Which also means... I've seen the countless "combo fix it meant to be run with adult supervision" (can break your pc, steal your soul, etc... we also don't want to give details on how it works for good reason) disclaimers... got it ;)
The trouble is, I found that I have the WindowsClick malware on the system of issue. I was following the directions I first came upon that seemed reasonably legitimate here.
I am currently at Step 19 roughly. Last night when I went to bed, all seemed to be progressing nicely... until the reboot and ComboFix ran again. It got to Stage 7 and then hasn't progressed beyond that for over five hours (then I left for work this morning).
Is this reasonable/expected?
PS: Since finding this forum (and while searching) I found the combofix howto, but didnt notice any instructions about what to do in this even (or, perhaps I did, and it's just too late at this point to involve an "experienced" person before starting it).
