Alright I am experiencing some weird changes with my PC today. First off out of the blue my boot sector gets damaged and I had to go and create another one so i could boot my OS. After I did all of this for some reason my sound stopped working. Device Manager says all my codecs/drivers are working properly but when I click my speaker icon in the system tray It says I have no audio device installed. Now thats just the minor problem. They major one is I cant get into My Computer. I click the icon and the whole system freezes up. Therefore I can not access my C drive at all. I have a copy of Spyware Doctor that I have ran but it gets to 95% then my PC restarts. I absolutely have no idea what's going on. I need all the suggestions and help I can get because I have alot of important info on my PC and I do not want it to get formatted.

For the sound error I get the following:

Bad DirectSound driver: Please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration.
Error Code: 88780078

The funny thing is the PC says all the drivers are working fine...

Also...

I ran HijackThis and here is my log file...

:tazz: Probably that "Wild Tangent" program is causing some problems !?
I did NOT see any anti-virus program running on your computer !?
Do you have one and I missed it ?

No not really. Just anti-spyware.

:tazz: Every computer should have an anti-virus program on it .
I use the good & FREE Avast from www.avast.com .
At this time, are you able to complete a download of a
program over the internet ?
Even though your Spyware Doctor will go only 95 %, it
appears you have SpySweeper on your machine !?
What results have you had running it ?
AOL Instant Messenger has more frequent security
"breaches" than the other 2 major IM's; I use the
"safer" Yahoo IM .
And your Java Runtime program is 2 updates behind;
if you are able I recommend you uninstall your current
version, then go to www.java.com and get their latest .
