When clicking volume in WinAmp my wave setting in Volume Ctrl drops.

Q: When clicking volume in WinAmp my wave setting in Volume Ctrl drops.

This on is quite perplexing to me. This is stemming from a volume problem that I had posted before. I have more detail and have narrowed down the problem but not the cause of such. When ever I click the volume control in winamp, not adjust necessarily, just click, my wave setting in my volume control (pannel that comes up by double clicking the speaker in the tray) drops. Of course this affects my overall volume. It is sparatic and does not drop the same amount two times in a row but will drop everytime I click volume in winamp. I am running winXP pro and have not installed so much as an update since the last time this was happening. The only thing I did change is I set up voice recognition in Office XP but I was having this problem before that. I have uninstalled and cleaned out all winamp files and reinstalled. Any suggestions? Winamp is the only player of any kind that this currently happens with.

Also, whenever I am using winamp to play an mp3 or streaming audio and I open another program, any program, or even just minimize/maximize a window, the audio starts cracking. This also has never happend before except of course when there is a heavy load on the system. As I said I am running XP pro, and FYI a Duron 900 cpu and 448MB RAM. As I am having these problems I am using 5% to 10% of my cpu and have 21000k physical memory availible according to task mgr.

Thanks.

Preferred Solution: When clicking volume in WinAmp my wave setting in Volume Ctrl drops.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm not sure if this happened with 5.55, but with 5.56, when I hit the volume up or down on my keyboard to turn the sound down for everything, it turns down winamp's volume bar too. Sometimes I can move winamp's volume bar up and down and it won't even be working. What causes this? It's pretty annoying for the music to turn down twice as fast or winamp's volume bar to not even work at all.EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forum

I've been battling this invisible foe for two days and it seems I met my match. It varies in severity, sometimes it does nothing and other times it clicks and clacks and makes funny noises from invisible ads. My wave volume will mysteriously be lowered so it seems I have no sound. I did all the steps and all the logs, I just need some help. Thank you.

Hi. I hope the title wasn't too detailed.
I believe I have the same infection as a few other posts I've been seeing around the next the last couple of days.
NOD32 detected a Mebroot Trojan it can't clean in the operating memory, and I believe it's causing my PC's weird behavior.
Every now and then the volume wave drops to 0 (mute), and every now and then IE ad popups appear, even though I am a Firefox user, and I can hear clicking noises in the background every now and then.
I would really appreciate any help I can get removing this. What I fear most is that it will spread to other computers on the network or to my IM/email/FB contacts.

Also, here is a HijackThis log, the pinned guide said I should post this.

Thank you very much to anyone willing to help!

Short Story
Wave meter in volume control keeps stopping. I googled it, seems to be a virus. Performed a virus scan, came up with nothing. Did it with another anti-virus program, also showed nothing. Need help. Thanks.

Long Story
So basically, I wanted to watch a youtube video. When I played it, there was no sound. Thinking it was a simple volume problem, I checked the video volume, the small icon on the taskbar, and even went into the control panel to adjust the volume settings. I thought it might be my headphones, but I tried using the speakers and neither worked. I tried doing the voice playback, and then I could hear my voice. I thought maybe it was fixed. Played the video, no sound. At that point I thought it was my sound card. I didn't want to replace it, so I kept trying to look for a better solution. After much frustration, I managed to make my way into the volume control. Start - Control Panel - Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices - Adjust the System Volume - Audio - Sound Playback: Default Device: SoundMAX Digital Audio - Volume - Wave. I saw that the Wave option was all the way down, and moved it up. After moving it, I could hear the video crystal clear, so I closed all the windows I didn't need anymore. Well, after about 30 seconds, the volume shut off again. I went back into volume control, and the wave bar was all the way down again. I raised it, and closed the window. I was looking for the apply button to become available, for I had assumed that not app... Read more

Help - I am running Windows XP Home Edition SP3 on Dell PC with IE8. A while back I had a recycler virus which attached itself to my ESET NOD 32 Antivirus 4 and also made my wave bar go to minimum in my volume control sector. I got rid of the problem I thought by finally running Housecall. Everything was fine until now, a month later, and my computer is freezing up and the wave bar is down again. I have to manually hold in the power button to shut down and restart and things are OK for a little while until it locks up again. I ran ESET NOD 32 Antivirus, Malaware, Spybot and Housecall in both reg and safe mode and found no infections, viruses or spyware. Could it be that the recycler virus pops up periodically and how do I get rid of it. I would need to click on a link as I am not computer knowledgable. Thanks.

