Trying to turn off windows automatic driver install.

I`ve used this procedure, but if I turn on my printer, windows still starts installing the driver.

I have drivers & software from Epson site I want to use, but then I end up with 2 printers installed.

Screenshot shows the settings, but windows still auto installs the drivers, any help ?

Managed to do what I wanted by removing the printer that was installed automatically by windows, then installing the software I wanted to.

Strange the above method doesn`t work.
