Hi bipot, welcome to the Forum.

To prevent this Update continuing to try & download you need to click on Check for Updates & when new Updates show, click on the Updates showing & then Right Click on that NVIDIA Update & select Hide.

If you still wish to install the NVIDIA update you need to go directly to the NVIDIA website & download the right driver for your version of NVIDIA.

I have often found that driver updates coming through Windows Updates for hardware other than Microsoft, can cause problems. So when an NVIDIA update is shown on Windows Updates I always Hide it, so it does not download & get installed.

To find info about your NVIDIA installation, Right Click on the Desktop & Select the NVIDIA Control Panel. When that opens cliick on the Help tab on the top menu & Select System Information. This should provide you with a lot of info about it for you, if you wish to download the right driver.

Driver updates can be removed from the WindowsUpdate check via

ControlPanel >> System >> Device Manager >> Hardware >> Device Installation settings ... NEVER
