went online because my computer has something called C-Media Mixer instead of the standard Volume control. Its not that bad excpet the fact is it wont let me open it (sometimes it does, but less than 10% of the time when i log on) and it makes my Mic for Vent not work unless its opened. Is there a way to get rid of this and get my standard volume controlls back?

C-Media audio chipsets are often found on motherboards with on-board audio and provides system tray access to change audio settings. This is an unnecessary startup entry which you can safely disable.

If you have have Spybot S&D installed, go to Mode and select Advanced. Then go to Tools, select System Startups. You will be provided with a list of programs that load when Windows starts. If you untick the entry (Mixer.exe) it will no longer run at startup.

If you don't have starter then use one of these startup managers:
Autoruns: http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Autoruns.html
Starter by CodeStuff: http://codestuff.cjb.net/

Edit: Almost forgot. Then go to Start > Control Panel and select Sounds & Audio Devices Properties. Place a check mark in the box next to "Place volume icon in the taskbar".

You might want to check with another family member who has the same OS and borrow the CD so you can do the fix.
