DDU driver update exclusion.

Post by Rattus » Fri Jul 28, 2017 8:55 am

Good day all.
I'm a new member and have a question regarding DDU v17.0.7.1.
I used DDU to remove all nVidia driver and software from my win 10 PC which has been having random freezes, but so far now seems stable, whoopee!
I followed the recommendations and did this from safe mode and when I launched DDU and clicked clean and restart, a message popped up saying driver was now blocked form automatic windows update. I take it this is just the graphics driver and this can be reset by launching DDU in safe mode again and clicking the Reset default windows update button?

Thank you in advance for your advise.

Yes, you got that most all right.
No need. To go to safe mode if you just intend to hit the button that restore the windows update settings to default.
Also, it doesn't apply only to gpu, it's all or nothing. That's is why there is an option to set it back at default after you installed your new drivers.
Hope it helps

Thank you Wagnard. That makes sense as my AV didn't update.
Unfortunately my PC froze again so this hasn't sorted my issues.
But, thanks again and I'll be a regular on this forum.
All the best.
