I'm running Windows 8 on a slightly older HP laptop, and I've never had any real issues with it until last week.  I'm not sure if it's related to a program I installed which turned out to be malware (it installed "Conduit" software that hijacks my search engine and sends it to a "Centurylink" search engine instead of DuckDuckGo.  I haven't been able to expunge the malware from Chrome yet, but Firefox seems unaffected.


My bigger concern, though, is that Chrome won't play sounds through the headphones anymore.  Firefox, VLC, WMP, etc. all work fine through the headphones, but Chrome won't play any sounds.  The "connected" and "disconnected" beeps play through the headphones, and all sounds work through them on everything besides Chrome.  I've tried everything I can think of ussing Chrome's settings and tools, extensions.  The only thing I can imagine is that the Conduit/Centurylink malware changed some obscure setting I'm not aware of.  Does anyone have any idea what I might be missing?
