Windows 7: Items keep disappearing

Items keep disappearing

Recently I wanted to check my sound devices, but then my devices on the list just disappeared, they work just not appear. They appear for like a second then they're not there anymore.

Same thing with the task manager, I opened it and my opened programs on the list kept disappearing, 1 displays, then 2 then none and so on.

This is bothering me a lot, please help me!

Please help me ASAP!

i believe you have a glitch(s) with those audio device(s). Try going into control panel; then to system; then to device manager and see if they are listed in device manager. If they are; uninstall them, reboot and let windows hopefully re-detect them and install the drivers for them. If any of them have discs that came with them you may need those for the actual drivers. Post back and let us know what happens.

They are all there.
The devices work, just when I want to configure them (pictures from actual post) they keep disappearing, which is very bothering.

Pinned Taskbar Items Disappearing when Program Opens
Hello, I hope you are doing well. When I open a program that has been pinned to the taskbar, the icon for that program disappears immediately. I understand that this is a feature of Windows 7, but my girlfriend finds it rather annoying. Is there any way to stop this behavior? By the way, I am...

Start Menu Items keep disappearing.
My start menu items keep disappearing, I have done the trick where you move the icons into a folder and then move them back but that isn't a permanent fix as they keep disappearing at random again and again, is there any more permanent fix yet???
