I turned my computer on today and my internet wouldn't work, i also opened up media monkey and my music wouldn't play. Instead, it would just skip over that song and turn it gray instead of black, and go through each song pretty fast. I tried playing music with vlc and wmp, neither worked.
I had this same problem about a week ago, and i'm pretty sure i fixed it by just doing a system restore, so i tried that and now opera 9.5 works, but firefox 3 does not, and still no music.
I've tried closing media monkey (through task manager-won't close on it's own when trying to play music) and restarting mm, and every once in a while there will be a ffdshow popup asking me if i want to use ffdshow or not i've tried yes and no with no success. So then i tried to uninstall ffdshow but it gives me message: "File 'C:\program files\ffdshow\unins000.dat' does not exist. cannot uninstall". I also tried to uninstall a different program, orbit download manager, and got the same message. But another program, malwarebytes' anti-malware, was able to uninstall.
Also, there are no problems in the device manager, and my computer can play windows sounds (that annoying beep). Also, through opera, i can't hear sound. videos play without music, myspace appers to play song, but i don't hear any thing. And when i go to a radio station's website, the window that plays their radio station fails to load.
I have a dell dimension e510, xp pro sp2, 1 gb ram, intel 8280 1gb ICH7-high definiton audo controller, and dell DM051 motherboard (via everest)
:thumbsup:

I restarted my computer again and now opera doesn't work again. Also, i tried playing a dvd through vlc and wmp and neither worked. wmp gave a message about not having the right dvd decrypter.

Today everything works again except firefox-gives me a 'crash, bang, boom' message. last night i ran the 'daily maintenece' in advanced windows care 3 beta 2.5, which cleaned the registry. when i went to see what i would clean from the registry it was just some old activex and 'super encoder'-that i uninstalled yesterday- issues. why would cleaning out the registry with awc fix my internet and music issue?
