==============================
Sounds like Chipmunks...

If you have a Realtek Audio Driver...
This can be caused by the karaoke
settings in Realtek Sound Effect Manager.

Go to the control panel and open Sound
Effect of Manager / sound effect tab...
Karaoke set to + 0

  • Problems with error Windows Media Player, that Windows Media Player is not installed on the computer.

    We have a computer that is running Windows 7 and (I think) Windows Media Player 12.  When I start ==> all programs ==> windows media player, the program starts and it seems to work.  It is a work computer, so no video or audio file is saved.

    We have an online seminar that the user wants to participate in, and when we click on the link to get the webinar, an error message appears saying that Windows Media Player is not installed on the computer.

    We use Firefox (version reasonably updated, but do not know which) for internet.

    I used the "fix it" tool on the website of Microsoft, but that does not solve anything.  He said it sets some configuration settings.  I thought that maybe uninstall and reinstall it can work, but I can't understand completely uninstall because it isn't in my list of programs in the control panel.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for any ideas you may have.

    (Moved to programs)

    Uninstall and reinstall could be done by searching for and opening the option "turn on or off Windows features", but I don't think it will help.

    Instead, what you need is a Windows Media Player plugin for your browser (Firefox).

    But before you spend effort on it, I would test to see if it's really the solution.  Try to join your webinar with Internet Explorer (where the WMP plugin is built).  If it works, you can be reasonably sure to know how to make it work with Firefox.

  • Having a problem with my Windows Media Player... Help!

    I've been ripping CDs from my husband for more than four years and now starting to have a problem with it.  All of a sudden I can record a cd and it works very well and a minute later, put in another and it says cannot save.  What gives with that?  It is not at all an error state.  It does not is not an error for this good state.

    I went to see what I could find and came across a site (don't have a clue right now that that) who said that I should connect to the internet.  Huh?  I don't know that I recorded at some point without the use of the Internet.   Although I ran into a problem with the names of the songs that were not correct on some of the Conference on disarmament, but don't remember if I was on it or not.  So I went on the internet... same thing... still won't save.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Sometimes things just die. I recently discovered the disk drive in my computer laptop just spits discs now and it is about 4 years older. I still used it a lot and for the first time in a year, wanted to watch a DVD. Well.

  • I have a problem with the content of spam. Somewhere in the Fox appeared script that's choking me audio spam. Every 30 minutes he's playing an audio clip that is malicious.

    Hello.
    I have a problem with the content of spam. Somewhere in the Fox appeared script that's choking me audio spam. Every 30 minutes he's playing an audio clip that is malicious. I can't find the settings as it eliminated. Now, I don't have any plug-ins and Add-ons strange that were not initially in the Fox, but the problem is there.
    I use the Fox years. The problem, he had 1.5 months after Fox cleaning. If the problem can't win, I'll be forced to give up the browser, and I wouldn't.

    Could test you mode without failure of Firefox? It is a standard diagnostic tool to disable some advanced features of Firefox and extensions. More info: questions to troubleshoot Firefox in Safe Mode.

    Does not work if Firefox: Hold down the SHIFT key when you start Firefox.

    If Firefox is running: You can restart Firefox in Mode safe mode using either:

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > restart with disabled modules
    • Help menu > restart with disabled modules

    and OK reboot.

    Two scenarios: A small dialog box should appear. Click on 'Start mode safe' (not update).

    Any improvement?

    If the problem persists in Mode without failure, could reinstall you Firefox in this way:

    Clean reinstall it

    We use this name, but it isn't about deleting your settings, this is to ensure that the program, files are clean (not incompatible, corrupt or exotic code files). As described below, this process does not disrupt your existing settings. Don't uninstall NOT Firefox, that does not need.

    (1) download a fresh Installer for Firefox 38.0.5 of https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/ in an ideal location. (Scroll down your preferred language).

    (2) close Firefox (if applicable).

    (3) to rename the program folder, either:

    (Windows 64-bit folder names)

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
    

    TO

    C:\Program Files (x86)\OldFirefox
    

    (Windows 32-bit folder names)

    C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
    

    TO

    C:\Program Files\OldFirefox
    

    (4) run the installer you downloaded in the #1. It should automatically connect to your existing settings.

    Any improvement?

    Note: Some plugins can only exist in this OldFirefox file. If it is missing something essential, present in these files:

    • \OldFirefox\Plugins
    • \OldFirefox\browser\plugins

  • have a problem with my Windows Services.

    I have a problem with my Windows Services.
    Every time when I run the Windows Services window, I get a warning:

    One or more activex controls could not be displayed because that is:
    1. your current security settings prohibit running activex
    the controls on this page, or
    2. you have blocked an editor of one of the controls.
    for example, the page may not display correctly.

    The warning popup opens only when I click on the extended tab.
    The problem has nothing to do with the security of IE, because I can open pages with ActiveX controls on them and so.

    I installed the Spybot spyware/malware removal tool. Then uninstalled.
    I don't know if this is the cause of the problem. But I assume that it is.

    So, maybe someone faced the same problem and knows the cause for it.
