Windows 7: Headphone Issues

Windows 7
Headphone Issues

Hi all

I recently got Win 7 and I couldn't open a divx file so I thought I should get the divx codec( a decision which I now regret). I installed it and my audio just messed up.
I deleted it, but the problem remained. I tried installing new codecs but still no change.
I did a system restore but still nothing.
The problem is about my headphones (the speakers work fine). My audio is muffled and sounds distant on anything I play. And if I play songs the vocals seem muffled and scratchy to the point at which I can barely hear them. I didn't find any changes in the 2nd Audio Output properties (Realtek, which I reinstalled with no apparent change). So is it something in the settings or something codec/driver related and how can I fix it??

Perhaps reinstalling the audio driver would fix things.
