    Frequent dxgmms2.sys related BSOD's

    Since the last windows update I get frequent crashes with the above source referenced.
    My Nvidia graphic driver is overwritten by a seemingly unstable one by windows update. My only resolution to cure the problem is to roll back to an older version, whereby I can play uninterrupted indefinitely, only to see the crashes reappear when update automatically overwrites again with it's own 'unsolicited' version.
    Is my only recourse to upgrade to Pro to regain some control or wait for MS to update their bugged driver?

    System>advanced system properties>hardware>device installation settings>check no .....etc.>check never install driver software from updates>save.

    Already selected as 'No' and does not work.
    The description refers to apps associated with devices...not device drivers.

    I have tried the wushowhide application a couple of times previously and update appears to just ignore it.

    You can try using DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) It's safe and has been used by many to uninstall Nvidia drivers and prevent windows from overwriting them. It can be found here
