I need some help since i cant figure out how to fix this. I'm basically trying to start over again to reinstall the creative application software (surround mixer, speaker settings all that stuff). I go to add/remove removing different Creative apps until i get to Sound Blaster Audigy 2 which starts the uninstall but gives me an error at 65%. Theres nothing else i can do so i delete the creative folder under program files, and under device manage i right-click my audigy 2 and select uninstall. I then reboot into safe mode and run Driver Cleaner to clean up after creative drivers. I then boot back into windows, obviously my sound card gets redected, i pop in the CD and select automatic settings and XP recognises the Audigy2. I then run the CD to run the setup but i'm faced with the screen repair, modify and remove since the setup seems to think Creative stuff is still installed. Whichever option i choose the setups fail at 65% saying that cant find the subscriber or something. So i end up having working drivers but no software. How do i go about making sure everything is removed properly so i can do a clean install and hopefully get the software back? Also over the period of today i've managed to get the installer to do a clean install but it always stops and gets stuck on the 100% where it says "updating direct x" i have to end task on the program and i'm still without working software. I have my anti-virus and firewall down whilst doing all installing. Really need help here been trying to do this for like 6 hours today Off to bed now, hopefully i'll get some answers by morning.
