Your install may have disabled your soundfor ome reason. Cick "start", then on "contrl panel" Fnd and right click on "device manager", open an click on continue. Click on the box(on right) of "sound audio and game controllers". Do you see a warning, ?, !, or yellow triangle?. If so click on that an follow proceedure. Your device(s) should show in drop down. It's possible that your install requires enabling of a device previously not there before or that was disabled because it wasn't needed. Right click on each device one at a time and you should see "disable". If you see "enable" click on that and exit. Check each device. If you are using on board sound you can try update by windows by right clicking on device then on properties. You should see "this device is working properly".
Click on the "driver" tab and click on "automatically search for updates...". When finished, exit. You should have a speaker icon in your taskbar, lower right of screen. Right click on it and click on "open sound mixer" and adjust your volume.

Is it compatible? 32 or 64bit? Download the program to a folder and modify the compatibility, if you haven't already. It states it's compatible with Win 8. Here's a compatibility procedure :

Expat sheild will not install due to compatibility issues

Did you uninstall with a program like Revo uninstaller? That program finds files that are often left behind with a routine uninstall.

Internet keeps disconnecting once expat shield is up, why?

That's because Expat Shield is loaded with pop-under ads and other pieces of junkware and malware that kill your internet connection or bring it to a crippled crawl.

I moved apartment and now expat shield is unable to connect, any suggestions?

Sounds weird. Is your internet line working ok otherwise? The fact you moved apartment shouldn't make any difference to Expat Shield. Two possibilites - their server is/was down, which is not unlikely. Secondly, did you kill the page it jumps to when it connects? Let that load properly first then kill after. I usually have my TV page up ready to go, connect Expat, let it open what it wants then kill it and refresh tv page.
They may even have updated something and you might need to install a newer version to connect. It has happened before.
Most likely server trouble, which then sometimes leads to necessity for new install. Probably purely just a coincidence with your change of apartment :-)
