Windows 7: Creative Sound card problems

You can try this if Windows is auto installing drivers.

  1. Go to Start–>Search type in gpedit.msc
  2. Click the file to open the Local Group Policy Editor and show Windows who is in control!!
  3. You want to go here: Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->System->Device Installation. Click on the sub folder Device Installation on the left and on the right side you will see the possible restrictions.
  4. Right Click on Prevent Installation of Devices not described by other policy settings and edit this option, set it on ENABLED.
  5. Reboot Windows and enjoy its inability to pollute your system with its standard driver, open gpedit.msc again and revert the change so you will be able to install your driver.
