    Set the desktop picture to change every 10 seconds (like I said before), and just do your daily routines; do your own thing on the computer. Since those glitches happen frequently for me at certain random times (like 5 times a row in 5 minutes (every one minute), then don't happen at all for like a few hours) and so on..
    Then if you notice this happening so frequently, like 5 times in one minute, then we can almost accurately reach the conclusion that your issue arises from the Slideshow as well.

    (PS: I've been listening to music for the past hour or so non-stop and have barely heard the glitch) So it's definitely random on its own.

    Also, maybe tomorrow, disable Picture Slideshow and see if you have any glitches at all.
    Hmm slide show doesn't appear to be causing the issue :/

    As a matter of fact, within the past day or so, my audio is barely ever glitching now. Never did a critical new Windows Update (except for Microsoft Defender Virus Definitions).

    What I'd suggest if you haven't already done so, is to make a 100% certainty that it's not from the slideshow; Make a visual & auditory check to experience it at least once to see that the audio glitches exactly at the moment your Desktop does Not change backgrounds.

    Other than that, hope you find a solution. My audio glitches seemed to have almost completely vanished. Hope I didn't jinx it.

    I think it might be my graphics card dying... I was playing Rising Storm and it was happening every couple of seconds and then my display driver crashed

    Oh okay. Maybe try updating your graphics card software from their website. Hopefully that would fix the problem.

    Got a video of the issue. The stutter occurs at 7 seconds in. It's pretty quiet to hear because I videoed it on a potato.
