My problems are:
1) Can't connect to internet.
2) No sound.
On the internet issue:
- The problem started with a windows redirect. No matter what site I entered the system put in some bogus prefix. That bogus prefix essentially prevented me from getting to any site. I was able to get rid of the bogus prefix (please see the initial posting on the Malaware logs forum under user "Hansformat" for details) but I still can't connect to the internet.
- Rorschach112 led me through a series of actions (once again please see the thread) that seem to have gotten rid of any viruses I have on my system. However, I still can't get to the internet.
- There is absolutely nothing wrong with the internet connection; in fact I am using the same connection (via wireless router) to communicate with this forum using my 2nd household computer.
As to the sound, when I go to Control Panel/SoundsSpeech/AudioDevices the window says "No Audio Device".
Please help. Thanks!
