Windows 10's automatic update feature caused some concern when broken NVIDIA drivers were forced on beta testers last week but it seems a tool to block certain updates is already available.

ZD Net writes Microsoft issued the KB3073930 troubleshooter package, a tool that allows power users to hide or block selected Windows updates and driver updates.
The package was digitally signed on June 15, and the accompanying Knowledge Base article is dated July 7, just a few weeks ago. The package is labeled for use with the Windows 10 Insider Preview, but based on its performance on the final (10240) preview build, it looks like it should work with the final release beginning July 29.
