I have a windows xp pro SP3 system with a Realtek sound card. It was loaded with malware, and I used combofix to get rid of most of it. The sound disappeared and Im told the computer has no audio controller installed, and to install one.
In device manager, it says my Realtek HD audio card is working.
Ive tried uninstalling the driver and rebooting, letting it reinstall, Ive tried installing it manually as well, but every time, I get this error:
Error Code: -5009 : 0x800706ba
pAPP:Realtek High Definition Audio Driver
PVENDOR:Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
@Windows XP Service Pack 3 (2600) BT_OTHER 0.0
When I try to adjust the volume, Im told I had a violation and it will now close.
I even downloaded a hotfix from Microsoft, but windows update wont run.
Any ideas? A similar topic on another site had similar issues, but the solution didnt work for me.
Thanks in advance.
