computer hit by bug RRS feed

  • Question

  • A virus or bug of some sort has disabled or deleted all my media software, I have no sound, no video player will work, even my display settings have gone away and am running on a default minimum.  The wallpaper has turned to a banner saying "Warning fatal error All media systems or your computer have crashed or corrupted."  and has a link to a suspicious looking page where it wants me to update my codec by paying $80.

    I ran one care a few times now and it seems to catch something new everytime.  I need to know is there anyway I can clean the system without having to do a full reinstall.
