    My computer had a virus. I did the system recovery on it. When I tried to play music it said that it could not play because I have no sound device. What do I need to do?

Possible corrupt operating system. The cause of corrupt operating system is Windows file corrupted or virus infected Windows.

Solution corrupt Windows files:
1. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Restore (restore to the date when the OS is still normal)
2. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Image Recovery (restore using a backup system that you created)

Solution files corrupted due to virus infected windows
Update anti-virus and virus scan (if the virus is detected, the primary action = repair, secondary action = quarantine). Then repair the operating system with System Restore or System Recovery Options.
If the operating system infected with virus (virus infected not long ago), the best solution is to use System Restore. Restore to a date when the windows are still normal.

Even if you remove a virus, most of the cases, the damage cannot be repaired. Remove the sound driver and install it once again. If that doesn't work, you should consider reinstalling the OS.

You got infected with a fake security scammer. It self has put on your pc a lot more viruses so that your system is now completely corrupted.
The only way to fix this level; of infection is to reinstall from scratch. Once the reinstall is completed, and before you put your files back, install a good antivirus like Avast, which is free for home use, all you have to do to keep it is to register it.

I am thinking that you may have a virus or malware that has infected your system to be getting this type of problem. Go to the following sites and download and runs these apps. in an attempt to find and clean the system.

Ruun this next program and perform a quick scan, show the results when scan is complete and delete everything it finds.

This next app is a free anti-virus that just needs you to register it once a year...that's it. install this program and when it asks to perfrom a bootup scan, answer yes, that way this program will scan your hard drive before windows actually loads, that way all files will be scanned.

hi azorin,

nice gaming PC you got yourself there.

It may sound weird but I would recommend to install Win XP Pro
instead of Vista, when you have the right to do so(Original CD!)
This might rid you of some errors and slow downs.

Concerning Vista and probale virus infection:

I dunno what you have caught, but some viruses tend to infect even the Master boot record and backcopy into clean systems, so when setting up a new system, just use clean CDs, before installing any other devices than the most necessary, do get an anti-virus (like A-squared, Avira or such) software on CD and scan without accessing the web.
Then see if you still have these problems coming.

For further assistance do not hesitate to come back to fixya.

Good luck!

It runs multiple screens with the message internet script error

Hi hbatessr. You have a virus/spyware problem. Whatever has infected your system is trying to access different websites. You need to install and run a spy-ware and anti-virus program to resolve this. If you want some free programs, go to and search for and download AVG anti-virus free version and Ad-Aware free version. Once you update and run both of these products, you will find lots of stuff that has infected your computer and needs to be deleted.
Hopes this helps!

Folder options is missing

Sounds like part of your XP operating system was damaged when you removed the virus. Most virus removal programs either quarantine (block off) or delete infected files. If something important gets infected, then things will stop working.

There is a fix, though. You will need your XP installation CD. Put it into your CD (or DVD) drive, and reboot. Allow the system to boot from the XP install disc. Once it loads the installer, it will ask if you wish to do a "new" installation, or repair the existing one. Obviously, you want to repair yours, so choose that, then just follow the prompts as it guides you through the process.

Once this is done, it should have replaced the essential files that were either quarantined or deleted, and things ought work as they did before.


PS - make sure you have thoroughly scanned your system for any further infections, preferably before repairing your XP setup.
