    I was deleting files on my computer yesterday for some spring cleaning and I may have accidentally deleted a program which controls my audio playback and recording. when I right click on the icon in the lower right corner of my home screen, It shows no disabled devices or disconnected devices are available. Oh, and for reference, I was only deleting from my documents files. I have already emptied my trash. I also had sound for the following four or five hours, but then the sound would go off after five or ten minutes of play. A few hours later, the sound completely stopped and that was when the message appeared on my sound icon. Thanks for any help.

    cheers:)

    A few quick comments for now:
    Your description says you have SP1, is this updated? If yes, please install SP2, it has a lot of fixes and updates.
    Did you try a system restore?
    Did you do a Virus and Malware scan?
