I recently got hit with the Win7 Internet Security 2012 virus and used the removal instructions I found on this site (thanks). But now, it seems like it's affected my drivers. A lot of my devices say, "The driver for this device might be corrupted, or your system may be running low on memory or other resources. (Code 3)" in the properties description. And most notably (and annoyingly), the sound doesn't work and the apparently "no audio output device is installed."

I've looked all over for solutions to the audio problem and nothing has worked. Anybody have any suggestions??

Thanks.

When you get these messages...did you uninstall the driver and then reinstall same?

I tried to do that initially, but the software isn't even recognized in my device manager anymore.

If you have uninstalled the damaged drivers and then reinstalled drivers...there's nothing I can suggest, if it is a driver problem.

If it's not a driver problem and your malware-removal efforts were ineffective...I suggest that we move this topic to Am I Infected.
