I am currently battling a google redirect virus/rootkit and attempting to remove it from my home computer via the proper help forum. Prior to finding Geeks To Go, I tried to get rid of it myslef, and was unsuccessful.

I wrongly deleted the wdmaud.sys file from the system32/drivers file. Now I have no sound and none of the diagnostic tests that I run help. I even downloaded the new Microsoft Fix It program, but to no avail.

How do I fix my sound? Life without sound on my comp bites.

Thank you .

Once you fix that issue, then we will come back to the sound problem.

Please post your machine specs here. If you have a machine you bought (Dell, HP, Gateway, etc) please post the serial number as well. With that info, we can look up the drivers from the respective support page.
