I'm new to this forum and hope someone can help. I'm having problems with my audio, system restore, and search companion (among other things) since running msconfig last weekend and disabling items in services and startup, also deleted items in regedit (need2find crap), just trying to clean up my computer and improve performance. In the device manager its says there is no audio device. When I try to open Windows Media Player, nothing happens, same thing with search companion, nothing. I then tried Real Player and it gives me a message "cannot open the audio device. Another application may be using it." Also, in msconfig under the startup tab, Windows Audio is stopped.

I was going to try and follow instructions from Grinler from his post "how to fix windows media player error" (reregister the jscript.dll and vbscript.dll files). I did this with success, but when I went to regedit per his instructions to find the registry key hkey_local_machine\software\classes\CLSID\{f414c260-6ac0-11cf-b6d1-00aa00bbbb58}\In procServer32 to change the value data, that particular key is not there.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated - I'm running Windows XP on a Dell Dimension 2400 (purchased new December 2004).
