I guess I am looking for a quick answer, as to why I suddenly lost all my audio devices, printer, and sound - It was following a series of events as I attempted to clear out spyware. The most recent thing was I took some inappropriate advice, and disabled system restore. (Win XP - SP2)
I did not know that would wipe out all previous restore points...anyway, I proceeded to use ewido anti-spy tool, in safe mode, and quarantined all results. Reboot, and everything works great, very fast - but no audio or printer after that! I have changed my start up to load all devices - still no change. I tried to get information with the system tool - It says Cannot Collect Information - some Windows management files moved or changed...So I am sure that there is something that can be fixed here to find my installed devices, such as printer and DVD burner, etc. BTW I did turn on system restore, and it had wiped out all previous points, so I am stuck with the current configuration I suppose.
- Any advice for me?
