    Hello, last night I turned off my computer to clean my GPU. After I turned it back on I had no sound coming through my headset. I've tried a few other headphones and they didn't work either. In my volume tray it shows sound playing but I hear nothing, I've already tried multiple solutions like re-installing my audio drivers and running Malware-bytes and Microsoft security essentials and a couple others I read online. The only thing I can think of what caused it was last night I ran a virus called NETSHOW.exe and installed by accident but I think I've removed it and I have no idea why I have no sound. Help would be very much appreciated.

    (I don't think this has anything to do with it but I plugged my monitor into my other GPU slot that I don't use and that's when it stopped working, then I plugged it back in to the other one and still no audio.)
