    Nvidia Driver Fails to Update


    Hello all,

    I'm having an issue with windows update. I have an Nvidia driver for my GTX275 that keeps failing to update. This has stopped all other pending updates. I have since disabled Windows from getting driver updates but I can't figure out how to get Windows to ignore the current Nvidia driver update that's trying to install. This is of course still preventing me from getting updates currently.

    I wanted to keep my post short and sweet, if more info is need please feel free to ask. Also I already have a decoded update log ready to go if anyone wants to see it.

    Thank you

    Hi,
    Microsoft has released a tool that hides an update in case if it fails or giving you troubles.
    Download it here:

    It's better to do any NVidia or GeForce updates directly through them rather than let Windows do it, they constantly offer the wrong update package for a particular Graphics card, and you end up having to roll back the update anyway. Usually there is an app called GEforce Experience that detects the new updates for you and allows you to install them at your leisure.
