Do you have Quicktime or Quicktime Alternative (my preference) installed? If not, try one or the other and see if that resolves the problem.

Quicktime Alternative
Apple Quicktime

Since you are using limewire, you may have picked up some malware. Read through this area:

Cleanup Your System.

This takes care of the many of the problems without further action by the Malware Gurus on this site.

If this doesn't do it, post a HijackThis log here:

Malware Removal Forum.

Make sure you read the You Must Read This Before Posting A Hijackthis Log article before posting.

Please be patient, this is a very active anti-malware site and the malware removal experts are extremely busy. It can take 1 to 3 days for them to get to you.

i really dont think that its anything that was picked up from limewire. ill try this but the reason idotn think its a lime wire thing is because this has happened once before on this computer and just magically came back. i think its my computer... not any software. someone posted something on another forum that looked like it would have worked only it was for a diff. computer type so i would need diffrent directions. ill show you what they said and maybe youll understand and givem e directions for windows vista.

here is how it was a posting on an adobe fourm I found about 6 pages deep on the google search for no sound from youtube:

Alright the problem is really the mapping of wavemapper in Windows registry as reported by one member of the forum. All you need to do is to open registry editor by going to Start menu, Run, typing regedit and then Enter. After that, in the registry editor, walk yourself through the tree in the left pane, till you reach

My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32

And then on the right pane, right click and click on New, select String value, enter "wavemapper" (without quots of course), ENTER, type "msacm32.drv", ENTER.

Close the editor. No need to restart. Video on Google and YouTube et al would work fine now.

Thanks to the member who pointed out the key. I just mentioned the procedure.

Sorry, I don't have Vista. I did check and I do have that key on my XP Pro system though. Have you tried creating it as written? Shouldn't hurt anything and who knows, it may fix it.

Edit: I asked for some help from a Vista knowledgeable person.

I would say check your volume in vista each program has it's own individual volume meters.

More help on this. The reg key is valid in Vista so if it is not an individual volume problem, try adding the registry key.

As always, before you make any changes to the registry, please back it up. An excellent way to do this is to install ERUNT. Let it add an entry to your Start menu during the install process. That will allow ERUNT to backup your registry each time you boot. It only takes a few seconds and has no real impact on boot time. Run ERUNT immediately after installing it to create a full registry backup.

Edit: Just realized I don't know if ERUNT works with Vista or not. Will have to check.

Pressing Windows Key + R should bring up the Run dialog, at least it does in XP.
