    I'm working on building my os back up from a known working baseline snapshot with firstdefense isr. My audio works fine, and I can open and adjust the creative volume control, but though the windows volume icon is visible on the taskbar, it wont open. When I restart my computer, I get a window that reads "volume control encountered an error and needed to close" or close to that. I used driver cleaner pro to remove any traces of the sound driver then reinstalled, but i'm still getting the error. Does anyone know what might cause this? It's annoying, because I like to adjust the bass/treble on my system sometimes.
