    When I upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium I received a warning of incompatibility of my PCI Audio card from C-Media. I didn't bother with uninstalling it before continuing with the Windows 7 upgrade. The upgrade went smoothly but, sure enough, the audio card didn't work so I put in my old Creative Audigy ZS with the latest driver and it worked great with Windows 7 although it had trouble with Vista. That's why I got the inexpensive C-Media card.

    I still have the C-Media control panel icon link in my control panel and I want to delete or just remove it. The hardware is removed. The software and drivers are removed. I removed C-Media entries in the registry but still I have the dead link in the control panel.

    Is there a context menu for the control panel in the registry where I can remove this item?

    If anyone has a solution I would appreciate it as this icon is a bright fluorescent blue-green and is annoying to see in the control panel.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the Lounge!!

    Search for .cpl files in C:\Windows\system32. See if you can identify the file for c-media and then delete it.
