So I will start with the standard apology, for lack of information.

I am running XP, with COMODO

I have had this trojan on my computer for a wile it is a Win32 trojan, I don't have the exact details I know the name is a lot longer than that. The thing is I have been searching and searching to find a way to eradicate this issue. Everything keeps pointing me to your direction and "combofix" I finally resolved to run it despite the risk. Because I had could a lot of good instructions. I went ahead and ran the program the way I read to do so:

1: I renamed the file so that the trojan could not copy it
2: I stopped my virus software, and everything else I could

3:I ran the program and it when trough up to around 50 steps
4: then it started deleting things
5: then combofix prompted me that it was rebooting.......and here is where my day got really stressful

The computer did not reboot, to any reasonable degree that I recognize. The window logo did its thing, then black, with my mouse courser and nothing else......should I reset manually (even though combofix said not to)
