Windows 10 1809 annoying audio bug on Radeon Adrenaline 18.10.1

On Windows 10 1809, installing the 18-10 monthly security update (KB4464330) and then installing the latest Radeon Adrenaline 18.10.1 drivers causes Windows to spew a message about needing to restart from installing a driver for High Definition Audio Bus every time the machine freshly boots or is rebooted.

I’ve been getting this issue since the Windows 10 18-10 security update landed, but only today when the thing had annoyed me enough that I did a reformat/reinstall and found the error starts popping up after I install the Radeon Adrenaline 18.10.1 drivers. Since i have not installed the drivers for other sound devices yet (Realtek Onboard, SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium PCIe, Blackmagic Intensity Pro or Steelseries Siberia headphones), but installed Windows from a USB stick with the 18-10 update slipstreamed in (done to test if the update overwritten a AMD file and caused this error), i have reason to believe that the driver (specifically, the HDMI audio driver) has a bug.

Can someone at AMD please look into this?

Well, the reason I upgraded to 18.10.1 in the first place was because 18.9.3 was crashing very frequently on Windows 10 1809. Maybe it‘s just me, however I don’t recall the error ever appearing before KB4464330 dropped. Hence the suspicion that the error is caused by a bug in the Radeon drivers that lay dormant until said update dropped and changed something that caused the error to start happening.

I had the same problem.

A lot of instalation events of high definition audio bus

Downgrading to 18.5.1 seems to be the working solution.

Well, the problem is, Subnautica seems to not like 18.5.1 if the GPU is a Vega 64. Will not launch.

I am unable to do this on my Windows 10 Lenovo laptop. Please provide me some steps to do on the same Windows 10.

Did you tried with another version? Like 18.3.3?

I read somewhere that AMD moved the HD-audio driver location in 18.10 hence this annoying bug once you have installed 18.10

Problem is even after going back to an older Adrenalin driver the problem persists.

Well, live with that until it's fixed...

Yeah, still getting the error even after downgrading the HDMI audio driver to the 18.5.1 one. Frustrating. Wondering if I should upgrade it back.

Edit: I see that 18.10.2 just got released. But the Fixed issues section in the Release Notes does not mention this error being fixed :\
