I inadvertently (OK, stupidly) double clicked an icon in the Windows folder titled "alcrmv" - a blue spider, which appears to be a tool for removing drivers. I've now lost all sound. Any ideas out there how to restore? I'm on Windows XP
Did you try to reinstall the sound driver?
Right click My Computer> properties> Hardware tab> then Device Manager> click the + at Sound video and game controllers
right click your Audio Controller and select properties>
Drivers tab> update driver
