    Windows 9 (aka Windows 10)

    I'm running Win10 1709, and when I select "No (your device might not work as expected)", the only thing that gets changed is PreventDeviceMetadataFromNetwork, which gets changed from 0 to 1, and is under:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Device Metadata

    As another user mentioned, SearchOrderConfig doesn't get changed. So, these steps are incorrect and/or outdated.

    Also, "Never_install_driver_software_from_Windows_Update.reg" sets SearchOrderConfig to 0, but my SearchOrderConfig was already set to 0, and WU updates drivers whenever it feels like it.
