I installed it, despite a warning that it was an earlier version than I already had.
After install, it said 'Graphic Driver mismatch."
Sound is still garbled.

OK next step lets check out the system files
Open an elevate command prompt :
Go Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right click command prompt and select run as administrator
In the black box that opens type this command followed by pressing enter :
Allow the computer to do its thing, on completion reboot and let me know how the computer is behaving

Behaving the same...scan said it found corrupted files but could not fix all of them.
Everything seems to be running ok, except for sound. There is still annoying clicking and slightly garbled sound.

Installed Realtek drivers and restarted computer.
Unfortunately there is no improvement.

It's called 'Disable all sound effects' in my tab.
However, it still did nothing to help.
I also tried Microsoft Fix-it.

Two sets of external speakers, the Realtek driver and stock computer speakers and a Focusrite driver and external interface with JBL speakers. The sound problem is on all (including headphones.

I was thinking about a frayed cable on the speakers but if it appears on the headphones as well then I guess that would rule that out. As it stands I can see no apparent malware on the system and we are moving away from my comfort zone which is malware removal. It would probably be best now to post in the windows 7 forum where there is greater expertise than I can offer http://www.geekstogo...-and-windows-7/
Subject to no further problems
I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems
Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean
A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:
Download and run Delfix
Select the options as shown
: Keep Java Updated :
WARNING: Java is the #1 exploited program at this time. The Department of Homeland Security recommends that computer users disable Java
See this article
I would recommend that you completely uninstall Java unless you need it to run an important software.
In that instance I would recommend that you disable Java in your browsers until you need it for that software and then enable it. (See How to diasble Java in your web browser and How to unplug Java from the browser)
If you do need to keep Java then download JavaRa
Run the programme and select Remove Java Runtime. Uninstall all versions of Java present
Once done then run it again and select Update Java runtime > Download and install Latest version
Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:
Update and run weekly to keep your system clean
Click on the link above to be taken to Unchecky.com
click the very large Download button.
Click Open folder
Right click on the Unchecky_setup and choose to Run as Administrator
Once open click the Install button.
Then click on Finish
Unchecky is now installed and will help you keep unwanted check boxes unchecked, this is a fire and forget programme
It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.
