Maybe your BIOS allows you to disable the USB controller ?

Since your are using a kt133 based motherboard, may I suggest a BIOS
upgrade ? I had noise in my captured sounds for months until I dared
to flash my kt133 motherboard using a boot floppy image from the FreeDOS

Your problem obviously isn't the same as mine but this might help
