Unselected Microphone / sv_voiceenable Problem

I've played NS off and on for a few years now and I'm still running into this issue;

Part 1 is the Unselecting Microphone. Despite having all voice_ options turned off in my config.cfg NS always de-selects my microphone as the input device inside of Windows (XP SP2). I have to manually alt-tab out of the game, reselect it and tab back in. I don't use in-game voice comms (nor do I listen to them) I use Teamspeak 2 with my friends. I saw this one vague solution but I couldn't understand which "voice volume" parameter he was suggesting.

Part 2 is sv_voiceenable. If I set sv_voiceenable to = 0, then almost every time I start up NS, NS crashes immediately. Once or twice it won't crash but almost always, it crashes. If I set sv_voiceenable to = 1, it never causes a crash. No idea why or what it's doing but it's kinda strange.

System (yes, I know, it's ancient, but it runs NS decently);
