OK I'm a little confused here.

My sound on my computer worked fine yesterday.

Today, I have no sound whatsoever. I was able to get Winamp to work by switching it from the default audio (which it said had errors) to Realtek HD audio. However when I go to Control Panel > Sound and Audio Devices, everything is grayed out and says no device selected, yet all my drivers say they are working properly.

How do I fix this? I haven't changed anything since yesterday aside from running Malwarebytes last night, which found one thing and removed it.

Gremlins, obviously!

Glad they decided to leave when you rebooted!
In the beginning there was the command line.

OK so here's an update...I think this may be related to another issue I have (posted about in the malware forum)...

At some point awhile after starting the computer, it pops up and says Generic Host Processes (Win32) has crashed...and after that my sound doesn't work.

Ugh, I've got something on this computer that none of my spyware programs is finding.
