Hi thanks for the help

I am running an HP Pavillion dv4 1225dx with 64bit. It started freezing a little bit after startup. Everything still shows the windows I have up just starts saying its not responding and then finally the mouse still moves but just starts spinning and ctrl/alt/delte doesn't work either and I have to shut it down by pressing the power button. Then the audio stopped working and even somehow disinstalled itself. I have run malwarebytes, AVG, superantispyware and have come up with Mal/JavaJar-A, Mal/Fake AV-EA, Adware.Hotbar, and Trojan.Dropper. I deleted them but somethings are still off. I tried to download another IDT audio driver from HP website but while installing it, it says that access is denied. Therefore, I think there is still trojans or viruses on my computer. I have run HiJackThis and have a log.

If you can get into device manager, you can right click on your computer name at the top of the list and click on scan for hardware changes. This should find your hardware and install the drivers automatically. You can always resort to a reinstall of your os.
