As suggested, I used the software Combo Fix, which after the scanning produced a report.  I hope the Gurus could please take a look at the report, and let me know what I should be fixing based on the report.  Thank u.

Pick one or the other having 2 AV/AM can cause problems.

Get rid of the registry cleaner.. another not needed and potential troublemaker
First you will have un install your sound drivers (all of them)
Then reboot the machine and let the afair take its course. If the drivers don't automatically reinstall. Install them manually.

Your first question on this issue ended with the sound working again; is this still the case, and now you're just wanting to head off any future trouble at the pass, so to speak?

I would view the following entries with suspicion:


If they aren't associated with any programs or hardware that you know about, rename them and reboot; any error messages that come up will tell you more about them, enabling you to deicde what to do with them.

It seems also that you ran Combofix with the AV enabled; this shouldn't be done, as AV software can interfere with its operation, to the detriment of both.

I would endorse ve3ofa's comments about AV, AM, and registry cleaners; to them I would add, get rid of any third party browser toolbars - they don't add anything essential to the functionality of your browser, frequently get in the way of what you want to do, can cause browser performance issues, and can act as conduits for whatever additional "features" that the toolbar provider thinks you should have. Also, avoid free games sites if possible; it's very common for users of such sites to end up with far more than they expected, and none of it welcome...
