If you've had system changes that you didn't make & you've not let others use your computer, it may be a good time to run a Full system scan with your installed security software to check for infections. These settings just doesn't change by themselves, even if the CMOS battery went bad, everything would revert to default settings.


Otherwise, go to Start>Accessories>System Restore. Pick a restore point from the list, one that you knew your default sound was being played, it'll take a few minutes & restore to that date. This procedure can be reversed if it doesn't work with no changes made.


You can also go into Sounds from the Control Panel & choose Windows Default.


But again, this didn't change on it's own. Unless something was pressed by accident & you know it, you do need to run a system scan with updated security software. It's good practice to be doing this regularly anyway, if this is your daily used computer, it needs to be fully scanned every 2 days at the least. You don't have to stand & watch it, let it run while you're running errands, sleeping, whatever.



Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
