    I just got Nod32 and my issue is just what the topic is. Now I can hear no sound for videos from google video, youtube.com, even embedded sounds on myspace. I tried reinstalling Macromedia Flash and Shockwave players, reinstalling Firefox, uninstalling Nod....no luck on any of it. Also, I got no sound in IE either. After installing Nod32 I went found Blackspear's post from 2004 and set all my Nod settings to what he recommended.

    Has anyone had this sort of trouble before? How did you fix it short of reinstalling Windows?


    Much obliged!

    Hi Javyn, welcome to Wilders.

    I have never seen Nod32 do this in my life, and I have installed it on hundreds of machines. Have you tried updating your sound card driver?

    Cheers :D

    Wow thanks for the quick response BS. Yes, my drivers are up to date...and sound works fine when I load up an mp3 or video file from the hard drive. This is specifically a browser problem.

    I noticed when I tried to watch a video from youtube.com in IE it would not play it at all, telling me I have JavaScript disabled...which I checked...it is enabled on both browsers. This really has me scratching my head.

    Do you use a proxy? I have seen issues with Javascripts and Proxies.

    Cheers :D

    This happens in Internet Explorer and Firefox? Are there any programs with sound that do work at all?

    If you disable IMON, does the problem go away?
