    hi. I am not sure what happened to my computer. I was surfing the net, then tried to watch a movie and all of a sudden there was no sound. I tried to listed to a song in iTunes and had an error that there is a problem with my computer's audio/video settings configuration and the playback may not work properly.

    when I go to settings/admin tools/services and try to start windows audio - I get the error "Could not start the windows audio service on local computer. Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly". Plug and play is started and seems to work. I get the same error for a few other services, eg, restore backup.
    I tried to do a restore backup, but I get that restore backup is not able to protect my computer and I must restart.

    also, the start/task bar changed from the XP to the windows classic mode with a larger font.

    I have AVG as my anti virus and it was clean (only a few cookies that it removed). Malwarebytes; anti malware does not open for some reason.

    chkdsk.exe (in read only mode) came back clean. the only thing it said "Warning! F parameter not specified" at the very top.

    also, I used an aircard to connect to the internet and now the program would not connect to the internet. I am using another computer to post this as I am not able to access the internet from the infected computer I cannot copy and paste things.

    also, my computer is much slower all of sudden, responds slower.

    any suggestions as to what the problem may be and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you in advance.
