Windows 7: skipping first 2 seconds in program/ system audio

windows 7 ultimate 32 bit
skipping first 2 seconds in program/ system audio

ultimate is installed on my machine. everything was working perfectly including mics, speakers and rosetta stone software. then i went through the windows 7 vr training and setup and now my audio files are skipping the 1st 0.1 -2 seconds. it happens in speech recognition software. rosetta stone randomly now cuts of the beginning of every word/ phrase and the default tts message "you have selected microsoft anna (or other) as the computers default voice" skips the 1st couple of words. last time this happened i went for a full reinstall - and there is so much software on thr pc it took literally days to complete. in order to avoid that step again i would hope there is a work around for this problem. i have tried several restore function but its not fixing the problem. uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers - the problem remains. Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated.

It seems that the windows 7 VR setup has corrupted or intentionally added this 2 second pause perhaps to prevent cross over interference between the mic and speakers. Any ideas on reversing this setting? The media player in the background is a type of work-around but is hardly ideal...

Hey basically I have this problem with the sound having a slight skip / crack every 5 seconds or so. This is happening in games, music playing software and online videos. I'll admit that it's only a very slight thing, but I find it to be very annoying. I tried using DPC Latency Checker and it...
