    Keeps downloading the same driver


    Every time I check for updates (I've disabled automatic updates in Group Policy) it downloads and installs this driver "Conexant - MEDIA 7/3/2018" which seems to be for the laptop's soundcard.

    How can I fix this?

    Hi,
    Use updates mini tool to hide the update and set to manual or disabled
    Download Windows Update MiniTool - MajorGeeks

    Another option may be to disable Windows updates of non-Microsoft drivers:

    Hi,
    No problem
    Yeah MS often ignores GP and the disable drivers also is often ignored as well
    Mini tool just run it on restart and minimize it that way hopefully MS won't revert it's settings too.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I prefer ThrashZone's solution as there may be some other non-Microsoft drivers that it would be good to receive updates for.
