I have the latest audio (and the rest) drivers as well as latest windows 11 updates.

This issue is not new and I also upgraded to 11 few months ago already. As far as I remember when on windows 10 there was a problem with audio as well. Sound itself was fine, but somehow MS Teams conflicted with internal audio which cause Teams to freeze every now and then. Since I am using jabra speaker anyway, I simply disabled the internal audio back then and the problem was gone. Teams also worked fine in Windows 11 even with internal audio enabled, but a while ago I started to notice the high CPU usage by this realtek audio process.
So the realtek audio driver defenitely need some work or so it seems to me.

I had a chat with MS support, which was mostly useless as they always do "lucky troubleshooting" first, asking to reset windows like I have all time in the world reconfiguring everything and of course - no guarantee it would even help. But I also tried to ask what is that app and they only said it is "non essential windows component" and suggested that I can try and delete that file. I didn't delete it, but I first ended the SECOCL.exe process in the Task Manager and then stopped and disabled "Sound Research SECOMN Service".
I still don't know exactly what is that process, but at least it doesn't affect sound output, so killing it while waiting for support reply seems a working solution.
