Default Microphone/Windows Problem


I use XP home and have been using an audigy 2 zs sound card for a fair while.
I use a mic that has been working fine until I decided to update my drivers on the Soundcard.
I created a restore point beforehand as you shoudl and downloaded and installed the drivers. After that I found my mic didn't work so i thought i would go and calibrate it again. When i clicked on the speeech Icon in control panel, I found that the Icon to calibrate the mic had dissapeared competely.
I thought it was a bit odd, so I went back to my previous retore point. Its is still not there, even though the micis now permanently switched on?????????????
I have to disable it from Volume control if I want to switch off.

Does anyone have the faintest idea what is going on, I'm bloody confused?

Many thanks for any help you could give.

Rollback the drivers in the Device Manager.
