    Another problem is that some rootkit-like thing keeps working in the backgroung and conflicts during shutdown.
    Even eset smart security is not identifying the problem

    If i was you i would install Avast 5 and run a boot time virus scan to find the offending issue. Mayber then you can begin to get to the bottom of your problem.

    I'd uninstall the soundcard drivers and reinstall them. I think maybe you have a bad driver which takes control of your volume and also possibly causes problems at shutdown.

    Just a stab in the dark, but this would be my first step.


    Edit: an afterthought: have you set your sound card to "do nothing" when you receive a call? Windows can automatically reduce your volume when it detects a call.
