    You're welcome.

    Do you hear any difference or see any difference in the Realtek Audio Manager?

    Seems like Realtek is releasing new drivers almost every week now. It was about
    every two weeks earlier. It's hard to keep up with all these driver updates from
    these vendors.

    Ok.

    How do you install the darn things so that you don't get the "Elevation" / "Blocked program" prompt when
    logging on as a standard user?

    I've tried every way possible with no success.

    1. Right click on the downloaded file before installing and press the Unblock
    button and the Apply button.

    2. Even installing when logged on as an administrator, a UAC approval prompt is
    required. (Note the shield on the icon.) I believe this is required for all
    device driver installs.

    Did that.
    Still got the blocked program prompt when logging on as a standard user.

    I'll uninstall and try again.

    Try right clicking and set to always run as administrator.

    Hey Cal Bear,
    I downloaded the new driver from the link above, and installed it. When
    it was done installing the machine rebooted and I received a notice that
    it was ready to use, but it wasn't there. The realtek audio manager was
    gone, and a check of the driver showed that windows had installed a
    generic driver. I didn't even have the option to roll back because the
    install file first uninstalls the original driver. A system restore made
    me all warm and fuzzy again, but what do you suppose happened there?

    Vista Home premium, 32 bit...

    The first time you run the installer, if removers the Realtek driver, and
    restarts your computer. In the meantime Windows will try to install it's
    generic driver; just let Windows do it's thing (it may fail or "succeed", it
    doesn't really matter. Should it "succeed", the generic driver won't
    work). You then have to run the Realtek installer one more time, and reboot
    one more time. Then the new driver will be installed.

    What driver did restore roll you back to ? 6.0.5 ?

    It went back to 6.0.1.5361. Yeh, it dawns on me that I was told to
    install the driver a second time by the install dialog box, but the
    message saying that it was ready to use fooled me. Maybe I'll try again.

    Addendum;
    A second try succeeded. Thanks to all for the help.

    I have to readjust the settings after each update. I have 5.1 speakers and
    it keeps reverting back to 2 2.1 by default. The only real sound
    difference/improvement I noticed was after the 7/15 update. Have you noticed
    any changes?

    I haven't installed them yet.

    Damn, these Realtek driver updates are becoming a full time job -- every two
    weeks and now every week!
