    windows update interfere with sound?

    I had to go back (recover) to a backup (True Image clone of C:) from Dec. 1 due to a problem I couldn't solve.
    It worked and solved the problem (until now).
    After this recovery I lost windows last update and returned from ver.1709 to ver.1703.
    This was yesterday. Then all I did is update of a freeware program Calibre (epub viewer)
    and when I shut down windows noticed that I'm in 1703 and added some updates.
    Today when I started I noticed that my speakers don't work. Checked everything I could and found nothing to corrects.
    I have a Gigabyte board with on board sound by realtek.
    Recovering again revived the speakers.
    My question: could windows updates intefere with the sound?
    What could cause this failure?
    Does the fact that I still have DeliveryOptimization & SoftwareDistribution folders interfere with the updates so that I have to delete their content?
    Thank you
