comment What happened to Skype's wav files?
Thanks for your answer. Reinstalling sorted the problem out, but as Eliah suggested that first, I've accepted their answer. If there was a way to share the credit, I would, but alas there isn't. Thanks for answering though, much appreciated.

I removed and reinstalled Skype and all is well now. I tried downgrading but it just broke skype entirely. Perhaps this is destined to forever remain a mystery ...

I'm happy to reinstall (and would hope that would sort it out) but I'm also quite curious to try to figure out why they've suddenly vanished. It sounds like that's not likely to be something I can work out though.

comment Why does my computer keep freezing?
@nickguletskii: Thanks for the link. I've subscribed to the bug and will try and add to the information there when it crashes again. Given that it appears to be a compiz issue, or at least compiz related, I'll try disabling compiz to see if that makes any difference.

It's a vanilla Dell XPS 8300 - details at dell.com/uk/p/xps-8300 - except for the graphics card, which is an ATI Radeon X1300 Pro.

I think you're in the wrong place ... you need the "Ask Windows" community :)
