Windows 7: I have a ton of missing drivers?

01 Sep 2012   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
I have a ton of missing drivers?

Alright, so I had a virus and I fixed it, but now I need something to fix all of my missing drivers. I believe the virus deleted them all.
Anyways, I downloaded Autorun because my mabinogi wouldn't open because of a hackshield error, and it shows a ton of missing drivers. My taskmanager wasn't working either because of a missing .dll and I did a command prompt thing that was supposed to replace all the missing files with microsoft ones, but now I can't update windows or anything because of missing services.
So does anyone know how to fix it?

Please post the name of the dll that task manager says you're missing. Don't go downloading them from dll file sites on the internet, they're almost always outdated and only cause more problems in the long term.

It'd also be a good idea to post your hackshield error, I've had to fix countless problems with hackshield over the years ._.

This'll probably come as a stupid question, but have you attempted to use system restore to revert back however many days/weeks/months ago you acquired this virus?

If all else fails it'd be wise to reinstall windows 7, sounds like an incredibly nasty virus.
