harrycarey, Try system restore to a time before you deleted
audio program.

Hit,Start, all programs, Accessories, system tools, system
Restore, click on restore my computer to an earlier time, then
pick a date before you deleted it. then click next.

Hi harrycarey,
If it does (i think it will) you can install them again can't you?
when you do a system restore you can also
undo it and put it back the way it is now, so you
could try it and see if it get your audio program back.

give this a try
SYSTEM RESTORE from safe mode
See if you can get in safe mode,try this
1. Restart your computer, and keep tapping F8 during the initial start-up
until you get options, select Safe Mode with a command prompt then press enter.

2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that
has administrator credentials.

3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.

Look for the most recent system checkpoint created before the errors to restore
From....
I hope this works for you.

If you have the original drivers disk of the computer reinstall sound driver. If you don't, download and install Everest Home edition from here in "motherboard" identify the manufacturer's name and model of the board, enter the manufacturer's internet site, download install the sound driver.
