Mike, thanks for comeback.
Read your directions in others posts first. Have tried the remove AC-Link in
Safe Mode and reboot and reinstall audio drivers and the results were the
same. Even used a fresh download of the drivers from GW, in case mine were
currupted. Should have mentioned that sooner.
My ME install would probably be called bare. Had a problem with Norton's
last year and had to do a clean reinstall. Luckily had moved all important
things to the new computer. Didn't put anything on unless I needed it to
connect to the Internet or keep the computer running. So no Office, Outlook,
voice recognition, or any of that stuff.
Will try Google. If I find an answer, will post.
