Using WindowsXP:

Hey, I'm new to the forum. I've got infected by a serious virus that has completely wiped out my internet, sound, and many windows services (search and system restore disabled, can't even click and drag files). In network connections, window is completely empty. Under Audio Devices my sound card is not recognized. (No audio device). Computer however has little slowdown, and under the processes tab nothing looks amiss.

I'm using a seperate computer to access the internet that I will soon have no access to. I've downloaded Combofix, Malwarebytes, and a Kaspersky virus scanner to take with me to try and scan. Hopefully, all my drivers and services haven't been completely compromised.

I'm usually very good at catching viruses early, but it seems like this one was planted and set to release on christmas day. -- undoubtedly the worst infection I've ever had.

Thank you for taking the time to address my problem

Also recently bought Windows 7. Already made a clean partition to clean install it to. Will hopefully be able to get online and make any needed changes to XP through the new installation.
