Windows 7: sound dips in and out whenever it feels

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
sound dips in and out whenever it feels

I am having a problem with my application's sound being dimmed down to almost nothing and left there after either plugging in a flash drive, or sometimes for reasons unknown. See the attached picture for what I mean. This screen was taken right after I plugged in my flash drive. I'm thinking it does this every time that windows makes a "babump" sound, but that's just my guess.

What do I need to stop it from manipulating my volumes whenever it pleases? This is getting old, going into my volume mixer to fix it every time.


-also note that the original volumes look ghosted

I couldn't seem to find a way to fix it, so I reinstalled my audio drivers, and I no longer seem to have this problem. Hopefully it doesn't come back.

Sound Dips.
