First make sure Windows Update is caught up with all the system updates.

Follow the following steps below in order.

Snappy Driver Installer

  1. Download SDI Lite version https://sdi-tool.org/download/
  2. Extract Zip to Downloads or Documents
  3. Right-click SDI_x64_*.exe and Run as Administrator
  4. Download Indexes Only
  5. Click top banner that says update and make sure Indexes are only selected and hit apply
  6. Click Select all on left bar
  7. Click Install
  8. Reboot
  9. Follow steps 3-8 once a month, I'd also recommend deleting indexes and drivers directories in the SDI directory after updating

PrivateZilla

  1. Download https://github.com/builtbybel/privatezilla/releases/download/0.50.0/privatezilla.zip
  2. Extract Zip to Downloads or Documents
  3. Right-click on Privatezilla.exe and Run as Administrator
  4. Click Windows 10 box at the top to select all
  5. Unselect Updates as you don't want to disable Updates, you only want to pause updates
  6. Click Analyze
  7. Apply selected
  8. You can remove this after you're done, sometimes when Windows Updates it will reset some of these settings, you can keep it and rerun once in awhile but you're good for awhile

  1. After the first time you run Bloatbox and Privatezilla, reboot
  2. Download https://www.bleachbit.org/download/windows installer not portable edition
