My privacy settings are already set to allow the microphone. My issue is that, as soon as the update was applied, my G430 headset's microphone won't pick up any sound unless I talk very loudly - even though the volume and boost are both at max in settings.
If the privacy settings were responsible, it wouldn't pick up anything at all.
This happens any time I am using the mic - testing in the settings menu, it will pick up (green bar) as soon as I start talking. In any VOIP setting (in-game, TeamSpeak, etc) it will only pick up if I start talking very, very loudly.
It was working fine last night before I applied the update.
