How to configure microphone headset so sound doesn't play through mic

Last Modified: 2013-12-21
I purchased a new Logitech headset and started playing World of Warcraft...cool game.  Problem is when I talk through Ventrilo to my friends, they can hear any audio I hear when I'm speaking extremely loud.  The headset works fine when my sound is off (but what fun is that?).  I tried another headset and it's the same thing.  It's in my configuration somewhere but no idea where.  Running Windows XP Media Center and using a Realtek HD Audio card (on board).  

This is probably a simple configuration issue but can't find it.  Thanks!
