Thanks for the reply. The laptop has been disconnected since the hack was discovered.
I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately.
Interesting thought and I can see exactly why this might be the right attitude to take. However, even if it ends up being reformatted, I would still like to try and solve the rebooting issue and the Windows Defender issue for future reference.
Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.
