    I am trying to see if I need a Sound Blaster driver update or patch. I cannot locate
    [Windows Dir] \system32\drivers

    to find the files they suggest I locate before downloading.

    ctaud2k.sys
    ha10kx2k.sys
    Can someone please direct me?

    Funny, cause that's exactly where they are. My computer>"C" (or whatever your boot drive is)>Windows>System32>drivers. You may need to click on "show entire contents of folder" or something to make files show if you see this and a blank screen. You may also want to go to folder options in the control panel and enable viewing system and any other types of files which are hidden by default. There is no harm in unhiding them if you don't tamper with them.

    Thank you. I know it was a stupid question but because when I went there and could find neither of these two files I thought I was looking in the wrong place, possibly. The Sound Blaster instructions do not say if you find them but when you find them click to find version number.
