For several weeks, my PC would occasionally restart spontaneously. The System Event log cited a problem with ~\Windows\System32\audiodg.exe.
During that time, I had occasional problems. Sometimes no sound from external speakers, sometimes no sound from headphones, sometimes no sound from either.
On 6/5/14, MBAM Pro detected Trojan.FakeMS in audiodg.exe and quarantined the file. Since then I have no sound at all.
Drivers on the integrated sound card are up-to-date. In Control Panel > Sound > Playback tab, the test for "Speakers" showed this error: "Failed to play test tone."
I installed a new sound card in a PCI slot, updated the drivers, and get the same error for testing "Speakers" and "Digital Audio Interface": "Failed to play test tone."
It may be coincidence, but it seems likely that audiodg.exe could be involved.
Is there a way to know for sure that MBAM's detection was legitimate?
What is your advice?
