Go back to 376.53, and before WU installs the older ones again, run this and hide them
http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...owhide.diagcab

Weird I'm not seeing any GPU driver updates on WU

run gpedit.msc
"Computer Configuration>Administrative Template>System>Drivers Installation>Driver Installation restriction>Prevent Installation of Devices using drivers that match these device setup classes"


Device manager> "gpu name">proprieties>details>propety>Class GUID

ID to put in the above GPEDIT.MSC setting

it "should" block all driver updates for the gpu

Clean Up the WinSxS Folder
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn251565.aspx

Quote:
Task Scheduler
The StartComponentCleanup task was created in Windows 8 to regularly clean up components automatically when the system is not in use. This task is set to run automatically when triggered by the operating system. When run automatically, the task will wait at least 30 days after an updated component has been installed before uninstalling the previous versions of the component.
Quote:
Dism.exe
Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) is a command-line tool that allows you to install, uninstall, configure, and update Windows features, packages, drivers, and international settings. The /Cleanup-Image parameter of Dism.exe provides advanced users more options to further reduce the size of the WinSxS folder. For more information, see DISM Operating System Package Servicing Command-Line Options.

Use the /StartComponentCleanup parameter
Using the /StartComponentCleanup parameter of Dism.exe on a running version of Windows 8.1 gives you similar results to running the StartComponentCleanup task in Task Scheduler, except previous versions of updated components will be immediately deleted (without a 30 day grace period) and you will not have a 1-hour timeout limitation.

Use the /ResetBase switch with the /StartComponentCleanup parameter
Using the /ResetBase switch with the /StartComponentCleanup parameter of DISM.exe on a running version of Windows 8.1 removes all superseded versions of every component in the component store.

Use the /SPSuperseded parameter
To reduce the amount of space used by a Service Pack, use the /SPSuperseded parameter of Dism.exe on a running version of Windows 8.1 to remove any backup components needed for uninstallation of the service pack. A service pack is a collection of cumulative updates for a particular release of Windows.

For those who want a Windows 10 lite version, your friends are:

-MSMG ToolKit to create a updated trimmed installation ISO
https://forums.mydigitallife.info/th...2-MSMG-ToolKit
Can get the latest updates to integrate into the ISO from
https://forums.mydigitallife.info/th...fix-Repository

- Windows 10 D-S-T-DEZABLER
https://forums.mydigitallife.info/th...D-S-T-DEZABLER

-Windows Update MiniTool Integrator v1.0
https://forums.mydigitallife.info/th...ntegrator-v1-0

-Process Hacker (I love the real-time information on disk access)
http://processhacker.sourceforge.net/

-Sysinternals Autoruns
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../bb963902.aspx

OBS, If remove too much stuff some future update may fail, in that case you have to create a
new updated installation ISO and update from the ISO, but do not forget to disconnect from Internet.
