    Windows update keeps failing to install

    I keep getting offered the above Intel update by Windows Update. I have downloaded it several times and tried to install it, but it always fails. Anyone else have the same issue? Is there a fix?

    You're welcome. It seems to be (and not for the first time) an inappropriate Windows Update offering. I would just hide the update by right clicking it and selecting 'Hide Update'. That will stop it appearing, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if Microsoft remove it from Windows Update anyway at some point.

    You can go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System
    Choose Advanced System Settings
    Hardware tab
    Device Installation Settings
    Use these settings:

    I do not allow Windows to Update my drivers(I only update the graphics driver myself and leave everything else alone)
