Windows Optional Updates

2021-01-27, 13:12 PM

Has anyone else been having issues with the optional updates through Windows Update? We usually use Lenovo Vantage to update device drivers, and now Windows Update is regularly trying to install device drivers that are outdated or already installed, creating errors and being difficult. If anyone has encountered this issue, is there any advice you could provide to try to avoid it moving forward? Thanks!

Hello d.duffy ,



Welcome to Lenovo Community




You've done a great job by maintaining driver updates thru Vantage, or Lenovo support site


However since you're machine's OS is Windows, its inevitable that you receive those driver updates from Microsoft.

To prevent this from happening, try this link.
