    Intel(R) Network Connections Drivers reporting the driver size as Gigabytes in add/Remove programs

    ImNotSerious

      when looking at the Add/Remove Programs, as well as Settings/System/Storage/Storage Usage, "the Intel(R) Network Connections Drivers" is reporting (in my case 6 gigabytes) usage.

      this is apparently because the InstallDirectory setting in the installer is %systemroot%\system32, and not its own directory, so it gets charged for the whole system32 subtree. when I was looking for stuff to delete from my windows 10 computer, this looked like something was wrong and I should delete it. fortunately, I knew it was a misrepresentation. I strongly encourage you to fix that, because its not very helpful to regular users, and could lead to complaints and confusion.
