Intel® Graphics Driver 31.0.101.2121 for 7th-10th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor Graphics

Hi, 

I'm updating to the latest Intel® Graphics Driver version 31.0.101.2121 (April 5, 2023) via Intel® Driver & Support Assistant, but then Windows Update is downgrading it back to 27.20.100.8280 (May 19, 2020).

Why?

How to avoid it?

Thanks!

Harel

Hi Harel,

To prevent Windows 10 or Windows 11 update to overwrite driver with an old one, download and use Windows Update Show Hide Tool.

I followed all instructions, but My Windows 11 Professional still shows the update.

Hi, 

I have had this in Windows 10 Professional. 

Without this solution (wushowhide.diagcab), the older device driver version has been installed by Windows Update, at any Windows Update run, overwritten the latest version (then I have reinstalled the latest version, and the same happened again and again).

Try this for Windows 11 - How to show or hide updates on Windows 11 - Pureinfotech

 

My current installed device driver (latest version) -
