    Windows 10 updates my Video Display Adapter incorrectly

    Windows updates my Video Display Adapter incorrectly. New driver works faulty. I can prevent it installing. I'm using Windows 10. Any help?

    Hi, there have been a couple of instances of video driver updates reported; as you say, it's possible to stop the later driver update occurring.
    I can prevent it installing.
    That's covered in the first Tutorial (below).

    If you are happy with the older driver, stay with it.

    However, note that major build upgrades mean you will be provided with a new set of drivers. In a recent case, the user had to save the driver used on the previous build, and reinstall that in place of the newer driver after upgrading.

    Hide or Show Windows Updates in Windows 10 Windows Update Activation Tutorials
    Backup and Restore Device Drivers in Windows 10 Hardware Drivers Tutorials

    You may wish to use the second of those to save your working driver before the major build upgrade coming in the next few weeks.
