    Hi all, yesterday I tried to remove bluetooth drivers from my Windows 8.1 system. I also tried to remove the webcam drivers.

    Everything seemed to go as planned. I then restarted the system and went back in the Administrative Panel. Sure enough, the uninstalled drivers were back, up and running.

    Any way to get some more control over Windows 8.1? More specifically, how to remove drivers and make sure they don't come back behind my back?

    Thanks

    Do you have Windows update set to automatically search for drivers?
    Two, disable the services, and that's as good as removing them.
