Windows 10: Microsoft keeps downgrading my video drivers

    Microsoft keeps downgrading my video drivers


    I am very annoyed now! it has been going on for about 3 months now.
    I have AMD Beta Drivers installed and every time Microsoft thinks that they have a better driver for my computer and all they do is install the latest Normal Non beta drivers! Very frustrating! i don't want Microsoft touching my Video Card Drivers! and Windows 10 Pro is missing the option to Hide updates.
    I cant find a way to keep my drivers. the only way i can possible think of is to spoof my beta drivers date to like 2099 or something.

    Need to email AMD and send feedback to Microsoft. The Email will inform AMD and maybe they'll pressure Microsoft.

    If you write well, you could post a prewritten Email for other users here, and the address.

    Mystere has mentioned that it could be (for the preview only) that the user wish to not download drivers is ignored.Click image for larger version.

    Like I've had Win10 set to download updates over metered connections, but it refuses to, and I found out from Microsoft it's only for the preview.

    but i heard that windows 10 Pro users can stop updates
    What I read recently is that Pro users have the option to DEFER updates -- but not indefinitely. So basically, even Pro users can't prevent updates.
