I have some viruses on my computer and I'm waiting for someone to help get it fixed here(Help out please??) and my sound randomly started switching off today. It happened earlier today and I tried to see whether the sound was on mute by going on Volume Control but it gave a message saying:
" There are no active Mixer Devices Available. To install mixer devices go to Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Add Hardware.
This Program will now close"
So i went on Start > Run > services.msc > Windows Audio > General. Under Services Service Status it said the sound was stopped but I hadn't stopped it. So I pressed start again and it started working again. I rebooted my computer after that.
Just now the sound closed by itself again?? I was on firefox and the sound was still on when it suddenly exited on its own and a box came up asking if I would like to restore it and what I was on. That was when the sound stopped. I'm confused and would like some help please?? I just recently installed Online Armor Free (Firewall) and when I was setting it up I didn't know which programmes, auto-runs, etc, to allow so I might have accidently blocked something that caused this??
