  3. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} and find the UpperFilters value.

  4. Right-click on the item, choose the "Delete" option and click "Yes" to delete the item.

  5. Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the Registry and delete it too.

  6. Close the Registry Editor.

  7. Restart your computer.

Note:

After removing Upperfilters and Lowerfilters and in case of the lost functionality of a particular program, (e.g. CD recording software), you will have to reinstall that program. If the problem recurs, please consult with the software vendor for assistance.
