Sound Fixed!

KevinJ sent me to this link, which had a lot of people griping about having no sound on Flash.

Actually, I was missing system sounds too, which I didn't mention, because who cares about system sounds? I was also, for some reason, missing the little speaker icon in the task-tray. It just went and vanished when all of this happened.

Anyway, here's the advice that fixed it, for anyone else who may have this problem. Spyware removal seems to be a culprit:

Finally !!!!!! And so simple.....

It was Registry problem.... caused by clean-up with Spayware Doctor.
Nothing to do with hardware.
So if Flash sound AND System sounds don't work here is the solution....

Get K-Lite Codec Pack 2.69 Standard

Install Package and then go to

**/K-Lite Codec Pack/Configuration/ and Run "Codec Tweak Tool"
tick "Fixes / [ Registry ] Fix Non-working system sound "
Run tool...

AND ..... system sounds are back and Flash sound is back......

I want to also thank ErikW for helping me with this, and a lot of other readers who have offered to help or suggested different fixes.

No more posting stuff I haven't heard yet! Whoo-hoo!
