I didn't find out about this forum until I'd already run ComboFix.
However, out of respect for the notes above I won't post my log information here.
The problem came from a torrent download when I ran it. Like an idiot
I was still shopping for anti-virus software because I'm sick of Norton, and so got dinged by some malware. This one creates the Micro AVS popups and says that there are all kinds of security risks and asks for me to download their software to fix it (I didn't, I removed my network connection and force powered down until I had the ComboFix with the Microsoft Recovery Download available).
I downloaded ComboFix and the Microsoft Pro SP2 file, put both on the infected computer and then (following the tutorial my friend had printed) dragged the Microsoft File over the ComboFix icon. From there I let ComboFix do its thing until the system reboot, then logged in and let it finish.
I still don't have that computer hooked to the network (haven't tried either). I wanted to see if someone would help me out and wanted to follow your instruction going forward.
