Hi,

New to the board -- I've seen problems similar to mine, but the fixes I've tried have not worked. Basically, my audio failed. When I looked in device manager, I found it completely empty. I also had no network connection and my task bar and Start menu weren't showing up. I viewed my services, and this was either completely empty, or very much reduced.

I ran McAfee Virus scan. It found about 13 different things, and "fixed" them all, but no joy.

I un-installed Windows security update 905749 (after reading this KB905749). Either that or doing something else (I restored some of the services with my OS CD) restored my toolbar and Start menu. After reading some topics on this board, I tried using the AproposFix.exe.

But I am still having major problems. The Windows theme looks like Win 2K classic, the device manager is still empty. And I cannot perform any copy/paste functions in explorer -- The only way I was able to load AproposFix and HiJackThis onto the PC was by putting them in RAR files and then extracting them to the right destinations.

Crazy.

So, I've come here begging for help -- here is my Apropos log:

=========================================

As you can see, it doesn't seem to have found anything



And here is the HiJackThis log (I ran this after running AproposFix):
