Now, I actually already made a hotkey to mute the volume.

I got nircmd and put in this command, Nircmd.exe mutesysvolume 2. The problem is that it doesn't work when I start up a PC game (like battlefield or grand theft auto).

Now, it used to work when I had Windows XP 32 bit. I now have Windows 7 64 bit.

Is there a way to make it mute the volume when I have a game running? (on Windows 7 64 bit)

I gotta ask, are there volume control buttons on your keyboard? Many keyboards have them and people forget they are there. – Keltari Sep 10 '12 at 7:34

You can make any disagreeable hot key with AutoHotKey software.
