Wild guess the updates may have affected old sound card driver. There may be an updated driver for the sound card. I believe Glary utilities free version is providing updated driver information. You may want to try that.
If the receiver is that low (and the volume level is at max) there may be a hardware issue related to the internal receiver. The piece is replaceable, but must be serviced by Apple or have your iPhone replaced by AT&T (if under warranty).
In some models of iPhones, this was a known issue that would occur through normal wear & tear. An easy way to tell if it is a hardware issue is to pair your iPhone with a bluetooth headset. While keeping the volume level at max, is it louder or the same as the iPhone's built-in receiver?
If it is louder, than chances are pretty good that the internet receiver needs replacing. If not, then you may have a software issue affecting the sound levels. Try rebooting your iPhone as this tends to "fix" a great many issues affecting iPhones. If that doesn't solve it, perform a sync to backup data, next update or restore your iPhone and then perform the test again.
Check taskbar volume control and make sure its max. If you have volume buttons make sure they are maxed. Some laptops are a key combo to increase/decrease volume. Make sure whatever program you are running that the volume slider is all the way up. Go into your control panel and double check your volume settings. Go into your device manager and make sure there are no exclamation points in yellow next to any audio devices or codecs.
I had the same problem with standard over the head earphones, however, when I used it with earbuds, the volume increased tremendously and we now have no problems with the volume sounding too low. My daughter has a hard time with regular earbuds, so I purchased some "clip" style earbuds.
