  1. Taskhostw is repeating the same functions every second and playing a sound


    To start off, I have completed the following steps:

    -Dism check and restore

    - sfc

    - Restoro system check

    - Virus scan


    Taskhostw continuously runs a create, query, close sequence every 1-2 seconds and plays Windows Background.wav every second. Yes, very annoying.


    This ONLY happens when a certain program is open - Trader Workstation stock trading platform.


    The sounds are not coming from the application or any setting I have in the program.


    For some reason, the taskhostw command starts ONLY when the trading program is open. It stops as soon as I close the program. This is verified by Process monitor.

    As a troubleshooting step, I temporarily renamed taskhostw in the system32 folder. The Trading program opened and worked fine no looping sound. I changed the name back.


    I know taskhostw can sometimes be compromised, but everything indicates this is not the case.

  2. No sound while playing audio and video files.

    Hi,

    I appreciate if you could answer to a few questions to narrow down to the issue.

    • Which is the application that you are using to play the files?
    • Did you try the same on a different player?
    • Did you perform any troubleshooting steps?
    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to check if the volume is set low or in mute state in Volume Mixer.

    • Right click on sound icon.
    • Open Volume Mixer check for the application that you are playing the files with and increase the volume and check.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to run “Playing audio” troubleshooter to diagnose and fix the issue.

    Follow these Steps to run Playing Audio Troubleshooter in Windows 10.

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Playing audio.

    Windows sound not playing after recent Win10 Update

    Hi all,

    Symptom:
    Since last windows update, windows doesn't play the windows sounds: Startup, UAC sound, exclamation, warning, notifications, etc.

    Note: Other sounds, like games, videos, calls are working well.

    I use SoundBlaster Z series sound card. Their recent driver update release notes lists that the driver is fixing this issue.

    Actions taken:
    Removed the driver completely
    rebooted
    Reinstalled the driver

    Results:
    After initial boot and subsequent restarts, the windows sounds play well.
    After a computer shutdown and startup - the above symptom is introduced again, i.e., windows sounds don't play anymore.

    I've repeated the steps above and ended up with the same problem.

    Can anyone please assist?


    Win10 Pro
    Version 1909
    OS Build 18363.657

    Thanks.
