Slow shutdown after installing latest X-Fi and 7900 GTX drivers.

Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by Skybuck Flying, Sep 8, 2010.

  1. Damn,

    It has done exactly what I didn't want it to do...

    It actually installed the driver from 0008 which I was trying to get rid
    of...

    It now says the same error message:

    "Audio Driver Emulator: DLLML.exe - Application Error"

    This is starting to piss me off !

    I am now going to remove everything again and then do a manual delete...

    Maybe that will get rid of it !

    GOD DAMN FUCKING RETARDS OVER THERE AT CREATIVE !

    Bye,

  2. This is just terrible even after deleting the program files\creative
    folder...

    There is still a whole bunch of CT*.* / creative related stuff in the
    C:\Windows folder...

    Some of those files are from Microsoft like CTFMON.exe...

    But most are still from creative...

    I am gonna delete most of those files from creative to see if that helps.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  3. Well at least I have removed the audio drivers ct*.sys from system32 which
    turned up in a search...

    Hopefully now everything can be installed up to 0006 and not beyond...

    I didn't remove the audio driver from the cd version before installing the
    web update... I think it should do that automatically.

    But just to be sure I am gonna do that step as well. Maybe it will solve
    something.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  5. Ohoh...

    Maybe I shouldn't have done that...

    Maybe I should just have deleted the creative folder but not the *.sys
    things in system32...

    After installing drivers from cd it cannot detect my soundblaster anymore...

    So maybe those *.sys came with the operating system not sure...

    Gonna try and remove the audio driver and install update 0006 hopefully that
    will restore it.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  7. ****....

    0006 Web Update 5 still says there are newer drivers on the system...

    I think it's checking the registry for some kind of creative string or key
    or something

    GOD DAMN STUPID FUCKING RETARDS ARGH !

    Siiiggghhhh..

  8. Fortunately somebody might have figured it out already, he writes the
    following:

    http://nomoregoatsoup.wordpress.com...reative-vista-drivers-solve-install-problems/

    "
    This Manual uninstall method is quite complex and isn’t suited for most
    users. Always backup your valuables, registry etc. If it goes wrong, don’t
    blame me. It’s worth noting too that UAC should be disabled, in case anyone
    out there is crazy enough to be using it. I don’t recommend this way -it’s
    really a last resort thing.
    1) Firstly begin by totally uninstalling anything with the Creative tag on
    it.
    Control Panel > Control Panel Home > Programs > Uninstall a program
    2) Next we need to remove any tricky start up entries, again anything
    Creative must go.
    Control Panel > Control Panel Home > Programs > Change startup programs
    3) Now we need to remove Creative registry entries, and there’s quite a few.
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Creative Tech
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Creative Tech
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Creative Tech
    HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\Software\ASIO
    4) Remove these files/folders:
    C:\Windows\System32\BMX*.rfx
    C:\Windows\System32\Data
    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Data *(64-bit only)
    C:\Windows\{*.BAK
    C:\Windows\{*.CDF *Under Vista, requires additional actions to be
    successfully deleted, see below.
    C:\Windows\CTDCRES.DLL
    C:\Windows\System32\cttele32.dll
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\CTOSS2K.SYS
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\CTSFM2K.SYS
    C:\Program Files\Creative (delete whole folder)
    C:\Windows\CTXFIRES.DLL
    C:\Windows\CTPRES.DLL
    C:\Windows\Updreg.EXE
    To remove .CDF files, type the following two commands in the Command Prompt
    (requires Admin Privileges or UAC disabled)
    takeown /f C:\Windows\*.CDF
    and
    cacls C:\Windows\*.CDF /G User:F
    User is your username, which must have admin rights. Answer Y (yes) to
    confirm the changes.
    Now close the prompt, open Windows Explorer and delete the files with
    filenames like these:

    {00000005-00000000-00000002-00001102-00000004-20021102}.BAK
    {00000005-00000000-00000002-00001102-00000004-20021102}.CDF
    After all of this, restart and begin to install your software. I noticed
    that after using this method, my Creative driver packages would install much
    quicker. It even solved a few little bugs I was having. Bonus.
    "

    I am gonna give it a try...

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  9. The audio system is now completely dead, the 0006 update did not install
    still reporting that a newer driver was installed.

    Windows also says drivers missing or corrupted when I check audio devices.

    Fortunately windows help has some advice open device manager and remove the
    x-fi audio device and add it again...

