    Most probably the newer driver installed with Windows Update is not fully compatible with your card. Use the show/hide tool to hide the audio driver update and prevent it from installing automatically again. A new driver doesn't necessarily support all models. If the file becomes too large they could deliberately left out some older models to keep the file small. That explains why a newer driver doesn't always work for all audio cards.

    Yes, exactly. I have seen a couple of old computers that have an onboard Realtek AC'97 (not HD) card and it is a known issue that latest driver causes a BSOD. The only way to make the card work in Windows 10 and avoid installing another card is to force-install some specific drivers (read respective thread). To avoid Windows Update reinstalling the problematic driver and causing a BSOD you must use the Show/Hide tool. As long as you hide a specific update and there is no newer update that replaces it, problem solved! I guarantee it!

    Which one do I pick? One set of them says "anniversary edition", and there's a 24.8 MB difference between the two sets (96.5 vs. 71.7).
