Feed back comes about becuase the Microphone is too close to the speakers or the volume is up too high.
Adjust the volume/speaker positioning/switch off speakers and use phones -all the ways to prevent speakers feeding the mic.

Try double clicking on the speaker icon near the clock bottom right, then mute the microphone.

Further to that I have to Mute both the Playback and Record microphone inputs.

However, to prevent feedback by using speakers I prefer a headset and mike.

To avoid constant plugging and unplugging of the headset I use a 3.5mm jackplug adapter. For an example see:

obtainable from any good audio outlet.

To use the spakers I turn the headset's volume control to minimum and turn the speakers on or vice versa depending which is in use.
