    Wushowhide showing drivers that can't find how to install

    Wushowhide is showing "Intel Other hardware- Intel Watchdog Timer Driver" and an Intel 400 driver.
    The latter I take it is not being installed as I have the actual Intel drivers installed and I normally just hide these. The Watchdog I have no idea about but I can find no such thing in device manager with hidden devices shown or is it downloaded using updating. Would this also have a latter Intel one installed as part of the 400 driver I have?

    The trick to installing drivers from windows update is to right-click on the related hardware in device manage and choose "Update driver software" then "Search automatically...".

    It took me a while to figure this out because I was seeing these updates in the show/hide wupdate program but it wasn't installing them even though I wanted them to!

    As for your specific issue, no idea - I have a similar update to hide but there's nothing listed in DM to match it.

    It seems "Intel Other hardware- Intel Watchdog Timer Driver" is displayed under the name motherboard resources inside system devices. Mine was the last one in the list. So like WastedJoker said we have to check manually for each device driver upgrade in device manager. So check the driver for motherboard resources one of them will be updated and the name will be displayed as Intel(R) Watchdog Timer Driver.
