No playback, no synthesiser, no mixer

I have nowhere else to go, this is ridiculous.
One day, I open musescore and the playback functions decides not to work. So I close and reopen a few times- nothing, bearing in mind this was working an 20 minutes ago and essentially nothing changed.
So I found this forum: and nothing on this worked.
While I was troubleshooting, I discovered I had no synthesiser option or volume mixer anymore. So I decided to give up and factory reset. Needless to say it didn't work, and nothing changed.
I then looked and saw no Soundfont in the musescore file and I thought maybe I lost it. Alas, downloading it didn't make a difference, I still have no synthesiser or mixer.
So I uninstalled and reinstalled, deleted as much as I could hoping that a 'hard' reset would work. And I'm now here because nothing changed and I don't know what else to do.

Actually, we'd really like to know what was triggering this for you, as a number of other users report similar issues. We're pretty sure that any time this happens it is a bad interaction with some other program or device driver, but we'd like to know which ones specifically people should be on the lookout for.
