    Windows 10

    Unable to prevent GPU driver install in Windows 10.

    Has anyone else seen this or experienced it? I have set "Device Installation Settings" No in the System Properties options.

    I've gone as far as removing the drivers with DDU from guru3d in safe mode as well. The GPU driver will still install one of two ways. The first is if I manually go to Windows Updates it will install if I check for updates. Or the driver will auto install at some point at random.

    I would like to prevent both of these actions and the Device Installation Settings seem to have no effect. I also want to avoid setting any group policy's as I have Windows 10 home.

    Any ideas? Currently using the Windows 10 Creator update on a fresh install done with the USB media creator tool today.
