Default Mbox 2 mini crackles in windows 8.1 x64

Hello,
I recently installed Windows 8.1 64bit and I here's my problem:
I'm using REAPER from Cockos, with a bunch of Kontakt VST Instruments. Nothing fancy, the library factory and a few light instruments. I noticed that, from time to time, the sound starts crackling (something like down-sampling combined with bit-crushing). Well, this could happen, since I only have 4GB of RAM, although the instruments are pretty light on RAM. But what surprised me was that it happened once or twice when I was watching a YouTube video.
I didn't have those problems when I was running Windows 8.1 32bit.
Could be a driver problem? (after all it's a 6 year old driver)

Here's my configuration:

Intel Core i5 @ 3,1GHz
4 GB RAM DDR3 1333 MHz
2 x WD SATA 3, 7200 RPM
Mbox 2 Mini

Solved! I just uninstalled ALL the USB drivers from Device Manager, restarted the computer and, voila!
Even when I'm overloading the system with big samples, the audio is not hanging anymore. It warns me about it and occasionally gives a small break (half a second or so), but is not hanging.

I hope it will be useful for someone.
