When you install Nvidia video drivers we have to go into the nvidia control panel and turn off the autoupate. Is there a way to install the drivers with this already turned off? The autoupdate is constantly pinging the nvidia website

And if there is no easy way to turn it off, you can always try to monitor what address it's talking to and block that in firewall/hosts file

Your best bet is to find the registry for the NVidia AutoUpdate (if there's one) and script something that will change his value to turn it off before installing the drivers.
