Ok, I have been to youtube.com, yahoo.com and multiple news websites and none of the sounds are working on here. I am able to listen to music on my computer and also I can hear games when playing such as Spider Solitaire, and pinball. I have tried both Internet Explorer and Firefox but neither websites produce sounds. Anyone know a quick fix for this? Thanks a BUNCH!

how are you connecting to the internet
dialup
broadband
cable
dialup usually causes something like this
did these programs work before
like youtobe or news
are you up to date with java

update your sound drivers and if it continues not to work
try a system restore ...go back a few days when it was working
copy and paste this in your run command

C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

start/run/ C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe /click ok

click next when system restore opens ....choose a restore point in bold/click next and follow the prompts

I don't generally start looking at Windows processes with these issues. More often than not this ends up being a driver/hardware related issue. Is your sound provided by an on-board chip or an actual pci-based sound card? Regardless of which, what make/model/brand of motherboard do you have? Or make/model/brand computer, if something like a Dell/IBM/HP that tend to be extremely proprietery with their drivers.
