I ran combofix on a Vista 64 bit home premium laptop. First time I got a message that pev.exe would stop, so I clicked ok. Combofix ran, and started counting the modules it was checking down through the 50's, then suddenly rebooted. The log only had a few lines talking about disabling/updating the antivirus and security software and that is the end of any log text. Once the reboot takes place, a combo fix window without any contents inside starts flashing sequentially down the screen in steps real fast. It is hard to stop it unless you can catch the x to close the window and stop the program. Not sure why or how to proceed. Any suggestions?
