Windows 7: Audio Driver wont enable, No Sound and Stereo mix disabled? Virus?

Audio Driver wont enable, No Sound and Stereo mix disabled? Virus?

I have no idea what's going on, I connected a midi usb interface after work to connect a synthesizer,
Behringer UMC204HD and i doubt that messed up my computer.
it didn't work all i heard was a loud hiss and the behringer interface didn't work.
so i uninstalled it.
also when i connected it, Microsoft couldn't find the driver.
so i installed it manually. then removed it.

I uninstalled real tek, reinstalled and now it wont play anything.

At first I could listen to music but my stereo mix was disabled and i couldn't disable my microphone.
I thought that was weird so i uninstalled and reinstalled and now i cant hear music at all.
only when i used the asio driver in FL Studio or Ableton Live (music making software)
So I can still get sound just not from the original drivers!

Could it have been a windows update? or did the usb midi interface mess up my audio card?
i don't have an audio card i use a stock asus amd a6 i think, i've been at this for 24 hours.

If anyone can please help me I'll send you a donation on paypal for a pizza.
I can play video games and everything, but I just want my computer back to normal,
so the problem is No sound, Audio driver disabled.
only when using another driver, like in a music making program.
I've tried everything in the book.

also i've installed every windows update and nothing.
could there be something wrong in my settings?
i posted in a forum couple months ago and they helped me with a fix on a windows update flickering my screen. could they have maybe edited something in my settings?
I cant find the damn page

but anyways, flash forward to now i cant enable audio driver.
should i install the 32 bit realtek audio driver?
im on 64 bit windows 7 so idk......
also everytime i uninstall the realtek driver, microsoft updates it to hd audio driver.

damn, i'm stressed out, hopefully someone can help me.
