I ran the GMER program and it very quickly found the TDL4@MBR maware. It asked if I wanted to do a full scan. I thought the better answer was yes, but now I'm no sure. Maybe if I'd said no, it would have proceeded to more quickly fix what it had already found, instead of now having to do a full scan first. I'd expect the full scan to take at least 12 hours, maybe as much as 36 or even more, based on other comprehensive scans done with other software.

So, should I stop GMER's full scan, restart it, and answer No instead of Yes?

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
Include the GMER log you already have.

Let me know if that went well.

My computer crashed owing to lack of resources, which I think might have been file handles, or memory, resulting from the infection. I have a TLD4 MBR infection, but I might have other infections as well.

maybe better

Download the FixTDSS.exe

Save the file to your Windows desktop.
Close all running programs.
If you are running Windows XP, turn off System Restore. How to turn off or turn on Windows XP System Restore
Double-click the FixTDSS.exe file to start the removal tool.
Click Start to begin the process, and then allow the tool to run.
Restart the computer when prompted by the tool.
After the computer has started, the tool will inform you of the state of infection (make sure to let me know what it said)
If you are running Windows XP, re-enable System Restore.
