Can you still access the sound area and volume controls via Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume control
and adjust those slide controls -
Thank You -

Hi again -
As you mentioned that this occured as/after a Youtube download, have you checked for malware/minor infections -
You can dodwload then update Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware (free) from these links below -
Ignore any other free advertised items on download pages and only load the programs you need -
This is just to do a first check, and if something is found we can do more later to try other fixes -
Thank You -

Hi Again -
I know that this has worked in other cases (mine included) - Also make sure you have DirectX 10 installed -
Link to DirectX update http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3
Go to Start then Run... then enter dxdiag to see the DirectX diagnostic tool:
Make sure SSDP Discovery Service and Universal Plug and Play Device Host are both set to Disabled in Computer Management Services.
Right click on My Computer in Start then Manage then expand Services and Applications then Services and scroll down to SSDP Discovery Service then right click for Properties then make Startup type: Disabled
You may want to install User Profile Hive Cleanup Service
A service to help with slow log off and unreconciled profile problems.
Thank You -
EDIT - Also look on this page:
there is a reg file called 'Sound Icon - Enable' - Item 316.5

@ justinlaughlin898 - That is all you do as this SSDP Discovery Service item should work - Sorry Information overloaded -
I installed UPHClean. Am I supposed to run it? I ran it but I'm not sure if anything happened.

Hi Q-E -
Does that include uninstalling then reinstalling your sound device drivers?
