How I lost the system sounds
I installed a Spy ware cleaner which most people now use on a daily basis, thinking "Great, not only am I cleaning my computer of any spy ware I will also be cleaning the registry up and get rid of everything it doesn't need" WRONG!
After doing this I quickly noticed, I couldn't hear any sounds made by XP, MSN, Flash files so basically couldn't hear sound from YouTube, Google and any other site with sound in a flash file.
What I didn't realise was it was deleting a registry key that should not be deleted and because I don't know which registry key they were I couldn't restore them... Well after months of googling and reading various topics on how to fix it nothing worked!
I tried all sorts, from reg fixes, windows restore, installing drivers again, changing the pci slot for the sound card but nothing worked!
After posting on loads of forums most people agreed the only way to get it back was to do re-install my copy of Windows! I didn't want to do that! There had to be another way!
Well I found it!
