So this is not a cry for help, just another vent my frustration with windows 10 topic. This happened to me recently: I'm building a PC for fun, and while I'm fiddling with it I wanted to just throw in a spare GPU that I had lying around so I can use my best GPU on my primary PC in the meantime. But that's only the backstory. The main thing is: I slammed a Quadro 4000 in the build running W10 PRO (fully activated), driver updates from windows update disabled. But still it installed some microsoft driver for the GPU, don't know where it got it from, when driver updates are explicitly disabled. And after this it became impossible to install any driver for any nvidia GPU. In my frustration thinking that the old graphics card might have failed after all, I took out the new GPU from my primary PC wasting my time and effort, only to get the same result. Impossible to install drivers for it, no matter which version, no matter what GPU Quadro or Geforce. This is what I'd get when trying to run the nvidia driver setup utility: And this when trying to install drivers trough the device manager manually: So I thought I'd share this gem, as edification to the fanboys thinking we hate W10 for no damn reason. This is just one example on the long list of frustrating and infuriating experiences with this "Final" windows.
