Arc, have him turn off WU, go to C: Nvidia and open the folder, open the display drivers folder, delete everything in it. it will be files with driver numbers like 314.22, 301.xx. Have him delete all of those folders, but do not deledt the displat drivers folder, only what's inside. Go to uninstall programs and find the Nvidia drivers. Uninstall the all, 3D vision, PhysX, nvidia Update, all o them except the Nvidia graphice driver. uninstall the Nvidia Graphics driver last. It will then tell you to reboot. Reboot and Windows will install a graphics adapter. That is OK. It is not a graphics driver. Then install the graphics drivers exactly like you showed him. Only install the Graphics driver and PhysX and check the clean install box. That will be as clean an install as you can get. But, the graphics adapter windows will install is OK. It is not a graphics driver.

Arc, in the first post you made, you stated the computer thinks driver verifier is turned on. Driver verifier, as you know, is made to make the drivers crash. Have you addressed that problem? If it is turned on, almost any driver will crash. Also, as far as the driver being installed. That is why you clean out the display drivers folder. When you install The drivers, sometimes the Nvidia installer will see another or newer driver in that folder and install it instead of the one you downloaded. So, delete all of them first, I have windows update to check for drivers but let me decide what to install. It has never installed a driver I didn't want.

That is the driver bug, Steve
Actually the DV is not enabled, but the driver bug makes the computer think that the DV is enabled.
If it is really DV enabled there, the default bucket ID would have been "Verifier enabled vista minidump" (it will contain the word vista for windows 7, too).

The driver the OP is getting every time via an update is that buggy driver. So it should be stopped.

@ OP, follow what essenbe suggested.
First download the target driver.
Then disconnect the internet.
Then uninstall the display driver.
Then go to :C:\Nvidia\Display Driver, and delete all the folders in it.
Now install the target driver as suggested earlier.
Restart.
Now connect the internet back. Make it sure that auto driver update is disabled.

Hope it will work.

Ok I followed that exactly, and so far it seems to have no issue. Thanks to you both I will let you know if it continues to keep this same driver without updating.

If you leave WU set to check for drivers but let me decide, it should not, unless you let it. If you see a graphics driver in Windows update, just right click it and select 'Hide update'. Next time you open windows update, it shouldn't be there.

Sorry, Arc. I guess that's what I get for getting into your job. I'm not smart enough to do what you do.

A student cannot be smarter than his teacher ... so I cannot be smarter than you

It is you who taught me all about graphics driver, Steve. What I posted here are all based on what I learned from you, including that screenshot.

Ok so everything seemed to be going fine. The driver did not automatically update again and I had no more issues, until yesterday. Yesterday the pc was just sitting on my desktop with no applications open when it suddenly started getting the error where your driver has stopped responding and has recovered over and over for about 5 minutes followed by a blue screen of death. I have attached the image of the first error and the crash dump. Edit* The driver was not updated, the driver which had this issue was the 306.23 driver.

Click the button type regedit in the Search programs and files box, and then right-click on regedit under Programs (1) If you get the User Access Control window click on the Yes button .
Navigate to and then click the following registry subkey:

Generally this is a hardware error. It happens as the GPU is taking more time than permitted to display graphics to your monitor. We tried with different driver versions, got the same results. Now, IMHO, if you try to increase the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) processing time by adjusting the Timeout Detection and Recovery registry value, It will not be a good attempt, as said here:
Quote:
Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly.
Source: "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error in Windows 7 or Windows Vista

I would suggest you to not modify the registries if you are not sure yourself what you are doing. Coz those settings will continue in registry even after you change the GPU. So better you replace your GPU.
