    Windows Update / automatic driver updates?


    I have potentially four machines that are eligible for a Windows 10 upgrade, based on most of what I read I was hopeful that there would be few if any problems until I read that Windows would now automatically install driver updates along with operating system updates. All four systems have either Windows 7 Pro / Ultimate or Windows 8 Pro.

    I would prefer for Windows to not replace a manufacturers driver with a Microsoft one, is there a way to prevent driver updates from being installed without approval from me?

    Thanks!
