Recording from Stereo Mix records massive feedback loop

I have never had this issue before in the 10 plus years I’ve used Audacity. I’ll sometimes use stereo mix to record samples. Suddenly it is creating a massive feedback loop which sounds amazing, but not exactly what I want.

Using a Dell laptop, Windows 10, Audacity 2.4.2

Possibly Windows update has enabled audio-enhancements (like pseudo surround-sound)
provided by RealTek or MaxxAudio.

Turn off Software Playthrough. It creates an internal feedback loop when you are recording the output from your soundcard.
