    Can't uninstall sound card driver that freezes my PC


    So i have a sound card, Creative SoundBlaster Audigy SE, i downloaded a driver made by a guy "Daniel_K" because there isn't really a good official Win 10 driver from Creative for my sound card. That driver worked perfectly with both WIn 7 and Win 10 until today when i tried to play some music but all of the sudden my PC froze and i had to force restart it. If i use that soundcard for playing any sound from my computer it will freeze in a matter of seconds, so i tried to remove the driver but i can't, when i click unistall it says: "There was a problem starting C:\Program -- The specified module could not be found". I don't know why. I tried to delete everything on my own from Program Files that was from Creative and I also tried to remove from Registry everything that was about Creative but they still are in my list of Installed programs.

    And yes, everything is up to date.

    I solved it, I just used Revo Uninstaller to remove the driver, then i reinstalled it and now works perfectly, the only problem i have is that my sound card is now "2-SB Audigy" instead of "SB Audigy" but this may be because i put it in another PCI Slot.
