    Hey all,

    Trying to understand a problem which I thought I would never run into. I rolled back to an old nVidia driver a week ago for my 780GTX.

    Out of the blue, WU gives me an update 2017!!!
    NVIDIA - Display - 10/27/2017 12:00:00 AM - 23.21.13.8813

    I have group policy enabled not to offer driver updates through WU.

    Anyone have an idea why I get an old driver offered through WU especially with GPE enabled?

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Yep, I was running 385.69 for quite a while and had to do all this to stop M$ hijacking my preferred driver. Just another entry in the LONG list of reasons I f@#$ing hate Windows 10.

    Wow man,

    Applied reg tweak and update installed anyways. What a nightmare. I can't even control my own Windows enterprise. :(

    No driver, or any other update can install unless you allow it, with this. What's the catch you ask? Manual updating only with no notifications.

    Thanks for the script. I'll check it out. I still say that you shouldn't have to jump loops on a business version of Windows. No driver install should mean,no driver install.

    Welcome to Windows 10, where to gain control you have to modify the OS.
