My CD rom driver is bad and windows will not install a new one

My wife accidently downloaded Antivirus 360. I tried to get as much of it off the computer as possible. I am trying to download my Defender Pro, and now I cannot use my CDROM, nor my SONY USB DVD/CD DRX-820U. Both drivers show they may be corrupt. When I try and update them windows states that it cannot. I cannot find the original discs for either, am I completely stuck, or is there a way to fix without purchasing an eternal CDROM and installing my software that way?

You can go to the vendors website and download the drivers, however the drivers are apart of windows. try doing a system restore and go back before she put that nasty program in.

Windows - Internet Defender is constantly warning me of the presence of viruses on my computer, but i already have another Anti-virus doing the job, and am tired of Internet defender giving me pop-ups...


Hi ryan_a_parke
Internet Defender is a virus as you can read here : http://www.spywareremove.com/removeInternetDefender.html
If you can't succeed to remove it with the instructions , try this :
Delete your antivirus , it is useless since it didn't identify Internet Defender) .
Go to http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ and download Microsoft's stuff . It's free but it will work , believe me .
Complete your pcs protection by downloading and installing free MalwareBytes : http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10896905.html
Best regards ,
