For some time now,I have no sounds anywhere, and no audio in Windows Media Player 9.

I'm not sure just when exactly I lost it or what might have happened just prior to loosing all the sounds or audio.
Doing a System restore to April did not bring it back, but maybe I did not go back far enough?

I've done all the usual checking around in device manager and it says No Problems found on all the different things I could check.


1: Some time ago, I went to the Manage Add-Ons box and checked a few things that I thought might bring in add-ware and such,like browser helper items, to disable them.
One of them was Shockwave Flash Object.
Could putting this on the disabled list caused me to loose sound?

2:Just today, a new icon has appeared in the system tray near the time and day that when I click on it it says " a new Macromedia Flash Player is available"
Has this come from the recent Windows Up-dates that I get automatically...and do I need this for sound or is it just another Player?

3: The little "manage add-ons" icon down by the system tray (next to the globe icon)has an exclamation on it and it didn't used to....What does this mean?And
how do you know what add-ons to enable or dis-able?

I know this is a lot of questions so I appreciate any answers I may get.

Thanks a bunch,
