Windows 7: Stuttering sound + Sound mixer "System Settings" flashing in and out

Stuttering sound + Sound mixer "System Settings" flashing in and out

This is a weird issue I'm having. I did a restart and when I came back BF3 wasnt playing any sounds, which is weird because it was just working.

I went to make sure it wasnt muted in the mixer, and I see the weirdest thing.

The application "System Sound" is disapearing in and out very quickly, not only in the mixer but In devices as well

What can I do to fix it? Maybe reinstall w7 sound drivers?

Sorry should have mentioned, I'm using sound from the motherboard, but have noting plugged into it. My headset is a Gamecome 780 which runs via USB

Also when I try doing something such as Properties or disabling on the Sound screen from control panel it crashes saying: Windows Shell Common DL has stopped working

Have you installed anything recently, also have you tried system restore?

Everything has been installed properly, and I had just done a system restore a bit back. Are there some other things I can try before doing a restore?
