windows10 Volume Control resets

Recommended Posts

That's unusual, but I do have an idea about what might be causing it.

What are you using to control the volumes setting?

If it's a third party application (maybe one that came with the computer) rather than Windows own controls, then it is possible that it is saving the setting in a file somewhere that CC is removing.

Try clicking on the speaker icon in the system tray (bottom left of your screen) and setting the volume there instead.

Many computer manufactures 'bundle' this kind of software onto the computer before you buy it, if you can tell us what make your computer is we may be able to say more.
Or have a read of this: https://www.shouldiremoveit.com/oems-bloatware.aspx
(When I got this laptop there was a load of Asus 'bundleware' on it that overrode the normal Windows controls for volume, brightness, etc.).
If you want to remove all that stuff then ADWcleaner from Malwarebytes will now remove it - use with care you may not want to remove it all, some people do find some of it useful.

If you are using something other than the Windows controls and want to keep using it then we may have to do some more digging to solve the issue.

Just to make sure - this is happening with normal cleaning? You are not running the registry cleaner are you?

AFAIK the default CCleaner should leave the Windows sound mixer alone.

Are you using winapp2 ? (or any other CCleaner extension?)
Winapp2 has settings that could cause the volume level to be reset to 100%

This is from 2012 and is about Win7 not Win 10 but shows what I mean:
