Last night I noticed that I'm not getting sounds of any kind in either IE or FireFox. Everything else on my PC plays sounds just fine (WMP, iTunes, etc.) but nothing will play with any sound while online (I tried youtube and several flash animatins, and nothing from any of them). The problem seems to be that my browsers aren't showing being registered by my sound card. If I open the sound mixer, any other program shows up when active, but neither browser does.

I'm running Win7 Pro with a AMD Phenom 2.3 Gig Quad Core Processor on an ASUS M3A78-EM motherboard with 4 Gigs of RAM. I'm running with all current updates installed and I've re-installed Flash, since a few forums I searched for similar problems suggested that as a possible solution, but no joy.

WARNING!!! This suggestion involves editing of the registry. Improper editing of the registry can cause your computer to become unbootable. ALWAYS backup your registry before modifying the registry.

To backup your registry, create a System Restore point. Alternatively, you can use the free utility ERUNT to create backups of your registry: http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/

For more information about modifying the registry, see this Microsoft article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/256986

======================================================================================

Download no_sound_in_browsers.reg file to your desktop.
Double click on it, and allow registry merge.
Restart computer.

Happily, no registry detangling was nedded....System Restore FTW! Apparently something got jiggered up since I was last on on Saturday afetrnoon. Did the restore, and everything seems to be sounding off just fine.
