Windows 10: Windows10 updates & installs ALPS pointing device driver every day
Windows10 updates & installs ALPS pointing device driver every day
I'd appreciate some help. Ever since the Big Windows 10 update nearly two weeks ago, the automatic updates history shows that Windows is updating and installing the ALPS pointing device driver once a day, nearly every single day. Obviously this is a bug. I don't get any message telling me that the update failed, however. It just seems to mindlessly repeat the operation every day for no good reason. I've searched various help forums and it would seem that it's impossible to disable automatic updates for any single or specific driver, because Windows knows best . I understand that I can simply disable the device and its updates, but I don't want to do that, even though I rarely use the touchpad (I have the touchpad disabled when a USB mouse is plugged in). Also I should point out that this is not interfering with my laptop's performance per se, as far as I can tell. It's just annoying to know that this is happening every day and is a needless bit of activity! Thanks for any help you can give me.
1) Does setting Windows Updates to "notify for download and notify for install" via GP edit also disable Device Driver automatic installation?
2) Or does disabling automatic device driver installation need to be configured separately?...
Recently I've re-installed Windows 10 on my machine due to some technical difficulties and I also chose to removal all settings, personal files, etc.
As of now, i'm re-adding all necessary and personal items on my computer for mine own use and...
Obviously there are a lot of bad drivers for Windows 10.
Via PC/ Properties / Advanced /Hardware / Device Installation one should, in theory, be able to block.
Does not work in Windows 10. Device drivers update anyway.
How do I block...
so, i got Windows 10 immediately once it was available.. even prior to that my touchpad was going in and out, like sometimes it sticks and doesnt work, but rubbing on it with a little force got it back and it'd be fine for hours or however long.
My system seems to show several devices which do not yet have drivers, and some are just the Basic drivers for other devices.
Has Microsoft given any guidance as to how drivers need to be installed in Windows 10? ASUS does not have any Windows...
