How to turn off the self-adjusting volume slider?

Hey guys, I had this issue in Vista, and now that I upgraded to windows 7, this problem continues. My volume slider likes to adjust itself based on the volume of what is playing. This wouldn't bother me that much if it would always return to the default volume I set it at when it adjusts, but it doesn't. In fact, it usually ends up with the volume slowly getting lower until it hits 0, or slowly getting higher until it hits 100. With my headphones, I want the volume to stay at 50, but it never does. I can't for the life of me find any documentation about this feature online, or find a setting to turn this off. Maybe I have been looking for it in the wrong place, I don't know. But any help disabling this horrid feature would be wonderful. Thanks guys!

    Check to see if the driver from your audio chipset has a program running in the background. That might be the culprit.
    Wild guess: try this (even if you're not trying to make calls, set it to the "Do Nothing" option).
