    Yes, that's the point of the workaround, it only affects device drivers.
    i did the workaround and i still get this;

    Updates are available.

    • Synaptics driver update for Synaptics SMBus TouchPad


    Updates will be automatically installed when you aren't using your PC, or you can install them now if you want.

    I managed to installed the Intel & Nvidia graphics drivers. but on restart after testsign off the BAD Drivers came again . Now The drives are listed with Exclamation mark and graphics are bad

    Yes, I had this issue too after I made the video. The solution to that is to install the modded driver again after Windows Update installs the bad drivers. If you let windows update do what it wants to do, then install the modded drivers, everything works and it doesn't try again. See this post I just made for more info
    Glad this helped you.

    David I'm sorry I must of over looked your post somehow between Eight & Tem forums. To get there go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System> choose Advanced system settings>Hardware tab>Device installation settings
    Hi Cliff S,

    Just reporting back on this - it doesn't seem to work I'm afraid.

    I switched it to 'No' and 'Never' (and unticked the last checkbox) but Windows Update is still attempting to install drivers.

    @Wenda I think you gave an excellent review based on what you found and what you want in an OS. And if you don't like the features in Win10 then by all means point them out and stick with a version of Windows that meets you needs.
    The sad thing is that I really wanted to like it...

    And you think that will be the case in 10 years?
    I'll wager 7 will have more users than Ten does this time next year. A few users of 7 will go as they have to have the latest, some of the 8.1 users will go to Ten. Anyone with a tablet should. If you are a hard core desktop user stay on 7 is my recommendation. Now if we get Control Panel back with 1024 color icons, full blown Aero (I have good graphics cards in my PC's let me use them) get rid of BING and all the other crap by being able to uninstall what I don't want then I might too even though they have killed Media Center. OK off to Microsoft forums to bleat about that.

    Right I seem to be making progress now.

    Windows still insists on installing drivers but to be fair these particular ones haven't crashed yet. Firefox still crashes on the user account I set up initially, but on a second account it seems to be working better.

    I did exactly the same when I first installed 10074 though, and that time FF crashed for both accounts (one local, one FS). I'm wondering if the difference is that something was wrong when the initial user was created, but some crucial updates was installed before I added the second account, especially as many parts of the Settings app seemed to crash with the original user. First time round I created a bunch of accounts early on.

    So maybe next time I'll setup with a sacrificial user account that can get updates and then I'll set up the accounts I actually want and kill off the initial one.

    I've also got Office 2016 Preview going and it seems on a brief look to work OK.

    Hi guys; anybody knows what's going on with the update system ! i did this post to reply for the workaround issue with drivers showing at the updates and nothing updates?

    Also after i do this workaround settings;


    Go to run and type gpedit.msc
    click on Computer Configuration
    click on Administrative templates
    click on System
    click on Device Installation
    click on Device Installation Restrictions
    Enabled Prevent Installation of Devices not described by other policy settings
    Uninstalled driver ticked delete driver.
    Also go to Uninstall program to remove Synaptic software.
    Reboot
    Disable or Unconfigure Device Installation Restrictions
    And install Synaptics driver ver 16.2

    i get this;see pic;

    I am in a area that I know next to nothing about, but have seen this "sfc /scannow" in posts before. I ran it and have generated 2 logs in the CBS folder. The report said I had errors and it has fixed them? I viewed the log, not sure what to look for, but am just curious thats all..
    Me too Meebers. It said I had corrupted files on a clean install that I've only installed Office 365 on and that is only a few days old. O K

    Like you, the log(s) mean next to nothing to me; guess I'll just have to trust it, although I'm not so sure it knows what it's talking about.
