Hi,

So how is with sound issue?

I would also like some suggestions on how to speed up a restart and the computer, in general.


Let's see what can be done.

Do you need this program?

Snapfish Picture Mover

If not please uninstall it.


We need to run an OTL Fix

  • Please right click on Posted Image on your desktop and click on Run as administrator.
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box copy and paste this in:

    :OTL
    O4 - HKLM..\Run: [AVG7_CC] File not found
    O4 - HKLM..\Run: [RecoverFromReboot] File not found
    O4 - HKU\S-1-5-21-3915128064-2678350003-1839924250-1008..\Run: [ModemOnHold] File not found
    O4 - HKU\S-1-5-21-3915128064-2678350003-1839924250-1008..\Run: [msnmsgr] File not found
    O4 - HKU\S-1-5-21-3915128064-2678350003-1839924250-1008..\Run: [OE_OEM] File not found

    :Files
    ipconfig /flushdns /c

    :Reg

    :Commands
    [purity]
    [resethosts]
    [emptytemp]
    [emptyflash]
    [createrestorepoint]
    [reboot]
  • Click on Posted Image button.
  • OTL may ask to reboot the machine. Please do so if asked.
  • Click on Posted Image button.
  • A report will open. Copy and Paste that report in your next reply.
  • If the machine reboots, the log will be located at C:\_OTL\MovedFiles\mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log, where mmddyyyy_hhmmss is the date of the tool run.

NEXT....

  • Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.
  • The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed.
  • Click the Startup tab.
  • I recommend you to disable following startup items:

    Adobe Reader Speed Launcher
    HostManager
    MioNet
    RoxioEngineUtility
    WD Drive Manager
    Windows Defender
  • Click OK and when you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.

NEXT....

Download and run Puran Disc Defragmenter.
For the first run I would recommend a boot defrag and disk check.

NOTE:
I do have sound, but when I click on "Place Volume Icon in Taskbar" I get an error that says.. "Windows cannot display the volume control on the taskbar because the Volume Control program has not been installed. To install it, use Add/Remove Program in Control Panel."

Hi,

For your sound icon issue please do the following:

Open your Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\System32 folder. Check if file Sndvol32.exe is there.

If the Sndvol32.exe file is damaged or missing, you must extract a new copy of the Sndvol32.exe file from the Windows XP CD and save it on your computer's hard disk.

Prerequisites

This method requires you to have your Windows XP installation CD.

To extract a copy of the Sndvol32.exe file from the Windows XP CD and save it on your computer's hard disk, follow these steps:

  • Insert the Windows XP CD into your computer's CD drive or DVD drive. Press and hold the SHIFT key as you insert the CD to prevent it from starting automatically.
  • Click Start, and then click Run.
  • Copy and paste or type the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
    cmd
  • The command prompt opens.
  • Type the drive letter of the CD drive or DVD drive, type a colon, and then press ENTER. For example, if your computer's CD drive is drive D, type the following, and then press ENTER:
    d:
  • Copy and paste or type the following, and then press ENTER:
    cd i386
  • Copy and paste or type the following, and then press ENTER:
    expand sndvol32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\sndvol32.exe
    Note There is a space between "ex_" and "c:\windows" in this command.
  • Type exit to exit the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
  • Verify that you can start Volume Control and that the Volume icon is displayed in the notification area.

If the Volume icon is displayed in the notification area, you are finished.

I cannot find the file, nor do I have any clue where my XP cd is. I'll have to check back home next time I go there, I'll look around here some more.

Hi,

If you have access to some clean computer with Windows XP SP3 you may copy that file from there.
