Missing Sound Scheme(s)

I suddenly found my Windows Sound has no sound scheme.

Things were fine after I installed the OS and the only change I made since then was switch back and forth between a couple of windows schemes that came with the OS.

The entire list is blank under sound and when I try to add a sound scheme the list is a blank not even windows default.

Hello BeepBeep,

The default location for the default Windows 7 sounds are at C:\Windows\Media. It may have been changed by mistake.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks.

That was not the problem; a registry entry had been deleted. Ran upgrade and it got fixed.
