Stupid of me. It was late at night. I am running the following:
  • Windows 7
  • SoundBlaster X-FI Card
  • Logitech Z-5 USB Speakers
Anything I am missing?

Thanks.

Updated in UserCP too.

I uninstalled Logitech program and Sound in Control Panel worked. I use my Logitech QuickCam, so I will check with Logitech before I reinstall the program.
