i'm running windows xp pro. i downloaded the xp live! platinum update and it works okay generally, but when i try to access the "speaker" option from audio hq, i get an error message from windows, the one that asks you to report the error or not. the only way i can change the speaker setup is through control panel, and i have to do this every time i turn on my computer. on a possibly related note, if i try to run unreal tournament or deus ex more than once (ie i exit deus ex, then run it again), all sound effects (not music) become distorted. the first time i run it after turning my comp on everything is fine. can anybody help me?
