I was ask by someone on the malwarebytes site to run combofix - was given this address to download it from - printed out all the instructions followed them exactly. the process is in the Completed stage_xx process - it got to stage_50 fairly quickly but has been siting with that as the last display for almost an hour. The instruction say it will finish - and display a screen that it is preparing a log. The instructions also said this would take 10 minutes - so Im afraid there is something wrong - but do not know what to do. PLEASE ADVISE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE - Thanks

Who, from malwarebytes, told you to run Combofix?
Have you posted back there with your problem?
