hiding a driver or Windows update in Windows 10

Postby lorraine » Thu Sep 03, 2015 11:49 pm

Microsoft has provided this help page:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3073930

I found it useful in two areas:

1. Windows 10 kept trying to install drivers for printers that I had uninstalled ages ago but must still have had traces left in the registry.
2. One Windows update for Microsoft Office 2003 (I know it's old) kept failing.

In both cases running the tool gave me the option to stop Windows update from trying to update non-existent devices or failed updates that I didn't need anyway.
