    can i disable a single auto update in windows 10 preview?


    Ok after i keep fixing my switchable graphics microsoft keep coming along and messing it up again by auto updating with wrong drivers!

    in the update list i see the wrong AMD video driver and i cant stop it from installing

    so ultimately i had to disable automatic drivers update in system settings. but that means that i cant get any updates ether. can i disable or hide one update like before in windows 8.1 % down?
    i see that the non metro windows update windows is gone now...

    Try 'Roll Back Driver' in Device Manager and see if it sticks.

    I read that in a future build MS is going to allow us to choose what driver updates to install.

    Hello Mario,

    If you like, you could use the tutorial below to add Windows Update back to the Control Panel.

    Windows Update - Add or Remove from Control Panel in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Afterwards, you can open Windows Update, and hide this update to no longer have it available to install until the next new release.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi there

    Thanks -- This stopped my Sound drivers from getting updated and after update failed to work. Good workaround -- that's always a problem when stuff is made TOO simple - it gets a nightmare to fix if something doesn't work properly.

    Cheers

    You can no longer reinstate the old windows update in 10041 - the old workaround is redundant.
