Default network interfaces messed up drivers

This PC was hit by some viruses and then, after taking care of the viruses, All (4) network interfaces have an exclaimation point by them in the Device Manager. All of them are in the "Unknown" Category. These 4 network devices include 2 regular NICs, a wireless card, and the Firewire Network interface. I tried reinstalling the drivers. It just isn't working. I've tried everything I now how to do. I use AVG Anti-Virus, Ad-aware SE Personal, and Spybot Search&Destroy. They show that everything is fine and YES I have updated them all. Any thoughts fellas?
