My concern began when I was burning a CD and I lost my sound, both system and from my CD drive. After downloading Windows Media Player, and downloading hardware drivers, I thought about cleaning the registry. I still have no sound. There are several Registry cleaners available on-line, but then I read a survey that stated "Beware". I don't want to spend $60 and find that it won't fix my problem or even worse; destroy it. First: am I on the wrong track Second: is it a good idea to purchase a registry cleaner?

I would strongly recommend against purchasing or using a registry cleaner. It's possible for them to remove items which shouldn't be removed, rendering your PC unusable. Also, I'm not sure that cleaning your registry would be the right answer to getting your sound back, since it's not clear what caused it to disappear. I would suggest posting for help in this forum, so someone can help you troubleshoot the issue.
