Hi I Refreshed my computer and just when I got everything working great, Windows updated without asking me and killed my sound again. Now I'll have to figure out how to restore my original drivers again. I looked and it clearly shows that it updated my Sound Blaster drives which I didn't want it to do. I wish it would tell me what it's doing and let me say don't do that. Mike OK, I got my sound working again, it took several restarts uninstalls and reinstalls, but it's working. Does anyone know a way I can block Windows from automatically updating the drivers for my sound card? I have my updates set to notify my now, but I'd like to be able to say don't install this! I'm now making a System Image with everything working before I go any farther.
