Hi all,


I have got a whole range of Win 10 errors that I'm trying to fix, but will try to do them one by one. 

First off, the sound sample rate switches to 96000 every time I restart Windows. Also, in the advanced properties of my sound card both settings (regarding "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device") are checked every time I restart, even though I always leave them unchecked.


Also, I haven't got any sound in Windows at all until I start CueMixFx, the audio control panel for the soundcard. I have now been in contact with Motu's support (the soundcard is a Microbook IIc) for almost a year and they have never heard of this issue before. We have tried switching to old driver, different USB ports, different cable, but it just doesn't work well. 


Another thing that might be associated with this is that both Google Chrome and Opera started to open all pages from my last session (in addition to the ones I've set to actually open on startup). So every time I restart the computer, it's like it is resetting itself somehow.

You opened a new thread in the Malware Removal Logs forum entitled:  Windows 10 acting weird, check for malware?, almost simultaneously with this one.


The convention at Bleeping Computer is:  One computer, one problem (or set of problems), one forum, one thread at a given point in time.   If multiple threads are open and conflicting advice is given it is entirely possible that those members participating on thread one will not have any idea that thread two exists and what's going on there.


Given what you've already offered on another thread on this forum it would appear that going through the malware removal process, if any, should be done first.  If, after this is complete, there are remaining issues with your machine that are or appear to be Windows 10 related please open a new thread on this forum to address the issues, one at a time.


This thread is now being closed so that no confusion will arise.
