The Wave volume keeps muting itself every minute or so. It's been happening for the past few days. I'm not sure when it exactly started. I tried a system restor but all the restore points were gone besides the one from the day before, so i restored it back to that day anyways and nothing changed. I have tried unplugging the interent connection and running antivirus programs in Safe mode without networking as well disabled safe mode before doing it so the virus cant reintroduce itself to the system through system restore. I've Ran Maleware Bytes, SuperAntiSpyware, and AVG 12 after doing this. Also lately I've been noticing a lot of windows updates that are prompted for updating. I've also used TddsKiller and HitmanPro while in normal Windows mode. I seen in another topid very similar to this one they said to d/l OTC and run that which I did(still to no prevail). I've also noticed when I run the Antivirus/Antimalware programs they are taking very long to run in safe mode. SAS took 7 hours, Malware Bytes took 5 hours, and AVG even took longer. I'm not sure what else to do. I use my computer for work and school and need the sound for many things, It's not only a distraction but it's putting a damper and time crunch on my work and school because of this problem. I would be very appreciative if someone would be willing to help fix this problem. I'm not what you would call a computer genius but I do know my way around a computer. I usually am able to fix it myself but this time has proven not to be as easy.