Hello, I have been following all the steps that have led me to this point. My computer (Windows XP) seems to have been infected by some sort of Trojan or Malware (I'm not tech savvy, so I apologize if I am using the wrong terms, but definitely at some point a Trojan hit my computer). I have Norton Antivirus and for a little bit it appeared as though it had removed the infection, but the wave volume keeps going to 0. I have tried other solutions, but they have been impermanent. I am writing here because I've seen that the results have been great. I posted the DDS information below and attached the attach file that I was required to do. Thank you to whoever can assist.

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.

I can bearly hear sound from my computer's speakers even with the main volume
set to maximum. I had a similar problem in Windows XP and fix it by
increasing the wave volume in the volume control. I can't find the wave
volume (just the main volume) in Windows 7 ultimate. Where is it?

If I can increase the wave volume,
then that will fix my problem.
Thank you. And yes, everything is plugged in
and powered up. Thank you.

A:Wave volume control...

the simple way is to click on the speaker icon next to the clock.

or control panel >> hardware and sound >> sound >> adjust system volume

depending on your sound card (or chip), you may have an extra set of controls somewhere in your start-menu.

do you know what sound card you have? and are you sure you have the latest drivers downloaded from the manufacturer. sometimes windows update can help find drivers.

My wave volume will automatically drop to zero every 25 seconds or so, although I don't think the intervals are fixed. I keep GOM player- my primary player- open so I can quickly reset the wave volume. This will usually be accompanied by the computer 'deselecting' out of whatever window I had active. For instance, I frequently am having to click the text box here to continue typing because it keeps deselecting. I will also get random audio ads for miscellaneous products with no window or way to close it. I will also get pop ups from ie even though I don't use ie at all.I will post the DDS now. I was not able to create an "ark.txt" file because every time I ran the GMER scan my computer would get a blue screen error a couple minutes into the scan (and yes I double checked that I had the correct boxes unchecked). I would appreciate any help you can give, this is driving me nuts! My technical knowledge of computers is lacking so please bear that in mind when responding. Thanks!DDS (Ver_10-03-17.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Eli at 22:08:25.29 on Wed 07/14/2010Internet Explorer: 6.0.2900.5512Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.1033.18.1014.282 [GMT -4:00]============== Running Processes ===============C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k DcomLaunchsvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcsC:\Program ...

Hey, I've been having problems with my computer lately and happened to stumble across this site where it seems I'm not the only one with this problem. So basically my wave volume keeps muting and it's getting very frustrating. As with the case with others, I keep getting random internet explorer popups even though I'm using firefox. Can this problem be fixed by simply reinstalling windows? If not, any help would be appreciated to help solve this problem. Just tell me what to do.

Thanks,

Chi

Hi,
I have been searching the internet for a solution to my problem. I have found nothing so far. Forums have told me to:
1. restart my computer
2. reinstall my audio drivers
3. update my audio drivers
4. replug in my keyboard and mouse
5. and restore windows to a week earlier

None of these solutions have worked for me. Everytime I turn on my computer my sounds works for a few minutes, then my wave slider goes down. When I put it back up it goes down in about 2min. I have realtek hd audio device.

Please help me. Thank you for your time.

Hello and an initial Thank You!

As of last night I noticed that my sound was not working. I checked all my cords, my drivers, etc. I noticed in my volume controls that the wave volume was at 0%. Turned it up and about 2 minutes later the sound went out, turned the volume up and same thing happened. I started researching today and found your web site. I have read a lot of the entries with the same problem and have also found that I have multiple IExplore.exe process running with no windows open. I am sorry to repeat a post on your forum about earlier issue but did not want to follow previous directions since I am not 100% sure of what I am doing. Thank you and here are my DDS and ATTACH reports.

