My computer has decided that it only wants to allow sounds from Windows Live Messenger and Windows Media Player! No other sounds will play on my computer. The volume icon is missing from my task bar as well.
So far I have:
1. Gone into my sounds and audio devices through the Control Panel and tried to uncheck/recheck the volume icon box (it's already checked and I've unchecked/rechecked several times). Still no icon.
2. Checked that all of my sounds are not muted.
3. Device manager says everything is working properly!
4. Re-installed the latest version of Adobe to be used on Youtube because I can see the videos there, but cannot hear them.
I would love to get this resolved as soon as possible.
Thanks for any help!
