    I did and it worked fine. 7zip did complain when opened it that there was something wrong with the CAB, but everything did appear to decompress properly.

    Up and running on the new driver right now.
    Shouldn't have had to do that, but whatever. Thanks, Microsoft.

    Yes, that extraction warning is normal with these cabs. Glad you got it installed. :-)

    Windows 10 updated last week.

    When the dust had settled, RealTek was
    gone from all three computers ;(

    I can hear audio through my headsets but
    not my speakers - which is a royal PITB.

    managed to get audio back on two ... and
    nothing I've done will restore it on #3

    All are on Windows 10 - 64 bit

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

    Hi CountMike

    I haven't a clue

    It's a small HP form factor with
    an intel core processor - not an
    intel mfg motherboard - don't
    know who made the board... just
    has an Intel CPU...

    hope that's as clear as mud, eh?
