Windows Update vs. Intel Driver and Support Assistant

Hello,

 

I hope you are well!

 

Since a week ago, Windows Update and Intel Driver and Support Assistant have been fighting for my attention, which is rather both annoying and worrisome.

 

Windows Update wants to install the Graphics driver 31.0.101.3729 (Display in Windows terms).

Intel Driver and Support Assistant wants to install the Graphics driver 31.0.101.3959.

 

The vicious-cycle goes like this:

a) Intel Driver and Support Assistant is always popping-up stating that I have an update.

b) So, I do update the drivers, and reboot my laptop.

c) Afterwards, Windows installs (automatically) this downgrade, popping-up a notice that I need to restart.

d) After restarting, it goes back to a) where Intel Driver and Support Assistant is always popps-up a notice for an update.

 

I already disabled the automatic driver update for Windows, in hope that this issue for these two specific versions would  go away.

Unfortunately, it did not. Windows update still installs automatically this Graphics / Display drivers, despite me disabling that option.

 

This is both (1) annoying because after each update the computer wants to restart, and (2) worrisome because this behavior does not convey to me the overall finish quality of an Intel product.

 

Do you have any suggestion?

 

Thank you in advance!

I wish you a great holiday season 🙂

 

Cheers!
