A couple of days ago I ran a Ad-Aware spyware scan on my computer. It must obviously have messed up my register and deleted something that shouldn't have been deleted. All Windows sounds are gone, and also the audio of Flash Video Streams (maybe other streams too not sure about that.) While programs like VLC can play video with sound, and Winamp can play music files with sound perfectly. I've tried reinstalling Flash several times, and i've tried using both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Anyway, I've read alot about this, and I've tried LOTS of things too
in the end the problem that came closest to mine (pretty much completely the same actually) was this one: https://www.nosystemsounds.com/
now, I had tried using K-Lite Codec Pack's Codec Tweak Tool already but with no luck. So after discovering the earlier meantioned link (https://www.nosystemsounds.com/
) I've become almost sure that, that must be the problem i've experienced myself. Now, the only problem is that my "Fixes:" menu dosn't look like the one on his site. It has these options:
Detect Broken Codecs
Detect Broken DirectShow filters
Register base DirectShow filters (quartz.dll)
Register base DirectShow filters (qdvd.dll qcap.dll qedit.dll)
Fix broken sound (Midi, WaveOut)
I've tried dowloading various versions of Codec Tweak Tool all the way down to 2.0.0 (I believe the newest is 2.6.2 or thereabouts) and they all looked under the "Fixes:" menu.
Hope someone have some kind of idea why this is, and maybe a solution , or other version of the program that would do the trick.
Hope Windows XP is the right place to post this
All help would be very greatly appreciated.
