How can I disable driver auto-update done by windows?

The easiest way to stop getting driver updates from Windows Update is using the Local Group Policy Editor with these steps:

Use the Windows key + R keyboard shortcut to open the Run command.
Type gpedit.msc and click OK to open the Local Group Policy Editor.
Browse the following path:
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update
On the right side, double-click the Do not include drivers with Windows Update policy.
Select the Enabled option.
Click Apply.
Click OK.
After completing the steps, your device will continue to receive security and other patches, but drivers will be excluded.
