    Hello everyone,

    I have a problem with my creative x-fi software, in the sense that when I bought my computer there was an icon in the system tray that would allow me, amongst other things, to change the mode of my sound i.e. Multimedia, Gaming and Creation. I updated my drivers and software for this and now the icon has gone and it is replaced by the rather dull windows standard one. That only allows me to turn the volume up.

    I have Windows 7 Ultimate, but previously I had Vistam and the icon wasn't showing in there after I updated the software. Does anyone have a solution to this? I have looked on the Creative site and cannot find anything to resolve this.

    Thanks in advance.

    if you have an installation disc for your creative sound card, reinstall it & stay away from web updates unless they're offered by your computer manuf. creative cards can be finicky!
