I am not sure what the heck is going on, but almost everyday, I have to run troubleshoot blutetooth to make the drivers work, again. I use a mouse, speakers primarily..
I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers. I ran the intel scanner and they installed the latest drivers, per their site, Previous one was 22.110.2.
I am running Windows 11 on my Sager laptop
Edition Windows 11 Home
Version 22H2
Installed on ‎9/‎27/‎2022
OS build 22621.1413
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-10870H CPU @ 2.20GHz 2.21 GHz
Installed RAM 32.0 GB (31.8 GB usable)
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
I am in settings now for WIndows Updates, I dont see that option to notify of updates, but not to install.
I found it in Local Group Policy editor.
But its generic for all windows. How do I stop intel from being updated also. If possible.

you need to press windows button and X and go to Device manager there properties on wireless - Driver - Roll back driver and chose this driver do not work for me. W/o this every time I log to windows my driver was replaced by one windows recognized as latest.
Thnx, Currently the driver in there is working fine. If I roll back driver, will this guide above cause it to think this driver is bad?
This will allow you block anything showing/trying to install through WU.
This will not block anything until you tell it to block a certain update (the update has to be showing to install)

For you to know which firmware/driver is causing problems (if coming from WU) check windows updates history.

You have to run this befor it installs by WU. if the bad driver package installs its either a rollback or uninstall to make it pop back up on WU.

I used this on windows 10 and now windows 11 to block intel (out dated) graphics driver trying to install.
