Is see this release includes a driver update which re-installs and re-enables this virtual driver, stomping all over your audio devices (again). This driver serves no purpose for Rift users and the installer behaviour is a nuisance.

I believe this is a Quest-related driver.  Does not seem to adversely effect my Rift cv1 but I guess if you have a problem with it you can just go into your win10 sound settings sound control panel and disable it.

Edit; also, I use the audio switching option with Oculus Tray Tool (OTT) so maybe this helps as well.

yeah just disable it if you have a rift s it tried to take over all audio output everytime i fired up my pc and had to manually keep changing it to speakers/rift s/logitech G933's, how the software sees the rift s as a quest is beyond me

Yeah, that is what I do. It is just annoying that I have to do it after each driver update. I also have to fix up my Sound Blaster X-Fi Software Suite which gets messed up due to the default device change.
