    Windows 10 automatic updates


    Windows is automatically updating my drivers even though I have disabled the automatic drivers updating in the Device Installation Settings. The problem is windows is automatically installing Realtek HD audio drivers and since I use a sound card "Sound Blaster Z" this is causing me problems. How can I make it stop?

    :)

    window's 10 automatic updates

    Hi Jean,

    The idea of your concern pertains to really the automatic updates feature in Windows. When downloading of updates is done, your computer should not reboot automatically unless the
    Active hours option in the Settings is not set. Check it out. To do so, see the steps below:

    • Press Windows key and type "Windows Update" in; then, choose "Check for updates". The Windows Update window should appear.
    • Under "Windows Update", you'll see the "Change active hours" at the bottom.

    I absolutely agree with DullRazr. The answer is ambiguous, prolix and unhelpful. I am reluctant to purchase a Windows 10 machine for cellular network use until I get a satisfactory answer, which evidently, is unlikely to come from Microsoft channels. I have
    already decided against a Windows Phone and am considering the Chrome OS.

    It didn't work. The realtek driver is not shown on the list so I can't hide it.

    For some reason my Windows can't find the "Local Group Policy Editor"

    EDIT: I've used the reg. file. Hopefully it will work.

    Since you use Creative Sound Blaster for audio have you tried going into device manager and disabling the Realtek audio device? It may not update the driver if the device is disabled.

    I haven't thought of that. On my next restart I'll try this out.
