Totally not your fault!

Right click on "My Computer" Go to "Properties", Click on the Hardware tab, click on Device Manager. Right click on the little computer at the very top and select scan for hardware changes. Then try updating the "bad driver" by right-clicking and selecting "update". I have absolutely no idea if this has anything to do with anything other than your sound, but we're trying it anyway.

Ok, I'm at a loss here...

Go into Windows Explorer, then look in C:\Program Files to see if there is a folder in there for SpySweeper.

Personally, I re-install XP and see if you still have the problem. With all the stuff you had in your system, I'm thinking something in XP is corrupted. If the problem is gone then we'll see if anything else needs to be cleaned in your system before installing service pack 2. I'm not saying you need to do this as I know this is quite a bit of work with no guarantee that it will help... It's totally up to you.

When you put the CD in do you remember if it gave you the option to install>upgrade?

You would just want to do a repair install not a new install.
