    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    ; SearchOrderConfig 0 = Yes, do this automatically
    ; SearchOrderConfig 1 = No, let me choose what to do, Always install the best...
    ; SearchOrderConfig 2 = No, let me choose what to do, Install driver software from windows update ...
    ; SearchOrderConfig 3 = No, let me choose what to do, Never install driver software from Windows update
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DriverSearching]
    "SearchOrderConfig"=dword:00000003
