    AlAzraq and D4ni3l, see my post #2864 for tips and see if that works for you.
    I found RTSnMg64.cpl in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\don't load
    I rename it
    Realtek is now back in control panel



    thanks

    Never knew what would happen when one renames things like that since it might complain even though it works but good to hear it's all working for you, now you can delete the renamed entry.

    I finally formatted the PC (it is quite fast with the SSD and having all the programs at hand) and my panel is back but, I had to install the previous drivers from MSI's webpage and now I left it with them as they sound good and the mic sounds perfect. There some tabs of the Audio Manager asking me to install Nahimic which I am not going to do.

    Funny thing is that Realtek Audio Manager does not have noise cancelling option (maybe is in those hidden tabs that require Nahimic) but it sound great.

    To summarize, now it is working as I wanted to so I will stick with that.

    Thanks all for your help!

    I bought this sound card.
    Amazon.com: Sound Blaster Z PCIe Gaming Sound Card with High Performance Headphone Amp and Beam Forming Microphone: Computers Accessories
    It works great. The audio quality blows away Realtek. The real reason is because I am sick of updating the Realtek drivers twice a week just to improve then make the sq worse. Gets old fast. It reminded me back in the day of the dd-wrt which frequently broke things then fixed them just to break them gain until I found the stable much less updated shibby tomato.

    I'm pleased the Sound Blaster card sorted it out reddice, a good move by you :)

    Thanks. Despite some of the negative reviews the drivers work great in W10. Installing them there is no bloat. Just a control panel which once I tweak I can disable from startup.

    Also meant to say the creative control panel (which I needed to set to 2.1 by default it sets to 5.1 which sounds bad on a 2 speaker system) I turn everything off to color the sound. I let the speakers do the sound and leave everything on flat off.

    Also I love the red light that people complain about. It matches my case fan which is red perfectly.

    Hello guys,

    I noticed there are problems regarding the Audio Manager missing from the system tray after the 2.82 version update. I also have the same problem. I read that installing the MUC version would fix this issue. However, I don't know what version I should download from MUC.

    I have Windows 10 Creators Update 64bit for which I have tried the driver from the 2nd row from the table found here

    Which version should I download from MUC to get the Audio Manger back in the system tray?

    JohnnyGui,

    I think some more information would help as the Audio Manager in system tray can be toggled on/off from the Audio Manager itself using the i icon and then "Display icon in notification area". Are you able to find Audio Manager in Control Panel or/and the Start Menu? See post #2864 for other tips.
