can a virus disable sound files ?

i am cleaning a friends vista 32 laptop out, it had some nasty spyware and viruses, but i was able to run combofix to get it back to normal, and removed mcaffe and AVG he had on it, and installed MSE.

i fixed all that but there is still the issue of no music will play, the audio drivers looked okay, but i un-installed them and reinstalled drivers, still nothing.

the icon in system tray shows a X in the sound deal, and it shows 0 for volume level, but i am sure the audio is set to work in control panel.

when i go to play something in WMP it tells me "no audio device availiable"

foobar2000 gives me an error as well, something about access is denied.

they had the same sound issue before i cleaned it out of crap, even system sounds do not work.

what am i missing here ?

i could format and re-install, but i would have to backup a bunch of stuff first

any advice ? ?

the red x over the speaker? That means it's muted.

click the speaker once, then uncheck the mute button i think

ya red x

if i go to to open volume mixer, it says no audio device installed, but it shows 2 things for playback devices, one is speakers/headphones and the other is SPDIF, and te drivers for those are installed.

i checked the laptop buttons as well and they seem to change when pressed
