Since window 8 has been released drivers compatibility became one of the major problem for users who are using windows OS.
Specially graphics and WiFi drivers have many compatibility issues after windows 8 upgrade and it continued in the latest version of windows, which is windows 10.
just remember always use drivers provided by your system/device manufacturer, if  your drivers are automatically updated by windows you can still remove them. and install the manufacturer provided drivers.

    After disable the driver update, it might cause some problem. If a Windows driver is out of date and you don't update, then the hardware device might not work properly. For example, there is no notification of printer driver update, in this case, your printer might not print. I used to update the drivers by downloading the latest one provided by manufacturers, but it is not really convenient. Now, I use Driver Talent to detect all the drivers and it could help to update the driver once there is a outdated one.

  2. in my experience windows updated messed with my wifi drivers & i was unable to connect to my router anymore,
    connection dropped every 10 minutes, just after i disabled auto updates, i am in heaven 🙂
