    Realtek driver problems with Windows 10

    Hey before i mention my problem i explain my situation:
    2 user accounts on a windows 10 machine on user1 sound works fine and just from time to time the setting for spotify gets reset on boot (its set to 30% and jumps to 100% from time to time.)

    on user2 on the other hand it resets permanently - its also set to 30% but everytime you reopen any programm (chrome,spotify etc) it jumps instantly to max again

    i dont think services or settings can be the cause as i copied the settings from account 1 (so all services that were enabled/disabled there are also disabled/enabled on this account)
    but now a friend told me realtek is a cause of this but im not so sure about that as both accounts use the same driver and on account 1 it doesnt happen that much (for chrome not all for example)
    to be fair i updated drivers 3days ago and have only been using account 2 since then (since then it happens instantly) but it happened even before that on both accounts so how likely is it that realtek is really the cause?

    edit: systemsounds for example just jump back to max volume instantly,every time aswell.
    id be happy about any suggestions.

    things ive tried:
    update drivers over device manager
    every setting in audio (turn off that sound adjusts when you get a call,turn off every enhancements etc) but nothing helped.

    UPDATE: ive logged over to my original account just to test some stuff,ALL settings are the same for audio,realtek has the same driver and the same services are running
    result---> spotify still goes to max volume on restart even on that account,but chrome does not. - if i set chrome to 30% on that account it stays there even after closing and opening chrome or restarting so i assume there has to be something wrong with the second windows account i created? or im missing some setting?
    any advice?

    try uninstalling the driver for the sound card :) I know you say you have tried to update but best to remove and reboot and normally fixes these things.
