    Remove SmartAudio link from Control Panel


    Hello, I need help removing the SmartAudio application from my Control Panel. Every time I click on it, it says "failed to initialize" - I no longer have it nor do I need it. I would just like to get rid of it from Control Panel, it's not slowing my system down or anything, it's the OCD in me that is killing me seeing a non working function there! Thank you

    I was able to fix it by installing the drivers and then manually uninstalling - if mod can delete this thread, that'd be great. thanks!
