Volume Mixer does not retain settings for individual applications.

Original Title: <Sound settings aren't saving on application close>
After the latest patch Tuesday, I've noticed that sound settings aren't saving the way they used to.  Before, when I adjusted an individual sound for an application, and then closed the application, the sound was set to the same level when I restarted the application.  That is no longer happening.  Is there something I'm missing that I need to fix to get the sound settings to stick?

Previously, when I set the sound level for an application, it stayed after I quit the application, and restarted it.  Even through reboots.

But now, if I set a application's sound level to, say, 10, and later quit the application, when I restart it, it's back up at 100.

I want my sound settings to save again.



When you performed system restore, did everything work as expected?


I would suggest you to system restore to go back to before the updates were installed.

System Restore


Then if the problem isn’t present, then install the updates from Windows Update one at a time to try to identify which is causing this problem to occur.
