I'm working on a Packard Bell Running Windows 98.
This machine had been locking up multiple times while running various programs. I ran a virus checker on it and found 25 infected files with an 'APStrojan' virus. Many of these files had to be deleted. Among those files were 'Uninstallms, msdos98.exe, mine73.exe, mine.exe and multiple miXX.zip files'.
After deleting these files I started having problems with the CD ROM player ( LITEOn Ltn301) the machine says the device is not ready when I place program type cd in it. When I place a music CD in the CDROM it will try and play the CD, but I have no sound. I'm not even sure what sound driver this thing has in it. I've tried reinstalling the cdrom driver, but it still doesn't seem to help. As far as the sound driver I've tried the XpressAUDIO™ 16 bit sound and that doesn't work.
Any suggestions on my CD drive and sound card will be greatly appreciated.

It may be because the files that you deleted belonged to those device drivers. I would reinstall Windows and let it automatically reinstall your device drivers.

If that doesn't work, it may be because it is a proprietary CD-ROM drive. A lot of those old Packard Bells had those.

I have a few of those drivers here; but, you would have to identify it for me before I would know if I have yours.
