Please please help. I've had this laptop for 10 days, and I have already screwed it up.

Please bear with me. I don't know a whole lot about computers.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720. Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit.
My computer came with PC Cillin, but it kept freezing up when I tried to shut it down & it said there was a compatibility problem so I uninstalled it & downloaded Avast Antivirus. I ran Avast an hour ago & it said there were files that were infected so I deleted them. :thumbsup: Mistake.
Now I cannot click on my sound icon on my taskbar. When I mouse over it, it says "No Audio Output Device is installed."
If I look at my Installed Programs, it says I have Sound Blaster Audigy Advanced MB.

What do I do next to try to fix this? If you need anything other info, please let me know & let me know how to get that info on my computer.
