It might not be the sound that is the issue. It is more likely to be something else that is slow and therefore delaying everything, including the sound. You could try some disabling in msconfig to see if that proves anything.

Raviknath, I pretty much agree with Derek except he has more faith in human nature than I do. Suspect you have a nasty (virus, worm/trojan, etc.?). Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Malware Bytes (Google for location) seems to be the preferred remover, but I've run into a few it couldn't handle. Superantispyware seems able to handle all comers. (Info only. I’m not paid for recommendation. WARNING! FYI, a full scan on mine takes over an hour.) can do the job and you can get it free @:

among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update any cleaner prior to running. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
Disable 'restore' after cleaning and run it again (to remove any nasties living there, restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back should you later ‘restore’.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try. One or the other of our suggestions should fix it.

Yes I quite agree that a virus or trojan is a good possibility and that MalwareBytes is a good start if your AV isn't finding anything.