    I am gonna try this now to see if this helps...

    I think this will probably make windows reinstall it's basic creative
    drivers which apperently are part of windows itself.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  10. Nope that didn't help... not sure what the hell I deleted but it were 5
    ct*.sys drivers in system32\drivers which seemed to be from Creative...

    Maybe it's time I put the windows xp x64 pro cd in it... maybe it has a
    repair option...

    Or perhaps trying a remove again, or perhaps installing the buggy drivers
    might do the trick but I don't think so...

    A websearch for these drivers might also turn up something...

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  11. Having no sound sux so I reinstalled latest driver 0008_0013 which causes
    the slow shutdown...

    The driver emulator thing was still crashing on startup.

    Creative needs to test their software on Windows XP Pro x64 edition since it
    has many issue's...

    Maybe they aware of it or maybe not...

    Anyway I am gonna give the auto updater a try and do a reboot later to see
    if slow shutdown is still a problem afterwards after
    all this screwing around.

    Hopefully it will not give blue screen of death... but I think it will
    probably do that as well if this driver was present all the time
    after all.. ?! What a mess.

    They need to make new cd which everything on that works on all supported
    systems... and not this patch hell.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  12. CREATIVE LABS TEST YOUR DRIVERS ON WINDOWS XP x64 PRO before you release
    them onto the internet.

    You could have saved me a lot of trouble by releasing NOTHING !

    Because right now I am back to ZERO.

    All of this software installation has been for NOTHING.

    The shutdown problem is UNACCEPTABLE.

    I shall now remove the audio driver AGAIN.

    And install from the ORIGINAL CD's.

    If that doesn't work to restore the audio drivers then I will remove
    everything AGAIN.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  13. A remarkable thing has happened.

    I ran the installation program of the original CD...

    and surprise surprise...

    When I clicked add it displayed a checkbox to indicate that the audio
    drivers were not yet installed ?!

    How strange...

    I removed those audio drivers because the web update said to do so ?!

    Apperently that ADVICE IS WRONG.

    The software emulator error has disappeared...

    The shutdown bug happens as follows:

    1. Start COH ONLINE

    2. Login

    3. Select Commander.

    4. Logoff exit.

    5. Shutdown windows.

    The shutdown bug won't happen unless a game is played.

    I am not sure if it's a COH only problem or general problem.

    Therefore I just started Quake 3 and exited.

    Now I am going to do a reboot to see if it shuts down slowly again...

    If not then I will test COH again.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  14. SHUTDOWN BUG REMAINS.

    It's definetly not related to COH ?!

    I HAVE NO TIME FOR THIS BULLSHIT !!!!!!!!!!!!

    IT SUCKS !!!!!!!!!!

    HOW DO I GET RID OF THIS CREATIVE STUFF ?!

    IT'S NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FULLY REMOVE IT !

    What a joke !

    Get some people from Microsoft to look at your drivers cause this suck more
    than they work !

    GJEZ.

    I have to go find some website now explaining how to remove all this junk
    via registy and what not...
    and even that doesn't seem to work.

    I will think hard if I ever want to deal with your shitty software ever
    again.

  19. I deinstalled everything and there is still sound coming from the speakers
    ?!

    Isn't that funny ?!?

    All that Creative Labs Software is just BLOATWARE.

    All I need is a driver which actually works and doesn't crash while
    gaming...

    And a nice volume control to change the volume and perhaps test the
    speakers.

    I only need driver + console or whatever it's called.

    Now I am going to install just the console from the original cd's

    because I am fed up with this stuff... it's bullshit.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  20. Ok,

    I am now done with this shitty software, but for the record I will this time
    record which audio driver version is being used...

    Not that it's very usefull because in the future it will probably be
    impossible to go back to it... at least via creative labs software which is
    just retarded and doesn't allow falling back on old versions.

    Perhaps window's driver rollback option might work... but windows is just as
    shit and advertises all kinds of functionality which ultimately don't work
    when you need it the most.

    For the record the driver version after all this fucking and messing around
    is somehow:

    Control Panel, Audio etc:

    Creative SB X-Fi, PCI Slot 5 (PCI Bus 4, device 8, function 0)

    Driver Date: 6/3/2009
    Driver Version: 6.0.1.1373
    Digital Signer: Not digitally signed.

    Driver details, not gonna retype that crap, implement some copy paste will
    ya, retards ?!

    100 files or so.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.
