nvidia driver cd

A driver CD. These days, drivers are pushed out via Windows Update. And that can be a BAD thing?

I got a bit annoyed today.

The reason being how Windows 10 automatically found out that a new device driver was available for my Nvidia graphics card, through Windows Update.

Then Windows simply went ahead and installed it for me while I was away from the screen for a couple of hours. In previous Windows versions (Windows 7/XP), you had the option to disable “optional updates” as you pleased.

This is no longer the case in Windows 10 (and 8.1).