After i fix the problem, every 5 minutes, the Wave Slider will be slided down again. Around that time, I noticed that i hear clicks, but i don't see anything. Also, i hear advertisements and sometimes get pop-ups from internet explorer. I looked in my task manager and i had iexplorer.exe either though i don't have internet explorer running.

Hi, I've been having problems with my sound and i found that my wave volume in the master volume controls have been muting on its own every few minutes and i would have to readjust it back to max. Also, i get these internet explorer popups coming up every so often and sometimes even random sounds (some sort of music or some commercial) playing even when the popups aren't there. On top of that, i hear these clicks while i'm on firefox (like those ones you hear when you're clicking a link on internet explorer). Also, my windows are being deselected on their own. I would be browsing on firefox and then it would turn grey and I'd have to click on it again to start using it again. This happens very frequently (2-3 minutes). I've been having this problem for about five to six days now and i'm not sure what to do. I've read around and some other people have the exact same problem that i have.I use windows xp and i use firefox as my browser. I found the same problem with one of the user here on the forum and I ran Combofix and it seems that the random sound is gone but my wave volume still mutes itself, the pop ups are still there and I can still hear the clicking sounds before the volume goes mute.I ran symantec Antivirus but nothing...

Hi Guys
I'm relatively green when it comes to computer tech stuff. So I'll keep it short and sweet. I have an ASUS EEE PC and recently my volume started muting by itself.

My computer speakers keep cutting out randomly. I have to go into volume control when it does. When I go into volume control, the wave knob is all the way down. It cuts real randomly. I also hear random noises in the background when I have no windows up. Some times I hear the smiley faces noise. You know, the smiley face emotes you see all the time on pop ups. While I type this I just got a pop up and never got one before. I also hear the mouse clicking noise but I'm not clicking anything. You know how if you have firefox up or any program and you click on the desktop. Once you click on the desktop, the firefox blue bar at the top with the minimize, maximize and X button goes gray, as if you clicked on a different program so its not the first program in front. That happens randomly too. Hopefully that made sense.I also tried running glary utilities, malwarebytes, and spybot.

The "wave" sound setting keeps muting itself every few minutes or so for no reason, and even if I drag it back up after a few minutes it just mutes itself again. Also, I will occasionally hear an ad (that sometimes isn't even in English) in the background of my computer, even if I don't have anything open! I'm not sure what's causing this, and I really don't want to do a system wipe. Please help!

The Wave volume keeps muting itself every minute or so. It's been happening for the past few days. I'm not sure when it exactly started. I tried a system restor but all the restore points were gone besides the one from the day before, so i restored it back to that day anyways and nothing changed. I have tried unplugging the interent connection and running antivirus programs in Safe mode without networking as well disabled safe mode before doing it so the virus cant reintroduce itself to the system through system restore. I've Ran Maleware Bytes, SuperAntiSpyware, and AVG 12 after doing this. Also lately I've been noticing a lot of windows updates that are prompted for updating. I've also used TddsKiller and HitmanPro while in normal Windows mode. I seen in another topid very similar to this one they said to d/l OTC and run that which I did(still to no prevail). I've also noticed when I run the Antivirus/Antimalware programs they are taking very long to run in safe mode. SAS took 7 hours, Malware Bytes took 5 hours, and AVG even took longer. I'm not sure what else to do. I use my computer for work and school and need the sound for many things, It's not only a distraction but it's putting a damper and time crunch on my work and school because of this problem. I would be very appreciative if someone would be willing to help fix this problem. I'm not what you would call a computer genius but I do know my way around a computer.

I am experiencing identical symptoms to this thread which has been resolved.

The only additional issue I am having is that I started receiving the BSOD in addition to the Wave Volume being turned down and the invisible pop up adds.(2 days after the first 2 symptoms began). Please let me know how I should proceed. Thank you for your help.

