windows keeps re installing HD graphics driver after i uninstall it

hello all, im trying to update drivers for intel hd graphics card on my laptop with a clean install of the new drivers and everytime i uninstall and delete all the old driver files windows automatically re installs them.

I'm using home premium so i cant use the gps.edit method to prevent it from re installing them. I have also tried the turn off out automatic updates and changing the driver device settings and i havent had any luck.

Is there any other way to prevent windows from re installing the old drivers? thanks in advance.
