    Then please see options in #2.

    Otherwise you will have to consider disabling Windows Update and taking manual control.
    E.g. using the 3rd party tool in Option 7 of
    Turn On or Off Device Driver Automatic Installation in Windows 10

    i've done the registry download option of your last suggestion in post #2, unsinstalled the drivers, put the old ones back on and reconnected to the internet. i've set GeForce Experience to not auto download too, so hopefully that's the last i'll hear of it!
    i'll report back.
    ta for the help as always!

    This looks very like a bug reported perhaps a year or more ago when no normal means would stop Nvidia updating.

    Not if you choose to take complete control of WU (disable it) using a 3rd party tool. Then only what you choose (using a selection box) is applied.

    Example of one of these:

    Tutorials available.
    Enable or Disable Windows Update Automatic Updates in Windows 10
    Using CMD script and VBScript to control Windows Update

    These may suggest something else - you can search for more as I have:

    interestingly, this machine [w/ the GTX970] shows the same update back in december, and hasn't had a single issue of the driver settings not loading, or loading then resetting, on start-up. about the only major diff is this this 2004 and the other machine is 20H2.
