Win 7 64 Sound Glitches
I've been using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit for a while now. Recently I've been getting terrible sound glitches. I'm pretty sure it hasn't been there since I installed Win 7. The only thing I can think of that I've done recently that's related to sound is running the setup for Windows Media Player (I had been using VLC Media Player and iTunes previously).
The glitches vary in frequency, intensity and type. When there is no sound playing there are no glitches. The glitches consist of pops, crackles, and what sounds like the sound getting caught in some kind of very fast loop for a second, which sounds like a buzzsaw 'bzzzzt!'
Sometimes I can watch a movie or TV episode and barely notice them, other times it's almost unwatchable. The glitches occur with all sound, so far as I can tell - WMP, VLC, iTunes, Youtube, games etc. It happens whether I'm using speakers or headphones. It also happens from both audio jacks (I have one on the front and one on the back of the case).
I've trued updating my sound drivers and unplugging all USB devices (I heard Win 7 64 has some USB issues?). I'm using onboard sound on my ABIT IP35 Pro motherboard.
Any ideas how to fix this?
