. I might try reinstalling the soundcard drivers first.
Generally, you want to avoid doing 2 things at once. Maybe, enable EAX and hardware sound with all the programs off and see if the problem is still gone. If it is, dont reinstall sound drivers... the less you do, the less complicated thnigs will get.
I wouldnt mess with the drivers yet. Narrow it down first by enabling things. If its sound related, then reinstall sound drivers.
Might want to try enabling the virus scanner first to see if that brings the problem back... right now thats what id say it was.
Anyway, im glad my advice helped this much... if the problem still persists when you disable all running programs, then you usually have a lot of work ahead of you
