    I can't figure out how to fix this. I noticed that, when I'm watching a video, my headset's mic will relay the audio coming into my headset. Disabling Stereo Mix doesn't fix it. The physical controller that's on my headset cable doesn't stop it from happening, as even if I turn the volume knob all the way down and flick the mute switch, it's still picking up the audio. Muting my headset from within the computer stops the mic from hearing it, as does switching to my speakers that are plugged into the front jack. My headset is a 3.5mm jack type plugged into the back of the computer, directly into the motherboard.

    What hardware are you using? Do you have any third party audio software involved? There is other software which can function similar to Stereo Mix as well as some communication/chat apps.

    First and foremost, it's very likely not the mic "relaying" the headset audio. As with Stereo Mix (or What you Hear for Creative users), audio sharing is usually done via software. Some third party voice chat applications have the ability to share computer audio.

    You could try performing a Clean Boot, that will stop all software from running at startup. If it then works normally, you will know it is an issue with software that you have installed.
