    How to get rid of unwanted driver that has already downloaded

    I have a bad copy of the Intel HD Graphics driver downloaded into Windows Update. Each time it tries to install it crashes the system.

    I don't even use the onboard display adapter so I disabled it and blocked the driver from installing by first hiding the update and then using gpedit.msc to prevent its installation. This solved the crashing problem but left me with an annoying alert message.

    When Windows Update tries to install this update it fails because of the group policy setting and notifies me with a nastygram. This occurs daily. Normally, Update would not download this driver update because it is hidden. Unfortunately, it is already downloaded so it tries and fails to install it frequently.

    How do I delete the update from the already downloaded queue of updates awaiting installation?

    Preferable, restart the system, then run CMD as admin and copy/paste all at once:

    taskkill /im TiWorker.exe /f
    net stop bits /y
    net stop cryptSvc /y
    net stop UsoSvc /y
    net stop winmgmt /y
    winmgmt /salvagerepository
    taskkill /im TiWorker.exe /f
    net stop wuauserv /y
    rmdir "%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution\Download" /s /q
    del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr0.dat"
    del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr1.dat"
    fsutil usn deletejournal /d /n c:
    chkdsk /scan
    winmgmt /salvagerepository
    cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & cleanmgr /sagerun:65535
