    hi all

    Surprised this isn't being talked about more, or I've missed the thread so I've created this here.

    It was bothering me that Intel driver update wizard kept nagging me on each reboot for Intel UHD graphics driver update, but when running - it would install and then uninstall and driver version remained stuck on Rebooting would then result in another nag.

    It bothered me even more when recently I found this article suggesting a vunerability for versions less than - which clearly the OEM drivers were.

    My concern initially was that the reason for my inability to upgrade the drivers was because it had already been exploited on my PC. And then I found this. Basically OEM DCH drivers < couldn't be overwritten by non-OEM Intel driver later than that. (which clearly is earlier and hence wouldn't be overwritten)


    The fix is to device manager, uninstall, (clicking the option to uninstall Intel drivers completely) and then reinstall.
    Actually mine skipped a step and automatically reinstalled the newest version rather than OEM because I'd already downloaded and unzipped the zip drivers and attempted a manual install. Windows therefore grabbed those by default rather than the generic drivers.

    Finally this update brings updated intel control panel, so go into programs and features to uninstall the older Intel Graphics Control panel.

    Cheers all
