"I ran installed Malware from a disc..."

Do you mean you ran Malwarebytes ?

"how to I get it to the hardware devices"

In Vista or Windows 7 -
Double click on the Computer icon, click on System properties in the top bar, Device Manager is on the left.

A high speed modem does not show up in Device Manager, but a dial-up modem does if he's got one.

What problem(s) are you trying to fix ?

You should not be connected to the internet when trying to remove that many infections.

You will never have much luck getting rid of one virus let alone 300 in most cases.

Just get the original disks and do a full clean new install.
