my friends computer had the fake Microsoft Security Essential alerts and apparently they had run the "clean computer" option which of course was a bad thing so I don't know how much junk came from that.

It is an older dell running XP with 512 ram and service pack 2. After running malwarebytes from a cd I am now able to access the internet from the computer which I was unable to do before. I have also installed microsoft security essentials on it as it did not have an active virus scan running.

previously whichever the last program was I tried to run that is what the "alert" was telling me was the bad program but at least now the malwarebytes seemed to have fixed that issue

now upon rebooting it gives me the following can't be found c\windows\kbacp70.dll. there are also a couple things in the add/remove programs that it says it can't find to remove.

Any help appreciated.
