This:

"I have interference and audio distortion on any microphone plugged in "

Power down, unplug, open the case.

Clean out dust and debris.

Verify/double check by sight and feel that all connectors, cards, RAM, and jumpers are fully and firmly in place.

Use a bright flashlight to inspect all around the I/O panel and other audio connections for signs of damage, metal touching metal. Likewise carefully examine all ports, plugs, and all along the audio/video cables as well.

Objective being to simply be certain that there is no physical problem involved.

That said my next thought is that there are corrupted or buggy Windows files involved.

Try running "sfc /scannow" and "dism"

That leads me to another thought: USB.

If possible, try an independently powered USB hub to connect USB devices versus relying on host computer USB power to provide wattage.

PC [USB port] ---- USB cable ----> USB Hub (with its own power) [HUB USB ports] ----- USB cables ----> USB devices.

Sketch out a diagram showing all audio components and all of their respective cable connections and power connections.

Include everything that has audio. Also include power strips, surge protectors, etc..

Any loops? I.e., A connects in some way to B which connects to C which connects to D which then connects to A.

Next, as methodically as you can, try removing each respective device from the loop. Change/remove only one thing at a time.

Determine if the interference ends or changes in some manner.

Objective being to narrow down to one device or connection path.
