Default Windows 8.1 - Device Manager don't remove the driver?

Hello All,

I installed my fresh Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64 bits (build 9600), on my Acer V3-571G laptop.
Only I have a little problem.

When I go to device manager, and I want uninstall this driver.

--> Imaging devices
--> and Bluetooth,

When I Disable and Uninstall them, then, it's seems te drivers are gone!
But when I restarts mine Laptop, the Imaging devices and bluetooth, comes back?

Why is that? How I can complete remove that?
In the standard Windows 8 (not 8.1) that was possible? But 8.1?

Manny thanks..

Drivers will automatically re-install unless you have installed a different driver for that hardware... it's been that way since Vista. Deleting the driver files will slow the process down somewhat (require the computer to pull the driver off Windows Update), and you can disable that step (don't allow automatic searching online for drivers) if you want to...

Some reason why just disabling the driver wasn't good enough?

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
