    Windows 10 Automatic Updates Start Causing Problems

    Evidently Win 10's automatic updating now also updates ( what was before ) "Optional" updates also, including video drivers etc.
    Hopefully that will change because most of us know that video drivers have ALWAYS been problematic with WU.

    Dreadful Drivers

    The flaw revolves around Nvidia graphics cards with users taking to Nvidia’s forums to report Windows Update is automatically installing new drivers which break multimonitor setups, SLI (dual card) configurations and can
    even stop PCs booting entirely which pushes Windows 10 into its emergency recovery mode.

    “Please pull these off Windows update!!!” writes Nvidia forum poster slycoder. “It makes my second monitor not work and lots of flickering! Please. I roll back and Windows Update reinstalls them :/”

    I have reserved my copy but I don't automatically install Windows updates ... Just get the notifications. Will I be able to install Windows 10 at my discretion or is it forced on me now I have reserved it?
