I updated my windows last night before shutting down. Today when i opened my AOL and switched on the AOL radio i got this " Bad directsound driver.Please install proper drivers or select another device in configuration.error code 88780078". Then I tried to play songs from my CD and harddrive using musicmatch which says "waveout format not supported". same problem with WMP as well. please help me.

The update may have included a sound driver which is causing software conflict, try rolling back drivers for your soundcard/device..
