Disable driver updates through Windows update not working with 1903

    Disable driver updates through Windows update not working with 1903


    So I upgraded to 1903...

    and now the disable driver force is not working anymore with 1903, Windows 10 will download Intel DPTF drivers over and over again after each Windows reboot and put it into C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution

    None of the options described here are working anymore: Enable or Disable Driver Updates in Windows Update in Windows 10

    I applied them all, again, option two:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UX\SettingsExcludeWUDriversInQualityUpdate DWORD0 = On1 = Off

    option three via group policy editor, yes I have Pro, and option four:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdateExcludeWUDriversInQualityUpdate DWORD(delete) = Enable1 = Disable

    Removed the Intel DPTF drivers with "remove driver" option, rebooted, but Windows 10 still will donwload them again and place them into C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution

    Clearing the SoftwareDistribution folder ( How to clear the 'SoftwareDistribution' folder on Windows 10 and make updates happen again | Windows Central ) does not help anything.

    Even the new feature of pausing updates for 7 days doesnt help here.

    JUST GREAT! Thank you MS

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Well , Im using an option in gpedit , in which you can select a driver from getting updated by MS , Im using this option for my nVidia , you have to insert the ID from the driver and it will not get any updates from MS .
    A second option is to switch on ; dont search for drivers in WU .
    Its all in gpedit ............
    Works perfectly , Im using nVidia from March 2019 , and MS did not updated it when upgrading from 1809 to 1903.
    Keep in mind ; when you want to update the driver manual , by yourself , you have to switch off this option in gpedit , or you can not update the driver.............!

    All force options are set to off, including gpedit https://i.imgur.com/gwhZdjV.png . Windows will download next to Windows update the driver after first 30 seconds of reboot. It worked normally in 1803.

    I have set the global force off: https://i.imgur.com/gwhZdjV.png which worked fine with 1803.

    Where is the option for specific driver id force off in gpedit? Can you include a screencap, and how would I know the id for the DPTF package?

    Search in "Installing devices "........sorry , Im on a Dutch Win10 ,its difficult to explain in English .
    Go to ; 'Installing of devices with one of these IDs cancel " , these options are all together.
    If you have found the option , go to your drivers and look for the ID of the driver(s) , you want to exclude from updating.
    Insert the ID-Number in gpedit and switch on ............done !


    " Should that work? "................yep , ID-numbers ! Better take the first ID-number ,above in the list .
    For security you can insert some more ID-numbers .

    Thank you. That seems to help so far: https://i.imgur.com/tHrQm0v.png

    Windows still downloads the drivers though https://i.imgur.com/yzg1wim.png

    This was not the case with 1803. This seems like a bug or MS changed the way Windows handles driver updates... Is there maybe a new flag you need to set with 1903? Or they even removed the option for it? Maybe accidentally... because of the change they made to the Update system for 1903.

    might want to use wushowhide.diagcab from Microsoft support KB article 3073930 to hide/block any unwanted driver updates, which should work even in 1903

    No (-: It does not work for the Intel DPTF driver package. This is a bug glitch or wanted behavior it seems by MS, to exclude some packages which still be installed.
