hi, man i havent been here in a while lol..
anyways, today i installed Anti VIR on my computer because my trial for norton security 2007 runs out in like 2 days (im getting vista anyway so i needed something to hold me over safety wise). so i installed it and ran a scan, and it kept finding like trojan's and all that, and then all of a sudden norton was detecting things too.. now this computer is a dell dimension c512 (customized) and i just got it in early december, no problems what so ever. it's media center edition. now my problem is, if i try to play music like on winows media player or center or even on my MP3 players software, i get an error message.
"Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly."
thats for windows media player, the message i get from my mp3 players software is
"unable to open the necessary device(s) for playback. It may be in use or unavailable."
my sound card is the 7.1 creative sound blaster thing and ive never had a problem with it.
so i wanted to try a system restore, but if i select a checkpoint, after it goes thru the motions, it says it cant restore because no changes have been made!
thanks in advance
