How to Restore Sound Recorder


The Sound Recorder application that comes preinstalled with Windows operating systems is categorized as a Windows system file. By default it's stored in the C:\Windows\system32 folder. Because it is considered a system file, the easiest way to restore it if it's accidentally deleted, or begins to malfunction, is to use the System Restore utility to reset all of the Windows system files and settings back to a date when the program was working. If you'd like to use a more targeted approach to restore this application, you could also try uninstalling and reinstalling the application.

Instructions

Performing System Restore in Windows 7

1

Log in to Windows using an administrator account.

2

Open the "Start" menu. Type "System Restore" in the search box. Press "Enter" to launch the System Restore wizard.

3

Click "Next" at the initial "Restore system and file settings" prompt.

4

Review the list of restore points offered in the "Restore your computer to the way it was before the selected event" prompt. Click on the most recent restore point that is dated during a period when the Sound Recorder application was working properly. If you don't see any restore points that fit this criteria in the current list of restore points, put a checkmark in the box next to "Show more restore points." Click "Next" after you have selected a restore point.

5

Click "Finished."

Performing System Restore in Windows XP

Click "Start." Select "Run." Enter "%SystemRoot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe" in the "Open" box. Click "OK" to launch the System Restore wizard.

8

Select "Create a restore point" at the initial "Welcome" prompt. Click "Next."

9

Click on the most recent bolded date in the calendar that falls within the period when the Sound Recorder application was working properly. If this date does not reside in the current month, click the calendar's back arrow to view the previous month.

Highlight one of the restore points listed in the right-side box. Click "Next." Click "Next" again to confirm.

Using Add/Remove Program Utility in Windows XP

11

Click "Start," select "Run," type "Explorer" in the box and click "OK" to launch Windows Explorer. Copy and paste the following directory in the Address box: C:\WINDOWS\inf\sysoc.inf. The "sysoc.inf" file will open in Notepad.

12

Scroll down the page until you find the line that reads, "MultiM=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,multimed.inf,HIDE,7." Remove the word "HIDE" from the line (but be sure to leave the two commas in place). In the end the line should read, "MultiM=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,multimed.inf,,7." Hold down the "Ctrl" key and press "S" to save the file. Close Notepad. Close Windows Explorer.

13

Click "Start," select "Control Panel" and double-click the "Add/Remove Programs" icon.

Go back to the "Multimedia" detail window. Place a checkmark in the box next to "Sound Recorder." Click "OK" to reinstall it.
