.The site is obviously malicious and is filled with all types of pornographic and just generally sketchy material.I have gotten start up web pop ups like this before and was able to fix them by deleting their respective values and keys in the registry.The only problem is, my regedit won't start (I believe this to be the works of the virus).I've tried searching everywhere and have done numerous scans on Avast in hopes of finding and deleting some of the components of this bug, but with no avail.

    Please any help would be greatly appreciated.I know my PC and system very well and am open to any and all advanced solutions.

    Have you checked your browser Home page setting and your Host file?

    If you get the message "Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator", then this guide will be useful to you: Enable Registry Editor disabled by Administrator or Virus

    Did you try Malwarebytes?

    I've seldom found anything that it doesn't detect.

    Rebooting into safe mode may help, by stopping the malware from loading.
