Virus Question?
« on: October 03, 2010, 07:38:40 PM »
I was wondering, can a virus disable Sound (audio service), webcam, microphone or such things?
i'm asking because i'm getting my audio service turned off every once in a while, and my microphone doesnt work sometimes either. Can this be due to a virus? If so can you help me? If not, can you still help me :P ?

Or maybe you should update your drivers........
