    MS Realtek driver agony - please help


    MS Update installed a Realtek driver that really does not agree with my system. I'm fine with the MS 5 High Def version.

    Ever time I g to device manager and programs & features and delete it and spec the MS generic version I'm good for about a minute then the Realtek gets installed. Even after I delete the folder in programs. I am totally stumped here as this version MS is pushing out is really having problems and I cant make it go away.

    I have gone to advanced settings and set it to prevent downloading ANY driver updates at all. It keeps coming back.

    I've tried just about everything I can find on Google. I'd really appreciate some help on this. It began happening after this past Tuesdays update. I had other issues (now solved) with that update

    The following steps worked for me...


    First uninstall the faulty driver, but do not restart your machine until you do the following:

    Type"Device Installation Settings" in your Windows search box. A result named "Change device installation settings" should show up.

    •Choose No

    Once that's done, you have to go into the Windows Update Settings and change it to "Notify Schedule a restart".

    Now go ahead and do a restart.

    At this point, the driver won't automatically install, but will be listed in Windows Update. Microsoft expects you to install it anyways. What you need to do is hide it from Windows Update. Download the "Show or hideupdates" troubleshooter package

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3073930

    That tool will then let you see what's in Windows update and you can then hide it from Windows update.

    So far so good. I was stuck in a cycle of deleting it and then update would reinstall. Thank You.
