Yes your right about Win 10 updates and driver updates..
Most of my issues have been solved and in reality have been using 8 year old laptop and upgraded to Win 10 from Win 7 and there is some residue left over..
It was never a clean install and upgraded with a CD Win 10 upgrade. .For some reason Win 10 sees my Winradio Virtual Sound Card as a sound source...even if I am not using Winradio..which is probably right..
Saying goes....if aint broke don't fix it)
Touch wood as of today have sorted sound out and with a new Samsung 500gb SSD Drive is very very fast)
