I thought I was going mad. Blaming my Startup + Services tweaks, for my lack of sound in YouTube.

Found ... All YouTube audio is muted. - Google Groups on your link to YouTube Audio Suddenly Missing

Its 7am here, I didn't sleep a wink last night dreading to day trying to figure out my lack of audio.
Normally I have all MS sounds disabled, but just now discovered the MS sounds are working ... but not YouTube.

Thank you for saving my sanity

Hi All I have been gone most of the day.
Glad you got your (YouTube) sound back.
GrayGhost2 use your computer for a few days and let us know how thing work. If things are to your liking it wouldn't hurt to make a backup.

To "all"

Thankfully YouTube problem was not me.

Reinstated the Services + Startup tweaks ... as per my post "#18

At first "VLC Player" did not recognise DVD movies NOR music CDs.
No amount of coaxing, settings, options ... was a fix

SOLUTION:-
Close all apps and files
Uninstall "VLC Player" with "Revouninstaller"
Reboot
Reinstall "VLC Player"
Control Panel > Auto Play
- applied settings as per this image ...

app windows not refreshing-autoplay-settings.png

Reboot (critical, must reboot)

So far I have not detected any problems.
Startup is probably 30% better, shut down is very quick. A vast improvement.

Refresh lag is 99% gone.

Thank you to all

ADDENDUM:
Just discovered "Classic Shell Start" menu (if you are using it) can also slow down PC startup.

Classic Shell FAQs:-
How do I improve the startup performance? ... and ... How do I make the start menu open faster?
