We are having a strange issue so I will need all of your expertise.
Several days ago I posted a message on EE about a problem we were experiencing with missing audio at numerous PCs in our network.
You can read the post at this link:
We figured out that the reason for the lost audio is the Windows Audio service, which was STOPPED and set to MANUAL startup (instead of automatic).
Starting the service and setting it back to automatic helped us fix the problem but we still do not know what is causing it to stop.
Some users are compaining that the problem reappears after restart.
Others noticed that along with the AUDIO service, windows' THEMES service was disabled too. We applied the same strategy to fix the Themes service.
Our search for the possible cause so far did not return any reasonable explanation.
If some of you has had similar experience or an insight on this mystery please share it with the forum.
Any help would be much appreciated.
