    Fed up with Windows Update installing nVidia driver automatically


    Hello guys,

    I'm asking this question here because I truly have no clue what to do anymore to solve this problem. After a clean install of Windows (without internet connection), as soon as I connect to the internet, Windows downloads and installs an old Nvidia driver with its unneeded software (like HD Audio) by itself.

    I want to prevent that and here is what I tried before connecting the Ethernet cable:
    1. Go to Windows Update group policy (see picture below), disabling 3, enabling 2 and configuring 1 to let Windows notify me before downloading and install any updates.

    2. Setting the following option:

    3. After those options I reboot, connect to the internet and immediately use the Hide Updates .diagcab tool to hide the Nvidia driver.

    And yet, after all this, Windows Update still downloads and installs the Nvidia driver by itself

    I know that I can remove the installed driver afterwards but I don't like to have traces of the old driver along with bloatware. I'd like to freshly install the isolated newest driver.

    I just want to know how on earth I can prevent Windows Update to not install the Nvidia driver by itself. Why don't these settings work at all?

    :)

    Stop windows automatic driver install

    I'm having a problem with installing a nvidia card. windows 7 automatically installs some wdm 1.1 drivers, then when i install the 195.39 drivers, it gives me less performance. like the cards lags in games when it should run fine.

    how can i stop windows from installing the drivers automatically ?

    i tried checking the "don't install drivers from windows update" in device manager. it still installs it.

    Automatic GPU drivers installed

    Hey guys for the past 6 months I've been running a gtx 580 and I've just sent it back today as part of the step up program to get the gtx 680. For the next 2 weeks I will be using my old 9800 gtx+. I installed the card and booted the computer and upon getting to the windows screen, windows searched automatically online and installed drivers. I rebooted and checked the driver version, and sure enough, it had found and installed the latest drivers for my card.

    I've always manually installed drivers by starting up the nvidia process and all that, what windows did, was it a sufficient driver install? When I get the gtx 680, I'm assuming it will do this again, would it be a smart idea to manually install the driver or would windows version do the exact same thing? Thanks guys.

    Windows 7 automatically installs drivers...

    I've got another issue with Windows 7. It automatically installs drivers. I was uninstalling my Nvidia drivers and when I rebooted to reinstall, the operating system found the driver package and installed it on it's own. Can I shut this off?
