    AVRack was installed with your audio drivers.
    It should be on your motherboard CD or downloadable
    from the manufacturers web site.

    AVRack is an application program that configures recording, playback, playlists, and sound equalizer options for Realtek graphics but is not needed for your sound to work. Deleting it should not completely disable your sound capabilities.

    I suggest as a first step before digging deeper, go to Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) then hit Enter. Realtek AC'97 audio should be shown under "Sound, video and game controllers", and there should be no yellow ? or ! marks. There should also be no yellow ? or ! unknown devices. What do you see?

    The wrong driver may be installed and that could be why its showing an error. Windows sometimes has a habit of installing the wrong driver for the integrated AC97 codecs found on many boards.

    Do you know the make and model of your system or your motherboard.

    SIW can help you identify your board: http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html
    Look under Hardware -> Motherboard -> Model and list whats there.

    AVRack does generally belong to Avance/Realtek drivers, but its not even included with the latest driver sets anyway.
