delete service cause driver uninstalled

P: n/a
Hi,

I install a filter driver through INF file to a 3rd party audio device (with
driver). The filter driver works well on the 3rd party driver. However upon
uninstallation of the filter driver, it will eventually cause the audio
driver get uninstalled as well.

Here are the steps to uninstall the filter driver:
1. Disable the target audio device.
2. Delete the filter name from "Upperfilters" key of the audio device in
registry.
3. Enable the target audio device.
4. Run "sc stop <filter-name>" and "sc delete <filter-name>".

The problem happens when I try to delete the filter driver from the service
database at step 4. Straight after the service removal, the audio driver
indicates that it will be uninstalled in next system reboot.

1. What exactly causes the audio driver to be uninstalled?
2. How could I delete the filter service and yet won't have audio driver
uninstalled?

Thanks in advance.
