Be sure to have a read HERE  about driverassist. ( i know this is not your issue...I am still researching the issue of the  enlarged download notification)

 

if this issue is only happening with the download of driver assist.....then that may well be the cause !

I am quite sure that is from the driverassist people.

 

Are you aware that you have to PAY to get the functions of that program ?

read the fine print...

In most cases you are better off leaving the drivers alone in windows 10....Providing everything is working ok

 

If everything is working ok.. then the page below will show you how to turn off driver updates from Microsoft....this will allow the hardware on your PC to continue functioning nicely. Sometimes a driver update from Msft will screw with the way your hardware works....and generally make life a bit hard for you !

I think perhaps you need to explain the situation a little more clearly
