    I can't disable windows update driver installation


    I upgraded to 10 again without doing anything I usually do before hand. I went to disable the option to not let windows update install drivers and theres no option. I went to advanced system settings, hardware, then device installation settings and theres only 2 options, yes (recommended) and no (your device might not work as expected) What is going on now?

    This setting alone is not enough. You must hide the unwanted drivers updates, so they will not install. Of course, before you can hide them you must first install the manufacturer's drivers. You cannot hide something already installed.

    Sorry, I'm not following you. I have to install the drivers that windows update installs before I can hide it? Why don't I get the options I used to when going into device installation settings?

    Hello Tim,

    In addition, you can also turn off automatic device driver installation.

    To be able to hide the updates you must first replace the driver with the official driver from manufacturer. Then the utility (see link on previous post) will find the update again and show you on a list of updates. Then you can choose to hide it (disabled it). If the update is already installed, the utility won't find anything new and you won't get that on the list.

    Unfortunately, despite of the setting, Windows Update will reinstall any driver updates unless you hide them (see my previous posts). I tried.

    I went to the link you gave me and step 5 is what I originally did, but once I select no, no other options pop up like it should. Which is why I made this thread in the first place.

    Update: so I'm assuming I have windows 10 insider preview build 10565 since the options that are supposed to pop up aren't. **?!

    Update 2: After I replied with the first update, I did the windows update which installed some security update, did a couple more things then restarted. The *** computer locked up during the restart process again! the one problem I've had each time I've upgraded to 10! That's the last straw, I'm done with this ***
