You need to copy the sndvol32.exe image from your commercial XP installation media (not a vendor-supplied "recovery" CD-ROM) to the system32 folder by performing the following steps:

Start a command session by clicking on the Start button then clicking on Run. In the Run box type cmd then click OK

Navigate to the CD-ROM drive by typing
cd d:
or whichever drive letter your CD drive is listed under
press Enter

Navigate to the i386 folder by typing
cd i386
Press Enter
Expand the sndvol32.ex_ file by typing
expand -r sndvol32.ex_ %systemroot%\system32
Press Enter

Once your Start button returns you might want to scan your PC with Malwarebytes in safe mode to remove any unwanted software.

I have a Shure mic hooked up to my emachines T3092 through a Behringer mixing board. The board works fine, but I am getting over modulated scratchy voice when I record to cool edit pro. Tried every...

Which particular mic?

Go through the signal chain. Mic to mixer to pc.

All the level changes are suspect, what busses are you using...

mic to channel 1 on mixer.
trim on mixer 1
fader on mixer 1
L/R balance
fader on L/R
which output from mixer are you using

Then the windows mixer (start/run "sndvol32.exe")
adjust the volume, WAVE, mic, etc.

My first instinct is the windows mic level.

1) Open the Control Panel2) Double-click on Regional and Language Options (if you are in Classic View) 
or Double-click on Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options in Category View

3) Click on the Languages tab, then click on Details

5) Click on the Advanced Tab
6) Finally, place a checkmark in the box "Turn off advanced text services" and Click Ok

The language bar next to the System Tray should disappear, and CTFMON.EXE will unload from memory.

No sound I can see people talking and players work but still no sound

This generally means the application that controls volume in Windows, sndvol32.exe, is corrupt rather than uninstalled. There isn't a clear reason why this happens, although there have been cases where third party drivers from soundcard manufacturers completely damage the entire Windows volume control setup.

if you can search for the file and it shows up, try using a windows install disk to repair the files.

let me know if this helps.
