    Help! I've seen everyone else have success but my problem is a bit different. I have the same refresh problems, but every time I try to open the Control Panel to uninstall refreshes. And it refreshes faster and almost immediately... whereas if I leave it alone and don't try to access Control Panel, the refresh happens at longer interval.....In other words, I can't access Control Panel to uninstall. Please let me know if there is a dos prompt command that I can use to try and do a run-around this issue?
    You may not believe this, but right click on Control Panel [if it is on the taskbar}, then quickly go to Programs to uninstall the necessary programs. The refresh will be delayed just long enough.

    I am new to Windows 10.

    I don't see IDT Audio, but there is Conexant HD Audio. Is it safe to uninstall it to stop refreshing?

    Thank You.

    Hi Everyone,
    Just registered to be able to thank Tim for the IDT Audio tip. Tim how did you figure out that this was a possible issue? Would really like to know. It worked as well for me. Can't thank you enough. Actually rolled back an earlier WIN 10 install due to the refresh problem. Reinstalled WIN10 tonight after updating the graphics driver and still had the refresh issue, but not anymore thanks to you.

    I did not see IDT Audio in Device Mgr, but it did appear in the Control Panel under Programs and Features. Simultaneously hitting the Windows button and the x will open a pop up on the lower left screen . Programs and Features is at the top of the list.
    Hope this helps.

    I had the same quick refresh issue while trying to access the Control Panel. Press the Windows and x keys simultaneously then select Programs and Features at the top of the pop up that appears in the lower left screen. This worked for me.

    Pressing the Windows key 1st then the x key opens the pop up in the lower left screen. Thought I was pressing them simultaneously.

    had a same problem with fresh upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Windows desktop and explorer keeps constantly refreshing every 40-60 seconds.
    My problem was in High Definition audio drivers. Error was cousing file RTSndMgr.cpl.
    Unninstal drivers and restart windows 10. Win 10 then innstals auto drivers for your sound and thats it. Event wiever did not report any errors.

    Heyy I see some of you guys can't access the control panel fast enough before it crashes...this was happening to me and then I remember about the task manager. Open up the task manager, go to file on the top left of task manager, hit run new task and a search box will pop up. Type in control panel and just hit enter and control panel should pop up. By the way before you can do all this you have to keep trying to open control panel until the screen just stays black and then open task manager with control + alt + delete....anyways once the screen is black and the control panel opens you shouldn't have a problem uninstalling idt audio like Tim said. I hope this helps

    I had problems with the control panel closing before I was able to uninstall. I found this way of making it stay on .. This is what I did. In cortana type run and press enter
    click on the run desktop option
    In the open box type in msconfig
    click on the third tab called services in the systems configure box
    click on the heading service to get alphabetical order
    scroll right down to Windows error reporting service and untick the box
    click ok
    this will stablise the control panel allowing you to uninstall the IDT audio file

    fantastic fix thank you so much
