Disable MSI updates

Recommended Posts

I am not even sure MSI pushes updates through Microsoft Update but if they do, only drivers updates that are labelled as "critical" will be automatically installed. The rest is offered as optional updates meaning you can choose to install them or not.

We can only hope that any updates from MSI offered through Microsoft Update or their own website will be screened for malicious code. It would be very bad for their reputation if they screw that up as well.

Updates specific to MSI products come through the MSI Live Update utility - if you have it installed.

Windows Updates will only include third-party component drivers such as Realtek audio drivers.

It's worth remembering that a large number updates are to patch security vulnerabilities.
