    Microphone Levels Reset to 100 when I launch EXE programs.

    What's wrong: I recently purchased a Samson Meteor Microphone and was thoroughly enjoying it. However recently an incessant problem has occurred where whenever I launch any exe file, IE: steam games, leauge of legends after champ select, anything that basically takes me into to full screen. I've tried a lot of things. I've made sure applications do not have control over my microphone, I've uninstalled my drivers multiple times which temporarily fixed it, but then the problem came back. I've also uninstalled VIA HD Audio dec along with uninstalling/reinstalled Realtek audio drivers which again temporarily fixed it, but the problem came back.
    I just really want some help here as I'm at a loss in what to do. Usually I can fix this stuff on my own but I'm just not sure what to do anymore.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    Also I've attached a DxDiag if that will help anyone help me.

    First, this is a USB microphone and not directly connected to the PC audio (VIA in your case).
    However, do you have "Stereo Mix" set as the default recording device? With Stereo Mix set as default, any audio input can be used. If its set to something else the input can get disabled. Check the Recording Device.
