I spent a full week trying the stop the forced n Vidia Ge Force G210M driver download/install which turn the screen blank - thus making any attempt to remove the driver update impossible.The Win10 Home edition does not have "gpedit.msc' capability to block driver installation based on hardware Id.Too often the 10 upgrade or clean install will simply grab the first available but not the actual working driver sets.
I set up my other laptop (Win10 Home) with only Wi Fi connection and turn on "metered connection" to hold off all waiting downloads.
I am going to test your solution, and would appreciate some explanation on what it does to Registry. Using old cars as analogy to older Windows, drivers are like internal gears and moving parts. If you haven't already, you should be able to use OPTION ONE below to disable automatic updates to be able to hide the driver for now.
Many users don't know what Registry is, and can be dangerous if not done correctly. There is no Exclude WUDrivers In Quality Update key. Now Microsoft is forcing all older gears and moving parts to fit Win10 power train. I find setting you Internet connection to be metered in step 1 works best.
I have an even more interesting problem to work out on the latest 7 to 10 upgrade being seen.
On a sibling's mini tower similar to the second test pc here but with an older Asus board forget even getting online! Will now have to use a ethernet to usb adapter in a couple to see about getting the 10 upgrade activated as well as manually tracking down the possible 8.1 x64 driver sets for onboard sound, chipset, etc.
