Finally I got the problem solved!!!!
The key is to install an older driver R2.22 for vista, which is the driver just before the win7 one came out.

It proves that the windows 7 driver doesn't "support" windows 7 lol

Ok heres a theory (bare with me)

Since windows 7 first came out, I have downloaded many driver updates and gradually the sound had gotten worse and worse.. however right before 2.32 came out I had just installed windows 7 rtm (night before). I wonder if realtek drivers are leaving old files behind and corrupting newer updates. only reason i say this is because 2.32 is working perfectly fine and i think if i had the rc still.. it would not. hope that makes sense. since the last 5 updates or so, my windows log on screen had been making ridiculous noises and now theres nothing but beautiful sounds

i still have the sound problem..
actually mine is not so serious, just some short (0.5 seconds) Crackle/popping happen randomly..not only while playing music in WMP..but also watching youtube video, system sound .etc..

after install and uninstall the Realtek driver (Audio and also NIC just in case it got conflict).. also reinstalled Windows 7 few times (tried x86 and x64..both got same problem).. still no perfect fixes for me..

the best driver for me now is R2.22 (which is the latest realtek HD Audio driver for Vista).. i found out 1 thg.. the driver is dx10.. now i'm thinking that dx11 is the cause of my problem.. realtek driver not really support dx11 completely i guess..

looking forward for future release.. hopefully can fix it..

It worked for me too! I also had the exact same problem (crack/pop/skip) with the new drivers for Windows 7!

Thanks a lot!!

Edit: Actually, that didn't solve my problem. The next day it got even worse. Then, for some reason, I tried disabling my firewall (Outpost) and it crashed my computer. I uninstalled it and everything is back to normal. That's why I had problems listening to music only while browsing. Anyway, I should have checked if Outpost was compatible with Windows 7 before upgrading Vista to 7...

Plagued by this problem, so far 2.21 has been best, it isn't perfect, get a 'pop' every now and then.
Getting fed up with it tbh, will more than likely buy a sound card.
