Hey. This may not be related, but this issue started when my Webroot Spysweeper encounter a trojan, which was Quarantined after it found it. At this point the system sounds stopped working (startup, clicking on items, etc), but I could play music using Winamp. I did some searching on the net and performed a few of the recommended tasks to fix this issue.
The problem is is that no sounds will play at all now and I get the pc speaker beep when windows loads, I am asked if I want to close a box (like mozilla). Also, and this may be as a result of the PC installing/looking for other drivers (not sure), but each time I load up windows (from a restart) it locks up my internet browser and I need to close it (which takes ~15 min to close) since it goes to the not responding state. I will attach a picture of the items in the device manager and maybe you can guide me on what to do?? I'm really fed up with this and I cannot find the correct driver or what to do. I tried downloading a driver off of Dell's website, since I think they have the rights to the version I need, but I was thinking that the correct driver is probably still on the PC somewhere.

1. How do I stop all the Microsoft Kernel ..... items from being installed each start up?
2. More importantly, how do I get SigmaTel High Definition Audio to work again?

I hope I didn't forget anything. The PC works fine otherwise.
