Windows 7: Sound Resets to Zero

Sound Resets to Zero

This started about 3 days ago. Every time I restart or do a cold boot, the sound resets the volume to zero (0). Everything looks fine in the device manager.

I can move the slider up and then I have sound.

BTW I have onboard sound.

I am just wondering what could have caused this to start happening and how to correct it.

Thanks for any info

Problem solved. I ran Malwarebytes and it found a couple worms. After removing those the PC is performing normally.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate and this happens when I'm playing, World of Warcraft mainly. I recently solved a problem where the game would close down or I'd get a BSOD and I thought it was all over. It was fine for about 2 days now it's just randomly resetting on me.. Any advice?
