Windows 7: mic: alyways "unmutes" after reboot

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
mic: alyways "unmutes" after reboot

Hello all

One "small" issue but very annoying ...

I usually mute the microphone from the windows sound mixer (from the taskbar) because it interferes with the speakers and creates .. the microphony effect.

The problem is that the microphone is "unmuted" after each reboot !
So if the speakers volume is quite high i get that annoying noise quite loud ..

Anyone had that problem before and found a way to fix it ?

Thanks !

No system specs listed so we can comment directly on your PC, but check the setup for your sound, in the Control Panel/Sound Panel and see if there is any way to have it default to mute.

I have a SoundBlaster Xfi sound card and there are no options default to the mic muted.
