I just installed an Asus Xonar DS hoping it'd fix a problem i have with ventrilo, TS3, mumble, etc. (which it didn't)
But now when i try to start up certain processes such as google chrome or itunes, they simple won't come up. But they will show up in my lists of processes in the task manager. I can't even install the updates for the sound card because my PC simply won't let me. It's never done this before until i installed the sound card.
