Hi, I installed Combofix, but after reading around to how danger it can be, I decided to uninstall it, but it's not uninstalling. Currently, it's frozen, but nothing's happening. I really don't want to force it to close or reboot. Did I do something wrong? What should I do?


EDIT: Okay, it just stopped freezing, but I still need help uninstalling safely.


EDIT2: Okay, nevermind, it uninstalled; never doing that again.
