Default I had a serious Nasty invade my PC last night

I couldn't tell you which one.. if it was Conflicker or something else..

It firstly rebooted me out of no where (first sign) on my Vista x64.
then after the reboot Avast went crazy before the Nasty made it non functional, then it shutdown Comodo (firewall) and my CPU was going like mad, 90% usage.

Now had it been earlier in the day I would have used Osiris's Guide, but since I was trying to get to sleep I wanted to kill it a bit faster or while I slept.

So I went to Panda active scan, (was not real impressed with the hoops they make you go through) and it found and cleaned one, they tried to charge me $15.00 to clean my cookies, LOL.

Then went to AVG and downloaded the trial version of pro, installed it and ran the scan while I slept, it also caught one Virus.

Now everything seems to be fine.

should I still go through the Guide? incase anything is left?
