My friend gave me a wireless USB dongle to use with my Xbox 360 controller for my PC tower.  For whatever reason, Windows wasn't recognizing the dongle so I forcibly-assigned the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller driver present in Windows 10 to the dongle.  Now, I can connect my Xbox 360 controller, but I have lost all sound output.  I have tried updated drivers, reinstalling, and disabling specific drivers to no avail.  At one point, uninstalling this Creative sound driver(which worked earlier) made my sound work for an hour, but now my sound doesn't work again.  Can someone help me with this issue?  I don't want to reinstall Windows and lose all the applications a friend downloaded for me.

Have you tried using a system restore point from before you began your adventures with the dongle?  There's almost certainly one there that predates this work but that would include all of your current programs and apps.  Even if it doesn't, it had ought to be awfully close and only involve reinstalling an item or two.
