Windows 7: Popping sound on Audio recordings

Popping sound on Audio recordings

Hi all

I just bought a new Windows 7 prof PC, dual core 2.8GHz, 2Gb RAM. When I plug my Guitar's multi-effects pedal into the sound port the sound is clear when I play the guitar through the PC and when I record. But when I play back the recording there's a popping sound that ruins the recording. I used to record in this same way on my previous Windows XP PC and had no such problem, the recordings were clean. I reinstalled Windows, reloaded the sound card drivers but problem persists.

Any help would be appreciated!

Are all of your connections clean? What recording software are you using?
