What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? Have you tried doing your anti-virus scans in "SAFE MODE"?

You need to start there first. If you don't have any anti-virus or need to replace it, see BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources. In #4 there is a list of several other free online anti-virus scans which you can perform.

If your system is clean you should SET A NEW RESTORE POINT to prevent reinfection from an old restore point. Any malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which can reinfect your system. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to set a new RESTORE POINT:
1. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
2. Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
3. Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
4. Click "OK".
5. Click the "More Options" Tab.
6. Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Then your system is not clean so hold off on setting a new restore point and follow the instructions in the self-help guide "How to remove VirusBursters."

You may want to start a new topic and post your question about sound problems in the Hardware or Windows XP Home and Professional. This issue is probably related to device drivers or your sound card. There are others here with more expertise in those areas than I am.
