Can't uninstall High Definition Audio Device (Keeps installing)

Hi

So i have tried to uninstall this damn High definition Audio device. I have 8 of them (because i have SLI i guess). So i have tried follow this guide for example:
PROCEEDURE to PERMANENTLY DISABLE THE NVIDIA HD sound device(BLACK SCREEN & LOGIN FIX)

Didn't work. It started to install again when i go to windows.

From the link you gave, it read to disable and not uninstall. If you disable the driver (as it suggests), the driver will still be there (but not active), and it shouldn't automatically install upon a restart. If, however, you are uninstalling the driver (and it reads as though you are), then upon a reboot the computer will detect that one or more hardware devices in the system have no drivers installed and will attempt to automatically install them.

Yeah that seems pretty logic. I will try again soon, have to take a break from trying for a while.
I think i followed the guide pretty correct, and i did just Deactivate them in safe mode. Then i booted to windows, i think, they were installed automatic. But i will see.
Thanks

God, i really suck on following guides. Sry for this thread.

What i did wrong was that i should go to system devices first and not sound and play devices.
In system devices there were 3 High definition Audio Devices. I checked what bus my graphic cards were in and then i disabled both of them. All the 8 High defintion Devices dissapered in Sound And play devices

Lol, no problem. Sometimes it just takes an outsider to look at the situation and point out where you're going wrong.

Hmm seems it still conflicts even if i disable it. So i still have crashes in BF3. And when i don't use my headset or any sound, i don't crash.

I have Realtek disabled, but i actually think its High Definition Audio in Device manager that conflicts. As i have 2 (8 in Sound and Games devices) of them (when SLI) and only 1 (4 in Sound and games devices) when you play single. That actually make sense, because when i play on Single card i can play for hours, because it only has 1 High Defintion Audio Device to follow. When it's 2 maybe they conflict.

Now to the question:
How do i uninstall them?

As fast as i start my computer they install, no chance i can stop it either....I have told Windows Update to NOT update, but it seems it gets drivers from system files. Should i remove them?

Or well it seems my 2 High Defintion Audios conflicts when i activate some else sound, i guess. Because it works when i have them disabled when i don't have any sound input.
