    Another option to tend with problematic driver updates as mentioned earlier would be a quick trip to the manufacturer(s)'s support site(s) to look things up. If the WU downloads and installs the wrong driver the next stop is the Device Manager to manually remove the incorrect with a fast right click on the item(s) there and then followup by running the correct update(s)'s installer(s).

    It's not as complicated as some may think. The guide here shows how to temporarily disable the Group policy or registry entry that more or less controls the WU actions as far as automatically looking things up and getting it wrong at times. The "gpedit.msc" as well as reg mod combined will simply insure nothing wanted goes on over the long term when both options are deployed.

    The most common type of mix up as far as the 10 installer going for the wrong driver set would be for those older hardwares that won't be seeing any active 10 support while might be seeing a 3rd party type web update tool look up the correct drivers for use on 10. The discontinued sound card model here on the oldest build ran into that.

    There are a couple Windows 10 Home machines on my network (leftover from the previous "administration" that I haven't replaced yet). I'm having the NVidia driver issue. I've added the registry key and made sure it's set to "1". The machine I'm testing on is running build 14393.82 and it still updates the drivers. I have the correct driver (well the one that works...whether MS sees it as the correct driver or not) so I just install it when this happens and all is well. But the incorrect driver gets installed again once a day or so. Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Have you tried the rollback? In AU, it should be permanent, well until the newer driver gets released.
    The other option is to hide the driver. Use Windows Updates - Hide or Show in Windows 10 or WUMT.

    Hello Chris, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Just to verify, is this driver being updated via Windows Update or NVIDIA's GeForce Experience automatic updates?

    I've tried hiding it also to no avail.

    Thank you very much. Yes it is being updated through Windows Update.

    Chris,

    You might also turn off automatic device driver installation to see if that may help.

    I believe I tried that during the first go round I had with this machine and it didn't help. I've since "refreshed" it and started again so I'll give it a try. I disabled that setting but it already had the updates downloaded and ready to be installed. I'll install them, install the old driver so it's working again and keep an eye on it. I'll get back to you all once I have something to report. Thanks for the help.

    You might simply end up needing to replace the 383 build itself in favor of the Redstone 1 update or latest 14905 Insider build. Since you are running the now older build the WU is looking to update everything to satisfy that need. Tweaks to disable the WU are mainly geared for the RTM builds(that includes original 10240, Threshold 2 update, Redstone 1 update) over the long term while each Insider developer build looks to be totally replaced in a much shorter period of time.

    That has been my experience. Do not include drivers with Windows Updates keeps most drivers out of WU, but it cannot be relied upon to keep all drivers out of WU. Hopefully they will fix this at some point.
