JC BOY PHILS. its a file in the by C-Media. To remove that error try this: open regedit- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE- SOFTWARE- Microsoft- Windows- CurrentVersion- Run. Then delete CM Audio. It didnt hurt my sound, it didnt hurt my computer. But I aint certain it wont hurt yours. I just thought it might help.

G file installs as part of an MS Windows hardware driver automatic update, which update often doesn't work with your hardware (loss of sound), and when you roll back the update, the call on startup to mcicfg.dll isn' t removed from registry. Follow instructions from JCBoy Phils in earlier post to remove it ("To remove that error try this: open regedit- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE- SOFTWARE- Microsoft- Windows- CurrentVersion- Run. Then delete CM Audio key", Since it only removes this key, it's safe - but you can export the key before deleting it, just in case you want to re-install for any reason!)
jay @microsoft.com hi im a tect from microsoft (stop that!.lol) ok just run
Techmedia Dave I think that 2 of the 5 users who think they have a problem should be talking to 5 of the 3 users who think they haven't had a problem or maybe the same problem that the 2 users had or haven't had, this should probably cure the problem, or maybe not, thats the real problem.

UncleGadget Scews up your sound card. Cannot be uninstalled. Get hardware updates from manufacturers NOT MS! MS NVidia updates disable your NVidia video card too!

Nothing. But I was getting the same error message. I deleted the CM Audio key and the error message disappeared. My audio is just fine.
