problem relating graphics driver since the recent windows creator update

So here's my question: i have a lenovo ideapad y700 that's around 2 years old now and withe the recent windows creator update / nvidia update, i've had lot's of problems like the game launching on the intel driver and when i ask them to launch on nvidia some doesnt want to go fullscreen and crashes.
i've looked up my drivers and it would seem that my intel hd graphics 530 driver wasn't updated since end 2016.
i searched around and found out that lenovo was probably the reason why it didn't update anymore and now i'm asking myself if i should update it manually from the latest version downloaded on intel website.

  1. Do a roll-back of the system to a time before the update, see if things work properly. If they do, go into the update options and turn off Windows trying to update drivers. https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/disable-automatic-driver-downloads-on-windows-10

    If you are talking about the recovery option in windows ten creator update then its gone because i took too much time before making this post and if avoid having to do a clean install of windows and for the nvidia updates i don't think they are the culprits as they appeared to come after the crashes ( i should still try to downgrade) and the last thing I can think of rn is updating my Intel driver manually but i don't know if it's a good idea

    There should be a system restore point before the update happened, those do not get deleted. You said the issue happened after the nVidia updates which would point to the issue of the driver update. If you are using a laptop, the best drivers to use are from the laptop vendor, not Windows or nVidia.

    I am actually turning off Windows checking for driver updates on all my computers and recommending that to everyone I know, Windows 10 is a bit too happy updating stuff that breaks computer functions, especially gaming speed.
