    New Realtek HD Audio Drivers (ver. 1.91 22 April 2008):


    http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads...=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false


    Add/Fix
    1.) Driver :
    1. Fix DTM 1.2 KS topology test fail issue.
    2. Customizations.


    NOTE: There is now a disclaimer before you can download the drivers that it is
    best to obtain new drivers from your computer/motherboard manufacturer since
    they may have made customizations to their hardware; although, I personally have
    never had a problem with the drivers downloaded directly from the Realtek site.

    No, the Realtek HD Audio Manager red speaker icon always seems to load on every
    reboot here.

  4. And now, for the bad
    RTKVHDA.sys and RTKVHDA64.sys V.6.0.1.5605 are in that updated driver
    package. Did they post a Disclaimer for the vulnerability ?

    Caveat emptor !

    Hi, Mow,

    I'm reading the wintercore site as indicating the versions prior to this
    release are vulnerable. If you look in #6 Products Affected, they're
    using the symbol less than (<) before the release number. I'm assuming
    6.01.5605 is the fixed release.

  7. You are correct, Tom. That bracket does indicate lesser versions of the
    drivers for Vista are vulnerable :

    The Public Disclosure was one day after Realtek put out the latest
    drivers. So, if anyone is reading this and has the *older, vulnerable*
    versions installed ... go get them here:
    http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads...=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

    Cal Bear '66 to the rescue ... away.

    Check if resetting the icon to display fixes the icon loading. Open the
    HD Audio Manager and click the information icon. Toggle the setting
    to Display icon in the notification area.

    While not related to this particular issue, there are a couple of other
    issues to be aware of here too. Loading Logitech's SetPoint software will
    sometimes break the driver. A driver reinstall will fix this issue. Also,
    for those that run SAM Broadcaster, the last version of the Realtek drivers
    will sometimes kill the output. SAM must be completely uninstalled, and
    reinstalled from scratch. Would pretty much advise that unless the update
    fixes issues that are currently being experienced to stay with what is
    working.
