Well ever since a recent virus/spyware attack to my computer I have noticed that it may have affected something called Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator. My computer now doesn't read any thing I plug in for sound: mics, headsets, speakers. Nothing. Please help if possible I have no idea what to do.

EDIT: Moved from Internal Hardware to more appropriate XP forum ~ Hamluis.

Mics, headsets and speakers are not really plug and play devices. The system will not automatically detect them

Make sure you are plugging the mic into the rose colored jack and the speakers into the lime green one.
Also check the mixer in the volume control to make sure that everything isnt muted.

Please post system specs as we may need to reinstall your sound card drivers.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Near as I can tell...this PnP Software Device Enumerator is run by a Windows driver...which means that replacing it probably entails running sfc /scannow or a repair install...or reinstalling chipset drivers.

I would try the chipset drivers first just because I don't know any better :thumbsup:.

I second that. Good advice. One time my sound went out and I wasted around 10 minutes hunting for the problem just to discover the sound had been muted, in my case from the keyboard by another user.

Have you tried downloading the sound card drivers from here: http://www.realtek.com/downloads and select the High Definition Drivers.
