    I updated my nVIDIA Driver to the latest one and now every time I reboot. I get a popup from GIGABYTE Control Center informing me that there is an update and wants me to click ok for it to upgrade (when it's actually a downgrade not an upgrade).

    To disable the Control Center from notifiying you about driver updates, which is useless by the way because it is very buggy and sometimes even if you installed the latest drives from GIGABYTE's site directly, it may still show you an older version thinking that it's newer, it's a piece of garbage app to be honest and one should only use it to control the power limits/performance/fan curve/keyboard lighting of the laptop.

    We want to disable the following files from both inboud and outbound traffic in the Advanced Windows Firewall Settings, Add each file and give it any name you want for both inbound/outbound as shown in the illustrations below:

    The files we want to block are:

    thanks mate, good guide. I see we all have the same issues. it's so annoying that even the latest control center wants you to install outdapted drivers, especially for the gpu
