My audio stopped working this morning out of the blue. I had recently updated Windows 10 to version 1803 and have read a couple of articles that say it's somehow related to it. But it was working yesterday and I did the update a week ago without having any problems whatsoever.
I know that it's complaining about the services, and my best bet is to look at the windows services.msc, so I found out that
Windows Audio was set to automatic but did not start. And whenever I try to start it, I get a
0x8007005: Access denied error.
Which then led me to another article and told me to go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wcncsvc and change the permission to
full grant. But I still am getting the access denied error anyways.
Is there a fix or am I forced to either downgrade, do a system restore, etc..?
