    A Windows 10 update just deleted my sound drivers and I can't reinstall them. In device manager Detection Verification and Intel High Definition Audio can't be updated and have error code 28. I also think my Realtek HD Audio driver was deleted too. Oddly it also deleted my codec pack for Media Player Classic. Does anyone know how to fix this as I can't record any tv shows now.

    what motherboard model ? Try to download driver from motherboard manufacturer website.

    You can uninstall that automatically installed driver via control panel. I mean apps and features >> programs and features. Like this -

    Yes it's working fine now, the Windows 10 update seems to have used an extra 10 gb from my C: drive.

    Try this - Right click on C Drive >> Properties >> Disk Cleanup >> Clean up system files >> Check all >> OK

    Tell me whether you find difference in free space or not.
    btw I prefer Clean installation instead of upgrade.

    It's okay now as Windows just deleted the old version of Windows 10.
