    Windows 10 is pushing old drivers updates that you should avoid


    Microsoft has created another mess of Windows Updates on Windows 10, although this time the update wasn’t botched. According to user reports, Microsoft has started rolling out old and inappropriate drivers to some machines, including one of our devices from Asus.

    Users are reporting that inappropriate driver updates are getting pushed to Windows 10 devices which aren’t registered for the Insider program.

    The update in the question is “Intel – System”, which was pushed out last week alongside other optional driver updates for Windows 10 version 2004 (May 2020 Update).

    We’ve also observed users report another bug where the same driver update will reappear for download after successful installation.

    “I installed the ‘Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. – Keyboard – Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard for HP Hotkey Support” Optional Update that was available. Update History and Reliability Monitor confirm a successful update but it still shows up on the optional updates list,” one user noted in the Feedback Hub.

    In some cases, Windows Update could also show old drivers, including drivers with a release date of 1968. Microsoft appears to be backdating drivers intentionally to avoid installation of Windows-provided driver when you have a custom manufacturer-provided driver.


    @WindowsUpdate Windows update is offering this optional update: INTEL – System – 7/18/1968 12:00:00 AM – 10.1.15.6 Intel System driver update released in September 2020.

    If you do happen to see the ‘Intel – System’ or other inappropriate drivers displayed under “Optional Updates” section in the Windows Update page, don’t install it.

    In case the update has already been pulled by Microsoft, you shouldn’t see it any longer anyway.

    Unfortunately, if you’ve applied the driver updates, there’s a piece of bad news – your device driver has been downgraded and you’ll need to download the latest and most compatible version from the manufacturer’s website.

    Going by reports across the forums, those folks who have uninstalled the driver or skipped the update, haven’t encountered any issues in doing so. Also, the update isn’t being forced, so users haven’t encountered any widespread problems.

    That said, be careful when you use the Optional Updates screen in Windows Update and you’re obviously doing updates it at your own risk.

  3. Windows pushed a new nvidia driver via update

    oh i wrote an article about it once few years ago here Windows 10 Automatic Driver Updates Hell Corner , they do not just silently push drivers on you , they even silently push faulty drivers on you that can make you crash often or slow down your performance and surprisingly its a per case scenario , like back then i had a cousin that lives in a different country but bought same laptop and model as mine but never had that .
    so basically i reached the phase where i had to upgrade to window 10 pro so i can disable hardware drivers update through winodws update and also disable automatic driver update since both help pushing those faulty drivers . not just that , even with all these settings i disabled and the fee i had to pay to upgrade to pro , yet still with every windows version upgrade they push on us the drivers update again but this time you may find your entire list updated to hideous buggy versions . so i suggest you keep a folder of your trusty set of drivers as backup in case of version upgrades , and do disable "auto driver updates" and "include drivers in windows update" on pro version of windows . i say pro because its broken on home version , they would still push updates on you even after disabling these options .

    Cheers

    3. Find Realtek High Definition Audio
