HOW TO TURN OFF DRIVER UPDATES - for Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10


Disable them until Microsoft has fixed this problem.  While holding down the Windows key, tap the letter R.  This will bring up the Run window.  In the Run window, type control sysdm.cpl and then click on OK.   Click on the second tab Hardware, then Device Installation Settings.  Select the bottom radio button "NO".  Now click on Save Changes and exit out of all open windows. 


When the Advanced systems settings window opens, click on the Hardware tab at the top.    Once you are on the Hardware tab, click on Device Installation Settings.  Once that window opens, pick the bottom choice No.
