Windows 7: Manually Delete Drivers?

Manually Delete Drivers?

I've tried a 7 Forums Guide to delete drivers from an elevated command prompt. Access is denied whether GUI or CMD window. Ideally I would like permission to delete from GUI. I want to use the mobo manufacturer's original sound driver & not the MS driver (that I cannot delete in Device manager.) It installs each boot, as trumps the original as newer. Really annoying & tricksy, so I do not know what term to Google & hope I'm not being lazy to bother you with my question.

There are five driver files within the same system32 folder;

C:\Windows\system32>DEL /F /S /Q /A "C:\Windows\system32\drivers\drmk.sys"

My audio will die if computer left to sleep for a "longer" (as opposed to shorter) period. I hope the original driver may work better. I like to leave my tower slept as it is much quicker to resume than to boot, Linux works just fine that way. I am taking the Windows challenge & quite enjoying myself till now.

If you install the board's audio drive that should disable the generic Windows 7 one. It doesn't generally need to be fussed with at all.

Is this a new problem?

Maybe I'm overcomplicating things & going about it tits over arse. Have installed official Realtek driver & hope it sticks next boot. Not sure if already tried this? I'll soon let you know. Thanks for your time.

You were indeed correct fine Sir! What's more driver seems stable when slept overnight.
