Windows reinstalls my HD Audio drivers...

Hi

How do i get rid of the **** driver update?
I didn't have internet connected so it's getting the driver from my computer somewhere..

ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting

How do i stop that!?!?
Or how can i remove the system file that it uses?
It's:
C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\hdaudbus.sys

THanks

My usual solution to this type of problem is to remove ALL instances of the device, then boot to Safe Mode and enable 'Show hidden devices', then remove any remaining ones, and any yellow- or red-flagged devices, then reboot to Normal Mode, and let Windows sort itself out.
That seems to work about 9 time out of 10

But how do you mean?
I managed to remove hdaudbus.sys (i tho backed them up) succesfully. Both in the filerespository(?) and in the driver folder.

It then windows didn't manage to install it. BUT! It didn't solve it, odd enough, i still crash.
Anyways, now i get 2 "PCI-Unit" that can't find it's file (hdaudbus.sys that i removed)

But i deactivated them, but maybe i should try and uninstall them in safe mode.

Oh dear - NEVER just delete system files!

First repair your system -
SFC -System File Checker - Instructions
Click on the Start button
type in the Search box
CMD.EXE
right-click on the only file that is found
Select Run as Administrator
- the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up
At the Command prompt, type

SFC /SCANNOW

and hit the Enter key
Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot to Normal Mode - with any luck the devices will now be installed properly.

THEN go to Device Manager
UNINSTALL all the affected devices in Normal Mode, then reboot to Safe Mode, and open Device Manager again.
in the View options, click on Show Hidden Devices
Again, Uninstall all affected devices, and any showing yellow or red-flagged entries.
Rebbot, and allow Windows to install everything.
Then reboot again.

Still the same problem. I don't want them to keep installing. These HD Audio Control units are the one causing the crashes. Im 100% positive on that. When i don't have any sound plugged in, i don't crash. This only happens in BF3 tho.

I just want them to go away. But i'm thinking of first install my sound driver first, then i install my graphic driver. Because it seems my graphic driver use the old windows file to the audio. And maybe if i install the realtek sound driver, it uses that instead. I dunno, gettin desperate

They will NEVER go away until they are properly installed in the first place.

You need to give more detail about what happened when you followed my instructions.

The problem may well not lie with the drivers themselves - but the other programs which you have using said drivers.

Please look in your Event Viewer - what related error messages do you see?
