Customer Question

I think my computer downloaded a virus. I ran my computer in Safe mode and removed the Trojan but my sound is still not working correctly. Advertisements are constantly running on my audio devise but i'm still able to use my computer normally other than that. Even if I watch a video that sound will run simultaneously to the advertisements. I've downloaded the free Microsoft spyware software which didn't detect any problems and I've attempted to recover the computer to an earlier update numerous times but its not helping.
