I can never understand why Microsoft think they have the right to filch third party updates and software (such as Nvidia drivers) and pass them off as improvements to their operating systems.
If I want to improve my graphics card or sound card or any other peripherals I will go to the manufacturers web site not use some half baked attempt by Bill Gates and associates.
This sort of thing has happened so often in the past.
Nowadays I will not allow automatic updating of my Windows systems. Yes, I let Windows update inform me that there is stuff available but I examine it carefully before downloading and ignore anything that does not belong to part of the operating system. Even then, I wait a few days to see if anyone has problems with Microsoft's downloads before installing - it has been known and I have been caught out by rogue updates that played havoc with my setup.
With third party driver and similar updates that MS kindly offer, I ignore them completely. My systems work the way I want them to - if they didn't I would have sorted them out sooner. I don't want unnecessary fiddling and twiddling about with systems I am reasonably happy with especially when there is a danger, as you have found jade25, of the thing going base over apex.
I'm a great believer in the adage "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
