New Creative SB Drivers

I downloaded the new drivers from Creative today. When I got them installed, after I restarted, I noticed that all 4 of my fps2000 speakers were working!

I figured i'd update windows too, so when I ran windows update, it stated theres new drivers (again) for my card. I installed those, and then the 4 speakers didn't work anymore. WHat's the deal? Why would MS run an update that was older then the newer drivers from creative?

Why are the creative drivers not logo cert?

Thanks!

It is as simple as this:
If you go for the creative drivers use them, you will still get windows update telling you that there are new drivers, and that's because thats the drivers provided by Microsoft (it doesn't recognize the creative ones). I would stick to the creative ones bcause of all the extras you get (eax ++)...
