My son said that I had too many programs. I deleted, among many, the yellow speaker on my task bar (?) and the sound program. I thought I didn't need it since I never used it. When I realized that I was not hearing the normal sounds, I went into the help menu and tried to regain the sounds. Something went wrong because the only sound I now hear is a rapid ticking. When I open the Volume Control, the wave column shows three green bars in the Wave Balance column. Is there any way I can correct this short of using the Windows 98 SE Start-Up disc? Many thanks.
