    Intel NIC Windows 10 drivers - Windows keeps overwriting w/MS drivers

    We recently updated our computers at the radio station I work at; we also transitioned to an audio over iP console system that utilizes software instead of physical sound cards for audio. This system (called LiveWire) uses a separate NIC card on each machine for the network.

    The manufacturer strongly recommended we use an Intel NIC card, which we did (model EXPI9301CTBLK). However, no matter what I do, I cannot get the Intel drivers installed. I can install them, but Windows immediately overwrites them with the generic Windows drivers.

    This is causing all sorts of problems with our real-time audio.

    Does anyone know how to install a NIC driver in Windows 10 and NOT have Windows overwrite the driver with the MS driver???

    The following tutorial might help prevent Windows from updating the drivers.

    For clarity, if you're running Windows version 1703, you'll need to follow the steps in Option 3 of the tutorial above. Be aware you're need to be running at least Pro.

    Good luck.
