    How to stop Windows 10 automatically installing Realtek audio drivers?


    Just like the title says, I don't want the realtek audio drivers as it completely messes with my audio and also doesn't correctly switch when i plug in headphones for example.
    It also doesn't allow for the 'speaker fill' enhancement to be used when playing stereo content through surround sound.

    Windows itself does a far better job as opposed to realtek.

    Every time i uninstall realtek it automatically gets reinstalled.

    Sorry Microsoft, you don't know best.

    Interesting, try to stop and disable Device Setup Manager service.
    Start - Computer Management - Services - find Device Setup Manager.

    I set permissions on the realtek folder in program files for 'SYSTEM' to deny all access (after removing it). and that seems to be working for now. but only time will tell

    I had the same exact same issue with Realtek audio drivers after upgrading to Windows 10. So I denied all access just like shown in that pic. Solved my problem, now my sound comes from all speakers and sub. Thanks mate!

    Yes well done, have been looking around for a few days on how to disable the Realtek HD upgrade (what a useless app that is).

    To be clear, I denied access as described above, uninstalled the program using add/remove programs, rebooted and now I have all my connections back again!!!

    Roll back driver


    Open Device Manager > Sound video and game controllers> Double click on Realtek > click on driver tab> click on "Roll back driver " > press ok.
