I have a Windows 7 (32-bit) machine that was infected with spyware. I ran Malwarebyte and cleaned the infection; re-ran after cleanup and NO infections found. Ran TDSSKiller and NO rootkit detected.
However, after removing the spyware I have a few hardware devices that don't work anymore. The following devices are showing a yellow exclamation point in Device Manager:
PLDS DVD+-RW DH-16ABS ATA Device
Generic PnP Monitor
High Definition Audio Controller
Intel® ICH7 Family LPC Interface Controller - 27B8
Each one of these gives the following error when you go to the properties: The driver for this device might be corrupted, or your system may be running low on memory or other resources. (Code 3)
I have already tried to uninstall each driver and have Windows 7 autodetect, but they keep coming back with the yellow exclamations. I have also tried to "update" the driver, but Windows says I'm already using the appropriate driver. I even tried installing the latest Intel chipset driver, but that didn't work either.
Is there something else I'm missing to get these drivers working again?
