VirtualBox installation causes sound issues on Windows 7 x64 host

Reported by: Alex Chekunkov Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network/hostif
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.8 Keywords: Windows 7 x64, Bridged Networking, audio, installation
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Windows


Sound on Windows 7 x64 host became intermittent and distorted after VirtualBox installation. Deinstallation restores the sound quality. I found that Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.1.8 driver for Bridged Networking causes the issue, because its removal from installation list helps to avoid the problem.


OS: Windows 7 x64 Professional

Notebook: Asus U31SD

Processor: Intel Core i3-2310M

RAM: 8 Gb

Soundcard: Realtek High Definition Audio

Network adapters: Atheros AR8151 and Atheros AR9002WB-1NG

All drivers are up to date.
