How to disable the automatic installation of drivers in Windows Vista and 7 - video tutorial

Hi friends, in today's tutorial you'll learn together how we can disable automatic driver installation in Windows Vista or Windows 7. Why would we want this? To better understand you elaborate a little situation that I hit it. Having a Bluetooth USB stick and having drivers for Windows 7, I want to install drivers for Windows Vista from the CD that came with the stick Bletooth. Said and done. I go in, install the drivers from the installation CD, make system restart so I asked for and what to see? After I returned from restart, Windows esteemed 7 put his tail, gave me warning as he found a new device and started to automatically search, drivers for my Bluetooth stick and then installed them automatically without any confirmation ask me. So my Windows Vista driver installation showed unnecessary. So was born the idea of ​​creating this tutorial. We know that Windows Vista and Windows 7 have the ability to automatically search and install drivers for new devices that we introduce in our PC, but this has edged 2 if I may say so.
When is it better to leave him to seek out automatically after the drivers and install them?
When we have a device that do not have drivers or drivers CD that came with that device. If even after a search on Google or the device manufacturer's website or can not find the driver, the last hope we can call on Windows Vista and Windows capacities 7 to drivers looking for us. Honestly is not the best decision because it not only installed the driver and so, not software that will help us manage-Riem or do advanced settings device.
An example would be: If you have an ATI video card or sound card Realtek, and allow your Windows Vista 7 or to install drivers found via Windows Update, it will not install and CCC (Catalyst Control Center) and Realtek HD Audio Manager, Software that helps you make managerial devices and more particularly to the device settings.
When it is best to let Windows automatically look after our drivers and install them?
When the official manufacturer drivers hold the device, when we have an original CD that came with the device. Drivers taken directly from the manufacturer or the existing ones on the CD that came with the device / component are definitely much better than those found through Windows Update. These driver besides coming with a control panel or type manager software will allow as I said above, more extensive settings on the component / device.
That being said I invite you to follow along this video tutorial, where we will learn together steps to prevent Windows Vista 7 or to engage in automatic installation of drivers.

  2. I have never had problems with automatically installed drivers for 3 years since I have a PC and use Vista / 7. I like it more than installing it, because if I put the driver on the sound card, it installs a nonsense for the system tray that gets into the start-up and loads the PC much harder, the video card as well, the printer installs programs for pictures etc.… those installed automatically worked very well for me (even for printer, webcam and phone - used as storage and as a 3G modem).

      The most convenient is to get in BIOS and select "None" la Floppy Drive A …Click here… After you set the Floppy Drive "None" press F10 key to save the settings [Save & Exit Setup] then press Y Yes. It will be restarts calculatoru wait until loading windows
