Yes it was a very dumb thing to do, I realised about a second after I did it. In my defence I was actually waiting for a UPS shipment, which was the subject of the phishing mail.

Hello. Lately, my laptop has been acting very weird. Its been shutting off and restarting on its own, it froze yesterday and showed a blue screen saying it crashed and had to restart, and then today, my firefox has been opening by itself and keeps opening windows that exceed 30 and each windows keeps opening tabs on its own.

i recently found out i had the virus called RECYCLER, and that it had infected my usb and hard drive. So the first thing i did was end the process called ctfmon.exe, as i read it was part of the virus. I also ran a program called combofix with a script that was supposed to kill the virus completely from my usb and my harddrive.
