Have you tried running a system restore to a date before you used the registry cleaner? Restoring to a previous registry may straighten things out.
Registry cleaners are notorious for wreaking havoc. I highly recommend never using them.

What computer brand, and model is it?
not sure how to reinstall driver
and also a little Red "X" is popping up regarding Norton and I have not had Norton on my system in years
Click on Download HijackThis Installer
Install, and run it.
Click on Open the Misc Tools section button.
Click on Generate StartupList log button.
The list will open in Notepad.
Save it as startup.txt.
Zip the file, and attach it to your next reply.

Compaq Presario 6000 - only problem now no sound on incoming emails even though I have it checked to have sound and my Avast is no longer having a sound for suspicious emails or stating that the virus bank has been updated. Thank you again

As for the sound is only mail, and Avast sound affected? Do you have other regular Windows sounds? Do you have a sound on the internet? Can you play music CDs?

Let's start with your CD drive missing...
Try one of these:
2. Download, and run Restore Missing CD Drive patch
Double click on cdgone.zip to unzip it.
Right click on cdgone.reg, click Merge.
Accept registry merge.
3. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.

Just curious...which step did bring it back?
Now, I need to know more about the sound issue. Do you have ANY sound, like Windows sound, music CD sound?

Go Start>Control Panel, double click on "Sound", click on "Sounds" tab.
What is listed in indicated field? Does the "Test" button work?
(don't pay attention to my setting; I have a customized sound)
Test also Avast sounds:
