A few months ago I had some major malware problems, eventually got everything cleaned up and then got carried away disabling services/processes in order to speed up computer some more...

Some audio files work fine, there's no problem with the speakers, but some don't play any sound. On sports sites for instance, the multimedia audio plays, but no audio on YouTube. I know it's a process/service that I've interrupted and can't figure out which one....PLEASE help restore this, thanks!

Try this:
Double click the speaker icon in the bottom right, and check none of the options are set to mute.
Then upgrade your version of Flash Player. http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/do...=ShockwaveFlash

After you've updated, if it still doesn't work, try this:
Open Command Prompt (Start->Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt or Start-> Run-> CMD)
Type the following:
net stop "Windows Audio" && net start "Windows Audio"
Then try again.
