    Hi Vitavita and welcome to TenForums.

    Try creating a new user account (administrative). See if you can run any *.exe files from the new account.

    If that doesn't work, have a read of this thread. There are some people with similar problems, and some possible solutions. See especially posts #5 & 12, but I would try creating a new user account first.

    Thanks for the warm welcome.
    Despite your recommendation, I changed the soundscheme to standard first and it worked!
    Thus far I haven't ran into other problems. Thank you very much!
