Hi, Please help!!
On the weekend my computer (Windows XP Professional) was infected with the 'delightful'WIndows XP REcovery Virus, at this point all my files on the computer were hidden. Thanks to following the removal of this virus via Bleepingcomputer; whereby I downloaded Malaware bytes ant-spyware and unhide.exe. By doing this, I seemed to have removed the virus and retrieved all icons for my previously hidden documents and files. However, although it shows that my file are there, they are all showing as 'Empty@ when I hover over the chosen programme. I am however able to access my photographs, but for example I am unable to access Skype. I have tried to download this again but I keep getting an error 2378 appear. I am also being redirected to spam websites on the internet, today I carried out updates on my computer and one of which was to update my internet explorer I did so and restarted the computer but on start up I had a message "ordinal 654 could not be located". At the moment I am using Google Chrome. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
