    Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation?

    Hello,

    This one has me stumped, and I've been all over the net trying to track down
    a solution. I sure hope someone here can help.

    In Windows Vista Ultimate, I am getting a notice in my Performance section
    that says "Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation" (audiodg.exe) is causing
    Windows to start slowly.

    It says it is taking...get this...37.4 seconds just to start this process.
    Any ideas on how I can fix this?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Hmm...I've got the latest and greatest audio drivers...and this is a Windows
    file anyway.....seems to be a Microsoft issue.

    What is your audio adapter?

    This is the first time I have read in here of this particular problem.

    It most likely is a DRIVER issue since the audio drivers would interact with
    that "Windows file" and is not a "Microsoft issue".

    Hmmm, I've got an X-Fi too. But I do not have this problem.

    I would suggest uninstalling your present X-Fi in Device Manager, being sure to
    check the box to delete driver files, uninstalling the Creative Audio Console
    in Control Panel > Programs and Features, rebooting and re-installing the latest
    X-Fi drivers from Creative's site.
