Prevent auto volume adjustment during sound capture and broadcasting.

Hello!
My sound card is Creative Audio PCI 128.
When I use WM Encoder 9 or any other program to capture audio, the volume
(recording) is automatically raised and causes sound distortion. Volume
Control slider is not moved automatically, but the volume is changed.
This will occur in the following situations:
Start Capture / Broadcast
Open the live stream with Media Player or Media Player web control.

This problem occurs on both of my XP pro and 2k3 Server installations.
This problem does not occur on Windows 95.

Apparently there is some part of Windows that thinks
"I am adjusting the microphone volume"
but it is adjusting the Line In.

How can I find / stop / remove this stupid code that is causing the
distortion? I don't want any "smart" software that acts stupid and causes
problems.

Note: If I open the Recording Control (Capture), then change the volume and
change it back, it will restore to normal operation with no distortion. Bust
should I do this every time???
