Windows Microphone Woes

At some point, my microphone stopped working.  I have tried a different one.  I have checked out the settings in the control panel (Multimedia/Playback/Recording, etc. etc.).  In fact, everything worked just fine... minutes before it stopped.  Does anyone have any ideas?  I did run some silly Karaoke program before it all stopped working.  Should I buy a new microphone or is there anything at all that can account for this?

Have you tried uninstalling the karaoke program?  (Check in add/remove programs. )  For a fast fix, try reinstalling win98.

Thanks for the response.  Actually I managed to solve the problem on my own; it seemed that some program changed the audio settings to Auxiliary Microphone...  Now, what kind of an operating system would permit an application program to change system settings like that with no input from the user....  Windows at its best.
