Default Strange sound problem

sorry, i'm not sure, if this ist a software ore a spyware/virus problem.

I got a strange problem at my computer. The sound vanished at games, some software, windows mediaplayer 10 and win-amp.
First I thought it might be a problem with the sound card. But the sound works with Cyberlink DVD player.
How can I solve that problem?
One thing more. I discovered that some freegames and adaware (free version) were suddenly unusable or uninstalled (ca.80%). I don't know, if it's a problem with a virus. But I scanned my computer with adaware, avg, spywaredoctor, stinger, Spybot and nothing turned up.

I didn't install any new software or a device in the past weeks.

I have a PT4, xp pro sp2 included all new updates.

Thanks for your help

Try uninstalling your sound card and letting Windows reinstall it.
