    Intel HD drivers trying to update but device is disabled

    I very briefly switched on the IGP whilst swapping from Nvidia to AMD last month and now Windows Update is constantly trying to update (and failing) the drivers even though no Intel drivers are currently installed, I used DDU to remove the Intel and Nvidia drivers.

    Any idea how to stop it? Now whenever I open Windows update I get updates are available for Graphics Adaptor WDDM1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 for Intel HD Graphics 4600

    I can't even search for new updates any more!

    Use the utility as described in this tutorial to hide the unwanted updates so they won't install. Then try to install latest drivers directly from Intel's site. If there is no Windows 10 driver, try that for 8 or 7. It should work. Right-click on the file and Run as Administrator.

    Cheers, I'll give it a go. I don't want to install the drivers though, I use an AMD card and the IGP is disabled.

    Not working, the updates aren't appearing in there. No option to install any new updates either, even there there are some.

    Fixed it :) I just deleted all the files from C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and ran WHDownloader, the Intel updates were no longer there and I could install TH2 and whatever else was waiting to be installed.

    All good.
