Trying to install widcomm drivers. Getting overrun by windows drivers

  1. I am trying to install some widcomm bluetooth drivers but everytime I plug in the usb adapter windows install it's own drivers. I tried manually updating the drivers from device manager but it doesn't allow it.
    Is ther a way to stop windows from installing the drivers to begin with?

    First. Do not connect the usb device.

    Install the drivers for the device, and only connect the device when either prompted to do so, or after the installation is complete.

    Regards Howard :)
