That's with a clean windows install also. Happened to me twice on my 3900x Asus ROG CHVIII Hero (wifi)
Something funny is going on and I believe nVidia is definitely pushing NGE.
They have a help page that even shows up when not searching for Nvidia: https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answ...windows-10-faq
And finally the M$ pages I was looking for:
This stuff is old now but people who don't know still fall into the trap a year later anyway.
GFE works around the issue because it detects standard vs DCH and installs the compatible version. This is something the gigantic driver package should have been doing really.
I never install GFE bloatware.
I think there was some other related Intel GPU drivers issue but that's faint memory.

So what you have to do is, disable all network adapters, reboot into safe mode, ddu, reboot into normal mode (with network still off), install non-DCH drivers and it should work at that point. Good luck.
Or just install DCH driver, huh? Why not. They are finally updated.
Easiest is to DDU old drivers and then install DCH because that's very likely what Windows will auto install on boot before you can launch your own driver install.
NVCP is not in "metro" style or anything, everything is the same, it only says DCH instead of standard under driver details. The DCH are said to be better structured and easier to update only core parts etc. or so they say, I don't feel like reading the dev details when I'm not writing drivers am I.
