Googled it, found nothing about this. Why do you think there is a virus ?
Try deleting and remaking partitions before format. Only format is not enough.
Registry ?? Thats not Linux.

You can use http://postimage.org/ for uploading screenshots and posts the links so everybody here can see it.
But why do you think its a virus ? Did virusscanner give warnings ?

You can download/use kaspersky rescue. It boots from a cd/usb and scans your pc.

RE: "OWNER"
Just had an idea. You're running Linux Mint. In Linux Mint you dont have admin-rights.
If you want todo something like changing important system-files you need to elavate your rights temporary
or else it will indeed not work. This is a very good security by design that windows lacks.
Normal things like using email or browsing websites dont need higher rights.
But for example updating or installing new programs you need to elavate rights.

In Terminal you type sudo before your command, it will ask your password and your command
will be executed. (password is same password as your password)
For use in the GUI you use gksudo.

That way the message about restricted owner makes sense too, its not a virus.
Just protection , you want todo something with a file of which you're not the owner.

If this is the case you're probally better off with help from the Linux Mint community.
In Linux Mint there is a IRC chat program, start that and you can ask questions on how to do
something. I think its called Linuxmint-help channel.

If not : ill wait for the screendumps.
