Hopefully you can help me.

I am running a Dell Dimension with Windows XP Media Center Edition with SP3.

The sound stopped working on the system and the system hangs trying to reinstall the drivers.
In addition, when you click on Start, all of the Start Menu icons are gone. Also, when you click on Control Panel and you try to swtich to Classic View, it does not work.

I ran MBAM on it in Safe mode and it found and cleared Adware.MyWebSearch, Trojan.Vundo, Trojan.BHO, Fake.Dropped.Malware and Malware.Trace. I ran it again and the system is clean. I rebooted the system and ran MBAM as both users and comes up clean, but the above problems still exist.

I tried SuperAntiSpyware and that came up with Rogue.Agent/Gen.Nullo which I also cleaned.

What else could be causing these?
