Specs: Windows 8.1
some of my games don't have sound and i checked if its my headphones or if its the monitor i'm using but its my PC that wont allow sound on mostly of my games. (i recently downloaded a virus but i got it cleaned so it may be something it deleted)

Are you 100% sure your system is clean? Which AV program did you use? These 2 will get rid of some of the nasties the AV sometimes miss:

AdwCleaner: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...

Junkware Removal Tool: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...

Other than that, did you try reinstalling your audio drivers?

If anything like a virus was on my computer I would backup everything, format the hdd and reinstall windows. I use Killdisk so there's no possibility of anything surviving on the hdd. Then put your drivers back and it will probably work.

If you don't want to do that you could try downloading the audio drivers for your pc motherboard or laptop and seeing if that helps. Maybe try installing the latest version of direct x. Perhaps reinstall the games over the top and see if that fixes them but it sounds like a driver issue if not related to the virus.

You can post (copy/paste) the logs from Malwarebytes and Junkware Remaval here for someone to review and make sure you are clean.
Reinstalling driver may help if corrupted by infection.
Check volume icon in the tray (bottom right of your screen) to make sure that that volume is set high enough. Most laptops as well as some keyboards and all-in-ones have a manual volume control that is separate. If you use a manual volume control here or on your speakers and the Windows volume in the tray is too low, you may not hear the sound or it may be minimal in certain instances. In this case it should probably be at least 3/4 of the way up or higher.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
