Update 12.0.0.241.268 knock out anyone else's audio on their desktop?

After launching Oculus, went through a required software update to 12.0.0.241.268 and I thought it was odd when I didn't hear audio.
I unplugged, rebooted, and just tested playing an audio file like normal through speakings, nothing.  No sound at all.
Anyone else experience this?  What's the easiest way to rollback the Oculus update so I can test if this is indeed the cause?

Thank you very much Helcion. Yep, I see it changed my default sound device. Once i set it back to my realtek audio speakers, audio began functioning normally.  Thanks again!

the update added a new audio device (presumably needed for link but useless for rift S) that is not working/has no function and made it the standard device. just disable it and select the one you want to use.

the device is is named oculus virtual audio device.

Same issue here. Since the update I do have a useless (not working) sound device installed called "Oculus Virtual Audio Device". Wouldn't be an issue if not sometimes after starting OculusHome my microphone is no longer working and I have to fidel around with the sound-settings afterwards.

Would be helpful to know what this sound devices are used for and whether OculusRift User can disable this devices using the sound control panel.
