Windows 10 Crashes when installing drivers

So whenever i try to update my drivers, my screen instantly freezes and i can only move my mouse everything works fine in the background. I have an idea that Windows enables my IGPU, even tho i put it to disabled, it does that every time it is so fuxing annoying, do Microshaft even know how to not change the users settings. Anyway it freezes after boot too right before login screen, the only way to bypass it is to "Hard restart" my pc 3 times, go through the awfull safemode interface with like 10 clicks to boot into safemode and disable intel HD graphics.


What i want to know is, IS there anyway to prevent Windows from turning on the IGPU WIHOUT the users consent? Also there is no way for me to update my drivers apart from uninstalling them using DDU and install new ones.


Im using an XFX RX 480 ref with an Asus Sabertooth Z77 and 3770k.
