Why have my sound enhancements changed?

Hey everyone, I had to update my computer a few days ago and I wanted to add the virtual surround sound effect that's in the speaker properties. But since I updated, Instead of seeing the 'Dolby' tab, it says 'Enhancements' where those effects are completely different to the previous ones. How can I fix this? What happened to the 'Dolby' effects?

Have you tried re-installing the driver?

@zigzag3143 Actually, I haven't even thought of doing that. How would I? Would I need to uninstall it then find the driver on the internet? Or is there a 'reinstall' option somewhere?
