My system uses Realtek Audio. I had it working for a little bit but Windows decides to keep reverting back to these other ones that do not work at all. I have all updates turned off including the ones with the drivers and everything and it just keeps reverting back to the crap ones. Does anyone have a solution to fix this? thank you

All I can offer is this, which definitely applied in earlier versions of Windows 10 but I have no idea whether or not it carries over to Versions 1703 or 1709:
