Open your soundcard mixer controls through the volume icon in the sys tray and find the recording properties. Make sure the what you hear box is not checked. Also deselct all the others until you need them leaving just the MIDI enabled.

When you record the midi file make sure you solo just the track you want to record (or mute all the others) then you will only record that one track.

yeah, if you are recording with the microphone input, make sure that is checked. if you want line in, make sure that is checked. i had that problem and i had "stereo mix" accidently checked. stereo mix is all sounds coming from the computer.
