Disable automatic driver updating windows 7
Microsoft releases regular updates on a monthly schedule.
Manually finding and installing them, however, would be a big chore, which is why Microsoft includes Windows Update as part of the OS.
Windows Update's main screen gives you a number of important bits of information.
First, in the middle of the screen, it tells you if there are any "important", "recommended" or "optional" updates.
Even though the troubleshooter can hide these updates as well, we do not recommend this as regular updates often contain software and security fixes.
The difference is that Microsoft Update goes beyond just Windows, to update other Microsoft software you might have, like Microsoft Office.
One of the most frequently heard complaints about Microsoft's Windows 10 is the forced download and installation of driver updates through Windows Update.
With Driver Fusion you can disable automatic and mandatory driver updates in Windows 10.
This feature also works in Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1.
