Just as the title says: The wave slider goes down by itself causing me to lose all volume. I have an HP computer with integrated sound card using the Sound max driver. Its running on WIN XP pro SP3, I have already tried uninstalling an re-installing the drivers for the hardware with no luck.


I have Symantec Endpoint protection Malware bytes, have run both with nothing turning up. I have run combo fix in conjunction with rougue killer and rkill per an older post I had found on this site.


After doing so the sound returned and remained on until I reconnected my internet ( I always unplug the ethernet cable after running programs that remove malware in oder to do a baseline of performance before and after connecting once the clening tools are run).


All other programs and performance seem to remain uneffected.


As soon as I connected to the internet the problem returned leading me to believe I have something that has a strong hold.


I looked at the process moniter and kept checing when it occured in relation to processes running and what I saw was just a generic svchost process that runs when this happens. I can then reset the Wave slide and observe the same result over and over.


I repeated the malware steps above to confirm my results and am now at a point where I would just rather cut my loses and reinstall windows and everything else..


Any suggestions on what I could do otherwise would be appreciated otherwise its format C:\ and install

I apologize for posting here as after having a better look at the forum sub titles, I should have posted in the "security" "am I infected" Area. Please delete as I will repost the same in that forum.


Thanks and regards.
