Volume Problem in User Acct Only

    who Flightless Bird

    Win XP Pro + SP3 + updates
    WMP 11.0.5721.5268
    1 admin acct, several limited user accts

    I have a purchased audio CD that produces no volume in a user acct but plays
    correctly (with volume) in the admin acct.

    In the user acct I have checked all the volume controls, have run MS's
    troubleshooter utility, etc. No control that I can find is muted.

    In this user acct I can hear system alerts. Furthermore, with IE8 I can go
    to websites and play and hear videos.

    What can be blocking volume from a purchased audio CD that plays correctly
    in the admin acct?

    Isn't there anyone that knows the details about volume control in XP?

    A shot in the dark!

    Cannot play protected files:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/9series/playererrors.aspx

    "To play protected files on your computer, you "cannot" use a Windows user
    account that is a member of both the Administrators group and the Guests
    group."

    "To resolve the problem, remove your user account from the Guests group."

    Good luck,

    Donald Anadell
