    Anniversary update now supports permanent driver roll back feature.

    I had a issue with a Winbond CIR driver and had to hide it from being getting replaced earlier.

    But this time when I pressed "Roll Back Driver" it asked me "Are you sure you would like to roll back to....." and also gave me 5 options (Radio buttons) asking "Why are you rolling back?"

    • My apps don't work with this driver
    • Previous version of the driver was more performant
    • Previous version of the driver seemed more reliable
    • Previous version of the driver had more features
    • For another reason
    Tell us More <BOX>

    The Yes button remains grayed until you select any option.

    I chose the first option and now the driver is set to my driver and even after update has not been replaced.:D

    But what I said was :
    So it can be done manually (As shown by Winaero) or using the utility (using Winaero).:biggrin:
