    NVIDIA display drivers deleted by Windows 10 update - how to prevent

    Windows 10 update keeps deleting NVIDIA display drivers - how to prevent ?

    After each Windows 10 update:
    1) get the message "your display drivers have been updated, restart"
    2) after restart only one display is showing content - the other one is blank
    3) have poor, miserable relolution
    4) install NVIDIA display drivers
    5) restart
    6) re-organize my desktop in two monitors
    7) too often Windows 10 interrups NVIDIA display driver installation
    8) sometimes Windows 10 does allow NVIDIA install program to continue
    9) each time spend 3-4 hours extra time to get back with the working system

    a) I will NEVER want MS display drivers because I have the ones from NVIDIA designed by NVIDIA
    b) trying to deny display driver update by Windows 10 has no effect
    c) saving the working system and recovering ti does not help because MS does not include device drivers
    to be part of working system
    d) new update in correct and guaranteed to embed MS trial to force user to use MS drivers instead of NVIDIA

    Is there any WORKING methods to have NVIDIA display drivers serving two monitors ?

    The drivers that Windows 10 install are Nvidia drivers....they just aren't the absolute latest, since Nvidia updates often. On my tower, I don't see the same issues as you, but my solution is to run the Nvidia GeForce Experience tool. It will alert you to new driver versions and download them for you. There's no need or reason to spend hours arranging a desktop. If Windows Update is installing drivers, it means it found something newer than you had originally.

    In my case Windows 10 replaces NVIDIA drivers with Microsoft Plug&Play monitor drivers which support only one monitor with poor resolution.

    I get my working system back by manually installing the NVIDIA driver which supports both GPU cards and handles both monitors as well as run GPU computing.

    The latest drivers from NVIDIA I'm not always able to have because the latest NVIDIA display driver may not properly
    support my configuration for which I have the working NVIDIA driver managing my configuration and having the features I need for this configuration.

    To have the latest NVIDIA device drivers installed in some of my configurations would mean having the latest NVIDIA GPU cards
    inside those system which would be too expensive and overkill.

    Goog tip in anycase, thanks!
