And then prevent it from ever updating that driver again?

 

[Why, bcos my dumb laptop company produced a dumb update that doesn't work properly and isn't ever going to change that update. Before windows 10 it doesn't touch my drivers but now it does it despite everything I've tried]

I did that two days ago, says unable to roll back update, so had to restore the computer to a previous state. THen I used the stupid thing to "hide update". Guess what. It then says "fixing error" and immediately downloads the update. WTFFFFFFF

So the update is now on windows update, "ready to install". The only option available is to click install now.

 

I want to get rid of that ready to install update. How.

 

I can't keep backing up my PC waiting for the day MS decides to download/install that update, and when it does, to restore my entire PC back to a previous state. It happened before and I did something thinking it was fixed but it is still doing it.

Do you want to share the driver or device that is causing you concerns?

 

what laptop do you have?

 

 

There can't be thousands of other people with the same issues, can there?

No there can't be. But that's not the question.

Good luck with your approach.

Have a look here .

 

http://www.howtogeek.com/223864/how-to-uninstall-and-block-updates-and-drivers-on-windows-10/

http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/stop-automatic-driver-updates-windows-10

 

Sometimes, and it is quite rare, particular updates stop particular programs from working, or Win driver updates stop certain hardware working.
Its not common anymore, but there is no alternative solution. That update has to be removed & blocked, permanently.
