i have a GL63 8RD gaming notebook and the nahimic services causing major issues.
  • nahimicservice sometimes use 100% CPU
  • Jurassic Word Evolution wont start at all
  • Hitman (2016) hard freeze the laptop after 10-20 mins gameplay.
  • Battlefield V crash or give BSOD with the error 'kernel mode heap corruption' after 10-20 mins gameplay.
  • Sniper Elite 4 crash after 10-20 mins gameplay.
I thought these are due to some video driver issues or bad VGA. But after searching through the internet i found that nahimic can cause these kinda issues and suggested to uninstall all or kill all the nahimic related services. So i killed the services from task manager and tried the games !BOOM! all the games work without any issue. I had the nahimic windows store app installed so i uninstalled it and it removed 2 or 3 nahimic services with it. But there was one leftover nahimic service running and i noticed it was installed by official realtek drivers. Disabling that service permanently in system configurations is the solution i found. But what is the best way to completely remove nahimic without affecting realtek ?

realtek driver : ad_8443_UAD_WHQL_Nahimic_1060_2018_0511 _110148_6.0.1.8443_0xb3961888

do a clean install of windows 10
https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10

the realtek driver on msi site willl have some nahimic dll's in it

i think the realtek driver offerered by windows update or driverpack solution program might have realtek driver with no nahimic dll's in it

Thanks for your reply. i didnt try your suggestion coz i cant do a clean install. anyways, Hitman started to hard freeze today but didnt face any issue with Battlefield V. I forgot to mention that all the issues occurred only on Nvidia + Nahimic. Running games on intel graphics when i had nahimic didnt cause any issues. So nahimic for sure is responsible but there is something else. How can i find what is causing the hard freeze now ?

Thanks for the very descriptive response :) but i use this laptop for my office work and it takes a long time to setup everything after a fresh install. so i dont wanna do it unless its the actual solution. i need a way to find the issue so i can search for a solution...

there is also some 3rd party installers that more completely remove all the components of a program. maybe you could use that to help remove nahimic.

the realtek audio driver should also have its own audio manager without nahimic

I removed all nahimic and realtek stuff and my audio stopped working. trying to test audio in sound configurations end up saying 'unable to play test tone'. uninstalling realtek audio device from device manager installs a default realtek driver which works fine but after few seconds windows automatically update the driver or install a new driver which gives the same 'unable to play test tone' issue. out of options, i decided to install the official realtek drivers and manually disable nahimic service. but this time everything worked fine without disabling nahimic service. no game crashes. the only difference this time from the last is that i didnt install the nahimic3 microsoft store app. reading the app store reviews seems like some others had these issues with the app. this app link is provided in the official utilities page of this laptop so MSI shouldn't have provided something for a gaming laptop that cause games to crash.

P.S.
my realtek audio manager does not look like that. there is no desktop audio manager application installed with drivers. only thing they have provided is a microsoft store app which looks like the attached image

Cant get rid of nahimic completely coz its installed with realtek drivers. NOT installing nahimic mircosoft store app seems to be the solution.
