having been infected with what turned out to be the TDL4@MBR rootkit, I naively followed the steps outlined in the thread http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=57224. I got so far that I downloaded and renamed ComboFix.exe to Combo-Fix.exe on my Desktop (as described in the thread) and ran it (and allowed it to update itself to a newer version when it asked to), before I realized that this wasn't something you should do without professional help.
So I stopped there and started to go through the preparation guide http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html, saw that gmer reported I had TDL@MBR so I downloaded aswMBR.exe from http://digitalchunk.com/tdl4-rootkit-removal.htm, ran it and then the "address blocked" warnings from my ESET NOD32 Antivirus stopped appearing.
Then I tried to uninstall ComboFix as decribed in the original thread (http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=57224), but there's still a folder named Combo-Fix on my C:-drive which wasn't removed. So I downloaded ComboFix.exe again and ran ComboFix /Uninstall (didn't help), I downloaded it again and renamed it to Combo-Fix.exe when I saved it to my Desktop (as described in the original thread) and ran Combo-Fix /Uninstall from my Dekstop folder, but the C:\Combo-Fix folder is still there.
Can I just delete the folder or how should I properly get rid of it?
Very greatful for help,

Moved from MRL to AV, Firewall, etc.
