  1. Windows Update Destroyed My Audio


    I'm so upset. I have the current audio drivers for my computer, so the suggestion to update my drivers hasn't solved the problem. This is not cool, and it's a problem that hasn't been fixed, which is why I had to uninstall this update the FIRST time and go back to an earlier update. Unfortunately, Microsoft is not supporting the earlier Windows 10 version, so I had to update yesterday and I'm back to crappy-to-no sound.

    Does Microsoft feel any urgency to fix this issue,?

    :)
