A few months ago I upgraded to windows 10 and it went surprisingly well.  After a month or so my microphone started auto adjusting when opening games to 11. It happens on 75% of the games I have. I am by no means a pro at computers but I know my way around.  I have done everything you can find on the first 5 pages of a google search for mic auto adjusting.  For the life of me I can not figure out why this keeps happening.  I can literally watch my microphone volume go from 100 to 11 as a game loads up. I'm at a complete loss and am ready to buy a new sound card just to see if this will go away.



-Happens with or without microphone boost.

-I have all other recording devices disabled. 
-I have "Allow applications to take exclusive control" off.  
-In the communications tab I have it set to do nothing.  
-It stays at 100 when opening vent/discord/teamspeak.
-I'm using a detachable mic from a creative fatality headset using a female to male 3.5mm adapter into my asus xonar dg.
-I reinstalled audio drivers several times.
