    HELP: How Do I Stop Getting this Device Driver Warning?


    Every couple of days, my Win 10 Notifications area lets me know that I need to check my Device Performance & Health for what is always the same driver for which I always choose to apply the fix and restart my PC.

    But it just keeps coming back... can anyone please assist? Screenshots are provided...

    Hi, have you seen:
    Intel(R) Management Engine Interface driver problems

    Fix Intel:registered: Management Engine Interface Has A Driver Problem - Windows 10


    Is the problem resolved by manually reinstalling the driver? Or by uninstalling it and having it reinstall?

    Also check your Update History and /or in Device Manager the date at which this driver was updated. Is it possible you keep getting updates and after the update the problem is reported?

    If so, you could hide that update.

    dalchina, you are the best!

    2nd link you provided had the solution. In my case it was just a matter of going into the Device Manager and MANUALLY doing Update Driver to this device. It went from a 2013 driver to a 2016 driver. Hopefully the solution sticks. I did restart and it was still OK.

    I do wonder WHY this was not applied as part of the "automatic fix" that Windows 10 did when it notified me of the problem. I mean what exactly did Win 10 do as part of their fixing? Seems like having to update a driver manually is very Windows 3.1 lol This is why I'm going to keep an eye out to make sure that this has solved the problem permanently.

    Glad it helped. MS maintains- or is supplied with- a set of driver tables- which must be complex given the range of devices. When you upgrade, you get a new set of drivers. Sometimes this can cause problems, and people may even need to use an OLDER driver, as the newer one introduces a snag.

    I suppose conversely sometimes MS's list may not include the latest driver.

    What you could do, should the driver be replaced, is hide the relevant update, so it isn't applied. (The tutorial section has instructions, or ca nbe done via the useful Windows update minitool (free) ).
