Solved How to disable IDT Audio Control Panel?

November 18, 2013 at 08:37:29
Specs: Windows XP
I just replaced my XP's hard drive with a new one purchased from my computer's manufacture. It contains my op system plus a lot of other SW that I don't want or need. One is "IDT Audio Panel" I don't need or want it popping up every time I boot my system. How do I get rid of it or at least disable it? It doesn't appear in "Startup". Any help?

Found a website that said:
"Did you uncheck "Allow reconfiguration Pop-Ups" in IDT Audio Control Panel Advanced menu?"

If you can find such a thing it might shut it up.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If your computer model a secret? So your vendor shipped a hard drive that already had all the files on it?

No, it was built and sold on eBay by a small company in Dallas. The HD I wanted, and received, was loaded with the op system, etc. so I could get the machine back in operation. I did get it to boot and operate except for having this one, as stated, problem

Type msconfig in the Run box and see if "IDT Audio Panel" appears in startup. If so uncheck it. Strictly this is supposed to be for diagnostics but many folk are running fine with various things disabled in msconfig.

Another place to look is in "Services". There might be a service which can be stopped and then set to Disabled.

Thanks Derek for the suggestions but I couldn't find it anywhere. This is a computer that my wife uses for email, photos and a couple of web sites so I'm trying to make it as simple for her as possible. No big deal but I'd like to get rid of it. Thanks again. I'm going to keep looking!

There might be something under that heading in "Device Manager" which can be disabled. If it is showing an error it could cure the issue if it is deleted there, as it shouldn't find the hardware on restart. Be careful you don't delete the audio arrangements you are using (sorry I'm sure you know that LOL).

Thanks for the warning but you're a little late. Already did that and had to perform a second restore job to correct that mistake. I've sent a note to the dealer I got the computer from to see if they can suggest a solution. I'll post the answer here, if I get one.

That was quick! Here is the answer from the dealer: "That's the audio driver. If you don't want audio, you can uninstall it." Duh! So it's either seeing that screen every time the computer is booted or have a terminally muted machine. I guess we'll just have to live with it. --==THE END==--

Derek, you're a genius! On the screen when it comes up is a "gear" icon. Don't know why I didn't see it before. Clicked on the icon and found a "Allow Reconfiguration Pop Up" item. Unchecked it and the problem is solved! Thanks a lot. My only question now is why didn't I see it to begin with. And I guess my dealer needs to go back to school. Thanks again!
