Okay my computer (windows xp, bought in 2002) had a trojan, and my antivirus program could see it but couldnt delete it. So, I backed up the data, and popped in a windows xp cd i burned from an image I downloaded. After reformatting, everything was fine except the speakers wouldnt play. I figured that this was because i needed to install the driver for the sound card. I popped in the cd for the driver that came with the computer (creative soundblaster live). After i finish installing, it prompts me to restart. At this point, the speakers play music perfectly, everything is back to normal. When I do restart the computer, the speakers are very static-y and fuzzy. If i uninstall the driver, then reinstall it, the same situation happens. Using headphones instead of the speakers does not change this. What can i do?

thanks for the help!
