After Windows Update installs an update, existing audio devices are removed and cannot be added again. The taskbar audio icon shows a red "X" and says "No Audio Output Device is installed." The troubleshooters don't work, and reverting the update doesn't fix the problem either (the update fails to revert). Finally, this problem has now happened twice--on two different Windows installations on the same computer.
