I was going too fast while installing latest Intel Chipset drivers. During install a dialog box popped up to install "System Devices." Adjacent to the Install/Don't Install buttons was a Windows Security checkbox stating "Always install software from Intel." I don't think I effectively disabled the checkbox when I hit "Install." Where is this setting in Windows or Windows Security so I can go back and remove Intel or any other "trusted" software manufacturers? Thanks.

I believe you are looking to disable a Silent Install . A Silent Install means an installation is completed without the interaction of the user.
Usually this silent install is performed by supplying the correct command line switches to the installer. The default Microsoft Installer is setup.exe. The command line switches for a silent install using setup.exe can be any of /q, /q1, /q2. Changing any of these switches to /q0 overrides the silent install with a normal install.

Question is, does Intel use the default Microsoft Installer, or is it using its own software - either the Chipset Software Installation Utility, or the newer Intel Chipset Device Software (setupchipset.exe)?

Another question is, where does this setup program get called? When the computer starts, or on a scheduled event? To begin searching, I would look in the Start Menu (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup) or look for a suitably scheduled task in Task Scheduler.

If nothing looks viable in either of those locations, then I would look in either services.msc for an Intel(R) service that might be updating the system drivers, or look in programs and features for a possible utility.
