Question Info

What brand/model computer do you have?   What is the type/model of your audio card/chipset?

I recommend that you get Microsoft OS patches only from the Windows Update tool in XP:

  1. Start
  2. Control Panel 
  3. Look in the See Also Group
  4. Click Windows Update
If you get OS Patches from anywhere other than: 
  1. The MS Windows XP Update Site
  2. Your Computer Manufacturer Website
  3. or
  4. Your peripheral card Website(s)
you run an unacceptable risk of getting malware.  As far as I know, Microsoft puts all of its drivers on the "Windows Update" site which should be accessible from Control Panel.
