    "Manually Install is quicker then clicking ok 40 times."

    Cons

    Summary

    The bottom line is this. If the driver installation program itself is giving you problems then it would just be simpler and faster to do a manual install. Follow these steps if you are logged in with administrator rights.

    Right click on computer and go into device manager. From there find the drop down tree for your sound controller. Expand the tree and right click on your sound device and select update driver. Select search my computer. Go into your drivers folder and find and select the appropriate folder I.E. "select Vista for Vista and 7 32 bit or select Vista64 if you have a 64bit version of either operation system. If you want to see if your operating system is 64 bit or not go into system properties and view it. Which can be seen by right clicking on computer and selecting properties. Your summary should come up along with some other things.

    Not being lazy and letting a simple application who's only job is to copy the drivers and give you the stupid looking realtek gui, which frankly I prefer to go without. Hope this gave you all some insight.
