    Yesterday I ran a malwarebytes full system scan on my computer. It found two malicious items, one file and one on a registry key. I removed both of the malicious items and rebooted my computer. After I rebooted my computer everything went haywire. My sound won't play, Windows Aero themes won't work, My internet connections will not work at all, and I have no idea what to do.

    Here is the log MWB gave me and I'm guessing the problem was the Trojan was attached to an important program and when MWB deleted the registry key it screwed everything up.

    Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.44
    Database version: 3510
    Windows 6.1.7600

    EDIT: I am using a different computer to post everything, I have an external HDD so I can transfer anything over I need. Also I don't have any recovery disks for Windows 7 since the computer came with Vista originally and I went and got Win 7 in a not so legal matter. I don't care if I need to reinstall Vista to get it working again, I just want to figure out what is wrong with it. I went into the recovery files, but it gives me an error even for the disks that it can't access the recovery partition. I downloaded iso files for Win 7 recovery disks, but it won't run Daemon Tools, since I need an internet connection to install even the trial version.

    seeing as how you got the OS in a not so legal manner, we really can't assist. Reinstalling with a legit copy will solve the issues, I'd imagine.
