After sound driver update (Realtek HD audio) via device manager, Vista asks for permission to run C:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\HDA\RtHDVCpl.exe -s at very startup. I never had such a problem even after several updates before. Unchecking the box in prompt window doesn't help. It won't remember my choice. Everytime I started my pc, it asked for permission to run.

 

So I decided to use my restore point created before updating. Any opinion about why could that be happened?

Hi,

It happens because of the way the driver is distributed/installed Windows recognizes that the file come from the Internet and block the execution until confirmation.

 

To fix that you need to copy the file RtHDVCpl.exe into the Desktop then right click the file an click Properties then on the General tab click the Unlock button.

Copy the file back to the original location and accept all prompts to replace the existing file.

 

Note: Normally the file can't be unlocked directly from the Program Files folder.

Why didn't Windows behave like this before? Why doesn't Windows remember my choice?

Just guessing the driver have a bunch of files instead of only a setup file most likely inside a zip file? The second part is in my opinion a Windows bug!

Yes. It was a zip file as I always did when updating via device manager.

 

Thanks for your opinion.
