Microphone feedback problem

I recently ran into a feedback issue where my microphone was feeding back into the speakers. After a little troubleshooting I learned that muting the microphone fixed the issue which was to be expected.

Quite by chance I discovered that even with the microphone muted in the advanced sound properties on my computer the microphone on my headset still worked. So I have come to the conclusion that somehow a second microphone driver got installed on the computer and when I mute it the issue goes away.
