    The official one doesn't work all that well and I also have a .bat file that supposedly disables ALL drivers from being updated over Windows Update. However, I want to black only specific ones. What's the best and most updated tool to do that?

    I was driving around today and it was such a smooth drive, until suddenly I ran over a BUMP!

    Doesn't work.
    I have Intel NUC D34010WYKH on Windows 10 PRO TH2 X64 on fresh install from a bootable USB. The ISO was downloaded from Microsoft directly.

    I ran SFC once Windows booted up after initial "Lets Start" message. No errors.

    Then Intel WHQL official Driver got installed through Windows Update. Then I run SFC, I get corruption errors. I ran your command with mounted TH2 ISO and it even said that it was able to fix the errors.

    But then after a reboot, SFC /scannow still throws up some errors. They just are unfixable even if I completely uninstall the display driver and unplug LAN cable.

    Then I used Microsoft's autohide tool to hide the driver update and disabled it from "device installation settings" found by right clicking on your PC in Old Control Panel's Devices and Printers.

    So again a fresh install. But as soon as it connects to internet, it downloads and installs the Intel's display driver blatantly ignoring my settings. Again file corruption. I want to block this driver so badly.

    Am I missing anything? Why Microsoft has to be hands up our arse all the time?

    I would install Windows Update minitool and then uninstall driver you are having problems with, next time it shows up, hide it:D

    What it (your computer) is doing is reinstalling that driver every time you reboot, use mini tool and uninstall it.:D
