    How to block a driver update?

    Hey Guys

    This new way of forcing updates is poorly thought out.

    A new touchpad driver keeps installing, which then causes the touchpad to stop working until I plug in an external mouse and roll back the driver!

    Is there a way to block/ not install a certain update?

    Many Thanks

    Take a read through Windows Updates - Hide or Show in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums hopefully that will help you out.

    My computer keeps trying to install a driver for a printer that I've never owned!

    Some Epson thing. Never had an Epson printer in my life!
    Maybe it's found something on my work network that it feels the need to fix!

    I'll be among the first wave of buyers when someone releases a program that allows the user to control how, when or if any updates get installed on my computers.
