    Wireshark or Fiddler for debugging.
    Adguard custom filtering rules:

    ://*xxxxxxx.com^$important,app=xxx.exe
    @@||*$app=xxx.exe

    or

    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx^$network,app=xxx.exe,important
    @@||*$app=xxx.exe

    or

    Advanced FW...ESET etc.

    e.g. PS (don't copy this) blocking proper Domains/IPs without breaking other functions.

    So what does doing this accomplish over just doing regular updating?

    I've also been updating nvidia drivers by simply installing them over the existing ones, sometimes going the extra mile and checking the "clean install" option but not every time. Zero problems so far. All the games still run just fine.

    Got a new machine now and I'm trying to find out if there's any actual benefit in running DDU everytime, doing a real clean install of new drivers.

    Incredibly helpful.
    Moderators should make this a sticky so newcomers can see this
