  22. Hi, thanks for posting a solution which I know works but not for this one, I knew before I came here that the culprit was sound. First it was the (0x000005). application error, sound control panel and troubleshooting wasn't working, now its the -107 error it's saying there is no program to open the personalization menu, command prompt admin not working, browsers not opening, no sound, Can u assist?
