    What does it mean "expressly"? AFAIK it only puts some registry flags, something every user can do manually. I had myself also set Group Policy options to prevent driver installation and those didn't help either.


    Well, if you manually install driver that is digitally signed and WHQL'ed then it will probably also end in "Driver Store" and will be treated by Windows as one of valid fallback drivers.

    this, exactly! i noticed this as well and enabled it manually. windows 10 does this in every feature update, forces me to go through every (i mean every) settings all over again.

    ---

    for driver update, windows 10 will update your graphics driver with a newer version if your driver is very outdated. you can disable it in group policy without a hassle, or you can use comprehensive app like W10Privacy, shutup 10, GetWPD to do that and more fine things.

    Few days now on this HF driver and my Win 10 1803 has never felt so stable. Even my Firefox freeze bug has gone. I was getting one crash a day for some reason while using FF 59 but it's seemingly gone. Feeling confident to now Del Window.old. Removed it now so no going back to lower version of windows from 17134.1.

    Explicitly, clearly.

    I forget the exact language, but upon first use, or after each OS update, DDU asks you expressly if you want to disable automatic driver installation.

    Again, I question the claim that you have (correctly) used DDU?

    Notice there's only 1 set of drivers in my driver store, my current set.

    Honestly, have you considered this may be more a user thing instead of a 10 has a mind of its own thing? If you use DDU correctly then you won't have a problem and in your case of "10 not liking drivers" it would revert to the current set in the store (and not ms basic). If you choose not to use DDU and have already set the group policy, then could it be that you're just forgetting to disable your nic?

    Ive been on 1803 for a good turn and its been great , i havnt had any issues so far and im also on the nvidia vulkan driver which t-j recommended 397.40 and its been stable and gameplay is smooth i dont see any stutter or high dpc or any tdr's atm. Only thing i will say is that many on 1803 have noticed that if you go to windows insider and select skip ahead to next release again , it will download a cumulative update for 1803, which on reboot will get you stuck in a loop. So i wouldn't advise that bit . Apart from that its been great very smooth

    I was writing about general Windows 10 behavior, not any specific issue. But indeed I had such issue several months ago so I have rather huge negative experience with whole thing. I have managed to solve my problem but there was simply so much hassle that I am regretting spent time. DDU had nothing to do with it because as I said when there was nothing left in "Driver Store" it was rolled all the way down to "Microsoft Basic Display Driver" instead. It happened even when I tried to fool Windows 10 installer by manually copying my desired driver to "Driver Store" and re-registering it with PnPUtil or forging .inf files.

    DDU will prompt you to disable automatic driver installs. I always run it in safe mode with the internet disabled (as a precaution) after uninstalling the driver regularly. Never had any problems and I've been on windows 10 for years (currently on 1803).

    @Fumz I always use DDU & I'm using RAPR for quite sometimes already.

    That is interesting app, so you remove old drivers?
    Looked on my system and it seems to have problem with seeing old and current Network driver.

    Yes, and I already wrote that if Windows 10 doesn't like your drivers then it will still keep installing what it wants. And if you physically remove all installers then it will install "Microsoft Basic Driver" instead.

    I wonder if currently hotfixed error of latest driver (397.55) when it unloads itself is actually related.

    You can just visit folder or type "pnputil /enum-drivers".

    I've got a complete system freeze with this driver in GTA, just after a few minutes in the game. I had to do hard reset. Not sure if related. No BSOD so don't know what was the root cause, could be driver or Win 10 1803 itself, or maybe something else. Trying newer WHQL and so far no problem.
