Someone in my house apparently is extremely computer illiterate/nosey or hates me with A passion because computers in this house are constantly developing problem after problem and I know it is not being accesed remotely nor are there any spyware/malware problems.

Someone keeps deleting my profile off of this computer and everytime I reinstall it it is removed the next day.

Also someone somehow managed to remove sndvol32.exe!!! If you don't know what this is, it is A windows system file in which displays that speaker icon in your taskbar. If this is deleted you will have no sound... Well I have no clue how but it happened and now I can't get it back!

Someone please help me find A way to reinstall this (without reinstalling windows) any prevent and further tampering of my account. I would also appreciate it if someone could direct me to some free but efficient monitoring tools.

My thanks ahead of time.

Here's a nice, free tool from Microsoft that will help to secure the shared computer (it's called the "Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP"): http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en

Thank you both:

Yes the extraction worked. Sndvol32.exe now works! :thumbsup:

but when I installed the "shared computer toolkit" I didn't tell it to run immediatly so I have no clue where it installed to (obviously somewhere in the windows folder...). Oh well.

Thanks be to the both of you. I'm glad I didn't have to re-install windows completely.

It is probably in C:/Program Files/Microsoft Shared Computer Tool Kit

But you can start it by going to:

Start > All Programs > MS Shared Computer Tool Kit

Unless you told it to install elsewhere?
