    Windows 7 Build 7077

    Problem 1
    I don't know when but I have started to have some system sound problems. I first noticed the problem when I launched Play 65 Backgammon and although the game works OK no sound is heard during the game. Also email sound notification of custom sounds have also stopped working. The two email notification sounds are used in Mozilla Thunderbird and Mailwasher Pro and are .wav files. When I click on these files a Windows Media Player window opens and the file can be seen playing although no sound is heard. If I open the .wav's with Quick Time Player the sounds are heard. If I point to these .wav's in New Mail Notification in Control Panel \ Sounds and click 'Test' no sound is heard. MP3's play OK in Windows Media Player

    Problem 2

    The icon for Mozilla Thunderbird does not appear correctly on the Quick Launch area. When the program in launched the icon appears correctly. (see below)

    Thanks for any help in either problem

    I was hoping for a solution other than roll back as I have installed a lot of stuff and don't want to have to re-install.
