Hopefully you have an anti virus/spyware programme installed, if so keep pressing F8 on boot up to get you into safe mode, this will not allow the trojan to run.

When you get the list on screen choose safe mode, then when windows starts, choose the administrator account, go straight to my computer>properties>system restore tab, and turn off system restore.

Run your anti virus programme and then when the trojan is found and then reboot pc, then turn system restore back on.

I got a virus (I believe it was a trojan horse), I removed it my self, but now my computer is slow, and I can only use Opera as an internet browser (I'm using it right now). I was wondering how to reboot...

Without a proper antivirus, your computer remains vulnerable to various malware, spyware, spam, rootkits, Trojan horses, and other viruses. Keyloggers and rootkits attack your PC and start destroying and corrupting the Windows registries. A corrupt Windows registry disturbs and slows down the processing of your computer. Hence, you suffer slow speed and hanging problems while working on the computer.

As per the issue I would suggest you to restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.
