I have been having a problem for a while where I get a UAC prompt when I open my audio playback devices dialog. If I boot into safe mode it does not have the UAC prompt.


The prompt reads: "C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe" shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL mmsys.cpl,,playback


Exact same issue here, but with no solution:



I am using Windows 10 with the Creators update and had the issue before the update.


Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
