I use Vista OS and recently got attacked by Vista recovery virus. I used Hitman pro 3.5 and Norton to clean it. Now it seems the virus/malware is removed. However I have the following issues still.
1) My search in google, yahoo etc gets redirected to other random sites. It is both in IE and Firebox.
2) I do not get audio in youtube, etc in IE
3) My start menu got erased and nothing shows up. Even all programs -> any link do not have anything in it.
4) Skype stopped working. Tried re-install but did not work.

Anybody got the same issue and got it resolved? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