Please help. I am using a Dell PC with IE7 and Windows XP Home Edition w/SP3. Something has attacked my wave bar volume contol to go mute and at the same time my eset icon in the taskbar keeps spinning. When this happens the computer freezes and I have to hold the power button in to shut down. I tried Housecall, Malabytes Malaware, Spybot. When I run my ESET NOD32 -it reaches 94% and then a threat window pops up saying here is the list of threats but the window is empty and I can't get rid of it so I have to shut down again. Sytem Restore went through OK to my surprise but I still have the same problem. Is this the iexplore.exe or recycler virus? I know very little about computer programming so if you tell me to do something, please explain it physically, like click on this or that, as I might not understand the terminology. Or maybe I can clink on a link to a free download to get rid of it but I've heard of those downloads having viral files such as something called Combofix. Again, what virus does it soound like I have and what would be the easiest fix for me?. Thanks!

Do you still need help with this? If so, please do the following:

Please download DDS by sUBs to your desktop from the following location:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.scr

Double-click the dds.scr file to run the program.

It will automatically run in silent mode and then you will see the following note:

"Two logs shall be created n your Desktop".

The logs will be named dds.txt and attach.txt.

Wait until the logs appear and then copy and paste their contents in your post.
Please download GMER from: http://gmer.net/index.php

Click on the "Download EXE" button and save the randomly named .exe file to your desktop.

Note: You must uninstall any CD Emulation programs that you have before running GMER as they can cause conflicts and give false results.

Double click the GMER .exe file on your desktop to run the tool and it will automatically do a quick scan.

If the tool warns of rootkit activity and asks if you want to run a full scan, click on No and make sure the following are unchecked on the right-hand side:

IAT/EAT
Any drive letter other than the primary system drive (which is generally C).

Click the Scan button and when the scan is finished, click Save and save the log in Notepad with the name ark.txt to your desktop.

Note: It's important that all other windows be closed and that you don't touch the mouse or do anything with the computer during the scan as it may cause it to freeze. You should disable your screen ... Read more

To keep things simple I have recetly built my own HTPC and am using a HDA Digital Mystique 7.1 Gold soundcard for audio. When I use the windows remote to adjust the volume it only changes the volume of the master volume level and leaves the wave volume level unchanged. I know that my best bet is to simply change the volume on my AV Receiver and leave the Wave and Master volume at mid - max but when my girlfriend uses the HTPC she always uses the remotes volume control.

Having said that I would simply like the option of being able to change the volume of my HTPC via the MS remote instad of just the amp.

If more information is needed or if you would like a better explanation of what I am trying to acheive then please feel free to ask.

Regards, Matt.
 

A:Adjusting Wave and Master Volume

You said the remote can controll the master volume. So just turn everthing else up to full and then just use the remote, because the master volume will controll the whole volume.

Okay, I've been using Winamp with the same volume settings for months to play my MP3s - preamp at zero, Winamp volume at maximum, and PC volume at 2%.

A few hours ago I decided to play a MIDI file. The song played at a low volume and I increased my PC speakers to around 20% to be able to listen to it properly. I thought that was normal, since the MIDI file was of extremely low quality. However when I resumed playing my MP3 files, it played at the same volume as the MIDI file, and I could barely hear anything at 2%, which is what I want to keep my PC volume at. Any idea why this might have happened? I tried reinstalling it, but no change. Thanks

I posted this in the Winamp technical support forum, but my thread was barely looked at. Thanks for any help.

I should mention that the playback volume is fine with other media players, and I have to adjust my PC speaker volume to 60% on Winamp to reach the volume I used to get on 2%, prior to playing that MIDI file.

hi!

i will try to explain my problem the best i can:

every 3-5 minutes or so, the main window that i'm working in (doesn't matter which program im running, but usually firefox/msn messenger, etc..) stops being the "top" window, and instead goes to the background - as if i opened another internet explorer window on top of it.

this "glitch" is always followed by something even more strange - the sound gets cut off, and if i check the meters in volume control i always find the "wave" meter to be on minimum, and i have to put it back in the middle.

WHAT THE HELL???

can you please help?
