Because of missing native equalizer on OS-X (Snow Leopard) I had to use third party app Soundflower in combination with AU Lab. Everything was going right, but once I restarted OS X, the sound stopped working. When I changed the volume by the keys on Macbook I hear the system sound, but in iTunes, Vimeo, some videos on YouTube, Quicktime, etc., I hear nothing.

I tried to remove Soundflower and AU Lab and reboot, but without any change.

Does anybody know how to fix this problem?

When you say you tried to remove Soundflower but without any change, do you mean that Soundflower currently is or is not installed on your system? –  Daniel Lawson Sep 8 '12 at 15:31
Under System Preferences » Sound » Output, what device is currently selected for sound output? –  Daniel Lawson Sep 8 '12 at 15:32
Soundflower is not installed on my system. –  Jakub Haluška Sep 8 '12 at 15:32
Did you run the uninstallation script on the disk image or remove /System/Library/Extensions/Soundflower.kext? –  ؘؘؘ Sep 9 '12 at 13:01
Run the uninstallation script. –  Jakub Haluška Sep 10 '12 at 14:07

The only way I've found to fix this is to add new user accout and use it instead of the old one.
