Microphone too sensitive?

    I have a Skype compatible SE-P4K Speaker Phone (
    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo...roductID=245125 )and I'm having
    a problem with microphone over-sensitivity.

    When I speak my voice is being distorted. Dragging back the microphone
    slider in SkypeMate does not seem to help, and in fact I cannot keep the
    slider from moving to the maximum as when I begin to talk the slider moves
    slowly up to the maximum setting by itself! Has anyone experienced similar
    problems with this or other Skype phones, and if so, what was your solution?

    I've already been advised to check the advanced properties for 20db boost on
    the audio settings (right-click loudspeaker icon, options, check 'advanced
    properties', then click on the advanced properties button) however the 20db
    option isn't there.

    In the Skype window, click on TOOLS, OPTIONS, SOUND DEVICES and
    untick the box "Let Skype adjust my sound device settings", click on SAVE.
