Mixer.exe taking up CPU

    Hi, having a problem occasionally with the mixer.exe file. After a while on
    the computer (not sure what triggers it) the mixer.exe process starts taking
    50% of the CPU and continues to do so until reboot. I've tried ending the
    process, but this just transfers the 50% to another process and hogs the
    resources and so on.. A few times it picks other processes and does this
    too..
    The mixer.exe file is from realtek AC97 drivers and ive removed and
    reinstalled the latest drivers.
    Any ideas? Any tips appreciated

    That's NORMAL, don't listen to the trolls who are trying to convince you
    that you have a problem.
