Help with laptop microphone please.

    I have an Acer laptop.

    Recently, each time I use a Windows Media Player, the laptop's internal microphone switches itslef on.

    How can I stop it - or at least switch it off.

    (There was a big Windows update a few days ago - could this have caused it as it has only happened since that).


    Disable it in device manager.

    Yes, I can do that, but as I use skype quite a lot (and people skype me) I would hve to enable it every time I got a call, and by the time I'd done that....
