Graphics drive repeatedly being installed

Hi,

 

Hoping someone can shed some light on the below issue.

I have a Dell XPS 15, running Windows 11.

 

On almost a daily basis I'm being prompted to install Intel Graphics drivers. Not only that but as far as I can make out it's the same version.

 

I've attached a screen shot of the history.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Regards
Patrick

Stop using IDSA, and use the dell provided tool.

What is happening is that you are installing the latest, then windows decides it wants you to have an earlier version and installs it.  Then you install the latest, and windows, well, you get the picture.

 

If you really want the latest, I have attached the miccrosoft wushowhide utility.

Install the latest, and reboot.

Then, run the wushowhide utility and hide/block the driver windows wants to install.
