Intel recently released a driver update for Windows 10 systems with version 18.104.22.16809. The update installs fine on all systems. But for some reason, it keeps trying to install over and over leaving it in an almost permanent pending install state.
One Windows 10 user has reported that Intel(R) Corporation System 22.214.171.12409 update has installed seven times on his computer and it’s still showing up as pending install in the Windows Update settings.
If you see this Intel driver update doing the same on your Windows 10 machine, the only workaround to this problem is to hide the update from your computer. And it’s safe to do so in this because it has already been installed on your PC.
How to hide Intel(R) Corporation System 126.96.36.19909 update
To hide an update on Windows 10, we’ll use the “Show or hide update” troubleshooter package from Microsoft. You can download it at the link below:
- Download wushowhide.diagcab (45.59 KB)
- Download and run wushowhide.diagcab troubleshooter package on your Windows 10 PC.
- Hit the Next button, let it search for available updates, and then select Hide updates option.
- Tick the checkbox for Intel(R) Corporation System 188.8.131.5209 update and hit Next.
That’s it. This particular Intel system driver update will no longer show in your Windows Update settings. Cheers!
