  1. Place another application in the Startup group before the Voice Pilot icon. This will allow Windows enough time to initialize the Windows Sound System card before Voice Pilot tries to use the card.

    The icons placed in the Startup group load in the order they appear in the window. Therefore, Clock or any other application would have to be above and/or to the left of the Voice Pilot icon. -or-

  2. Turn the microphone off in Voice Pilot.
