Description:

Realtek Voice Manager, installed with the drivers for on-board Realtek HD audio codecs. On an ALC885 based test system it doesn't run after the drivers have been installed and the startup entry is then removed. Disabling it appears to have no ill effects but it's exact purpose is unknown - hence the "U" recommendation

Startup information:

Registry (Start → Run → regedit)

MSConfig (Start → Run → msconfig → Startup)

Windows Defender (Start → All Programs → Windows Defender → Tools → Software Explorer)

Log examples:
