    How to stop Windows 10 from downgrading my Intel Graphics Drivers?!


    Hi all,

    A few days ago we received our new Zenbook 3 Deluxe (UX490UA) and updated to the latest Intel Graphics Driver (24.20.100.6194).

    Unfortunately, every time I try to run Windows update, it downloads the Intel Graphics Driver from 2016 (21.xxxx)


    So far, I have reinstalled the latest driver, which is compatible with my i7 7500 processor, 4 times, however, every time Windows is downgrading me again.

    In addition, editing registry as well as disabling driver updates under the "device installation settings" didn't help.


    How can I stop Windows from messing with this driver as it is driving me nuts?


    I tried with the "show or hide trouble shooter package" but it is mentioning in the title it will "temporarily hide" hide the Windows update.
    It currently isn't showing up, however, how long will it take till it forces this update again?

    The tool I am mentioning can be found below:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...t-a-windows-update-from-reinstalling-in-windo


    Could someone please help? I am literally 1 step away from changing to OSX... :-(

    Thanks a million in advance!

    :)

    Windows 10 Keeps Downgrading Intel HD Graphics Driver

    Hello,

    I have HP laptop with Intel® HD Graphics 530. HP, like any other computer manufacturer, provides driver support for about two years. HP has stopped updating Intel HD graphic driver for my laptop. However, Intel is still providing necessary and in some cases
    critical updates for this driver.

    The issue I am facing is that whenever I install the latest version of the driver from Intel website, Windows 10 immediately downloads an older version from HP and downgrades the driver with the old version from HP. For example, the latest version from HP
    is 20.19.15.4360 (15.40.18.4360). But the latest version from Intel has 15.40.28.4501. I think the problem is with driver version number provided by HP. The latest driver from HP is actually 15.40.18.4360 but HP lists it as 20.19.15.4360 which is wrong
    and that's why Windows 10 thinks that 20.19.15.4360 (15.40.18.4360) version from HP is newer than 15.40.28.4501 version from Intel. Thus, Windows 10 downloads and downgrades it.

    I have tried "Show or hide updates". But it doesn't show Intel graphic driver so I cannot hide this update from Windows. Could you please do something about it so that Windows 10 recognizes correct latest version of the driver from Intel and not downgrade
    it?

    Thank you.

    Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver not compatible with Windows 10

    Hi Jae,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10!

    Some programs and/or drivers might not work as expected in Windows 10 as some manufacturers are still in the process of manufacturing the new definitions of the drivers.

    In this case, you can download an older version of the driver and install it in compatibility mode with a compatible version of Windows.

    For example, you can download Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator version compatible to Windows 7 and install in compatibility mode in Windows 10. Refer to the following steps:

    Step 1: Download and save the driver on the desktop from the following link.

    Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows* 7(exe)

    Step 2: Install the driver in compatibility mode.

    • Right click on the driver, and click on Properties.
    • Go to the Compatibility tab.
    • Check the box for Run this program in compatibility mode for:
    • Select Windows 7 in the list of Operating systems.
    • Click OK.
    • Double-click the driver file to install the driver and follow the onscreen instructions.
    • Reboot your computer.
    Check with the issue. Please post back your results for further assistance.
