    Stop specific driver update Windows 10

    Hi, I just updated my laptop to Windows 10 and I'm having an issue with the driver for my fingerprint reader. Windows 10 keeps installing the latest driver software for it rather then the version that I manually installed. The problem with the newest driver is that it disables finger print sign in and windows hello. I had the same issue in Windows 8 but I was able to just go into Windows Update and disable the update, with Windows 10 I can't do that.

    Does anyone know how I can disable driver updates for just my integrated finger print reader?

    Here is a good article that somebody put together. You should be able to do it with this (especially see the last section):
