Windows 7: Sound blaster drivers after restart

Windows 7
Sound blaster drivers after restart

This is my orginal problem: my soundcard is the SB audigy 2. Back in XP the drivers usually worked fine and produced the right 'loudness' of sound.

It seems in windows 7 to only produce sound at the 40%-60% levels compared to XP. i know this for a fact since i've done testing.

So people told me to downland the daniel k drivers (SB Audigy Series Support Pack 3.6 (11/09/2009) - Creative Labs)

New problem: These drivers worked and fixed the problem however after i restart it goes back to the 40%-60% sound levels. What is happening is it rolling back the driver or what and how do I fix it?

More info: I run the installer and it asks me to restart to uninstall the old drivers I do that. Then when the computer reboots I re run the installer and the drivers install. Now my sound works perferctly however when I restart the next time it's back to the problem.

any ideas? thanks.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Did you do this first?
IMPORTANT: Before installing this version, start Windows in Safe Mode and delete the following files:

- 32-bit: C:\Windows\System32\UDAAPO32.DLL
- 64-bit: C:\Windows\System32\UDAAPO64.DLL and C:\Windows\SysWOW64\UDAAPO32.DLL

These drivers are supposed to fix the low volume problem.
Fixes and improvements:

- Fixes the static issue when playing audio using DirectSound, WaveOut or WASAPI interfaces.
- DTS Interactive encoder now works on Windows XP without any tricks.
- Fixes a cosmetic issue on Audio Console, encoder status now says DTS Interactive.
- Readds support for 64-bit OpenAL and 64-bit ASIO.
