Check for Window's Audio

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-11-27
Is there a way that I can check to see if a user has muted Window's audio using code. I have a program that runs in the background that alerts the user if something happens, however, if they mute audio, the alert isn't hear. I'd like to monitor the audio (to see if it is muted), and reset the volume if the user sets it too low. Is there something I can do?
