Since you do hear sounds, your listening device is set right on your computer.  I will assume you have checked to be sure that the right settings are being used for the speaker/headphone/headset which you use to listen to music.  If not do that first under Preferences>Sound and Media>Voice>Audio Device Settings

Music streaming is built into your viewer.  It's possible that if you deleted a lot of things from your computer, you may haven deleted or corrupted some of the files connected to your viewer.

The easiest way to fix this, if this is the problem, is to do a clean reinstall of your viewer. Here is how to do that https://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/How-to-uninstall-and-reinstall-Second-Life/ta-p/1375231

The link provided is for the official SL viewer, but also works for third party viewers. You viewer name will be substituted for the SL viewer name.

Can you hear streaming music from other sources?  For example, open a web browser and browse to any service that provides streaming radio, such as iHeart Radio, Spotify, Amazon Music, or Shoutcast.  If you can hear their offerings, your PC is set up to receive streams.  In this case, a clean reinstall of your Second Life viewer will probably fix the problem.

In your viewer, you can either choose for music (and video media, if you like) to automatically play, or you may choose to manually click on the music note icon or the movie camera icon in the upper right corner of your viewer.  (This is my personal preference, since I only listen to music when I'm at a club.)  You set this up in your Preferences, in the Sound and Media tab.

If you can't get ANY streaming media, you did delete something important in your computer.  A repair of Windows is indicated.
