Disable Windows 10 auto driver update and Linux Drivers

2017-02-18, 8:54 AM

Dear Lenovo Tech Support,


Windows 10 Is the most annoying OS ever.


It does havoc in my P40 Yoga, It automatically installs drivers that does not work well with the P40.


Whenever I opened Firefox and tried to connect to a website or tried to connect to a different Wifi network, the screen would turn black for a couple of seconds and the mouse cursor would center it self in the screen, like some sort of a reset.


I installed the original WiFi driver from Lenovo website and magically the problem stopped.


It is unreasonable and even time consuming that I have to write this message and needed to reinstall drivers from Lenovo website because of this new idiotic OS.

I demand, that you write a script and add an option to the Lenovo settings app that will prevent windows 10 from automatically updating it's drivers and replacing them with universal ones.


Also I had an Impression that Lenovo is a professional company, that make sure their computers work well and error free, without annoying maintenance... well prove me right and kindly if it's not too much to ask, contact Microsoft yourself and make sure they stop auto-updating drivers and replacing them with universal ones.


An addition, I would appreciate it, if kindly you will provide all needed drivers for the Linux community for the P40, I'm sick of WINDOWS!!!

The decision to automatically upgrade device drivers was one made solely by Microsoft, and they, not Lenovo, are the only ones who can change that.  Microsoft does provide instructions on how to temporarily disable automatic updating of device drivers, but it's only a temporary solution.

I would suggesting reporting the issue in Microsoft's own Answers forum, and seeing if they have a more permanent solution.
