No In-game sounds At All, since Last Patch

I submitted a ticket on this already, but want to know if anyone else is experiencing this.

When i load the game, the normal sounds are played as it goes thru the bouncing dice, to Bathesda, Zenimax , Havok... all that animation has the normal sounds, but when i get the the login screen, there is no music, when there has always been game music before. Ditto for the character launch screen, no music.

I did try playing one of the Cinematic scenes, and the one with the Profit introducing the story background has normal sound. But the character screen - no sound. Launching a character into the game, no sound. No ambient sound, no music, no voice overs, no sound for casting spells, etc... NO SOUND in game at all. Just for kicks i clicked the default button under the sound options in "Settings."

I opened my sound icon on the task bar, and clicked Mixer, and the slider for Elder Scrolls Online is fine. I restarted the game. During the intro for loading the game I can see the bouncing green indicator corresponding to the sounds, same for the cinematic scenes. There is no sound after getting to the login screen, nor in the game after logging in a character.

This started yesterday, and I've since relogged, and restarted my computer. all other sound devices work, mumbble, windows media player, etc...

I'm going to try a "repair" from the launcher.

    I also made sure all my addons were off, but still no sound.

    Okay, it took four hours to repair. the repair process crashed three times, said the target file was corrupted, and one time it crashed my computer to the blue screen of death. but finally finished and the sound is now back.

    I guess I'll try that too - just hope I don't need to download 4 gig again, since we pay for bandwidth here Q.Q
    - Thanks for posting, at least I know it's not just me!
