Turn off the option to get driver updates from Windows Update

As you may know, sometimes drivers that may come through Windows Update may not be perfect [hummm]. Many experts prefer to update the drivers on their own. In Windows 10 you can turn off Windows Update from updating any drivers with is procedure:

  1. Navigate to Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings.
  2. Click the Hardware tab then click on Device Installation Settings.
  3. Select the No (your devices may not work as expected).
  4. Then select Save Changes.

Under Windows 7, you have further options if you choose No, let me choose what to do. You can choose always or never get driver updates from Windows Update or only get drivers if not on the computer.
