HELP PLEASE Sample rate changes from 41 to 48

I wonder if anyone has the same issue?

While Cubase Elements 9 is open, even if its not playing anything at the time, and If I open Chrome and play a video, immediately the sample rate wants to change from 41 to 48 Khz.

This happens with all browsers

Is this a Cubase issue or a windows issue or a browser issue??
Of course i can just close down Cubase before i watch any vids, but Im really curious why its doing this all of a sudden. It never did this in the past, Its a recent thing

Any help would be appreciated
