        This HP Printer package arrived in my Update Available this morning. I hid it but would like to know what it is and if in fact I need it.  I have little faith in MS offering up other company’s updates. Thanks in advance for any information.

        We need more information about “HP Printer package” to be able to advise.
        Does it have a KB number?

        cheers, Paul

          Sorry that is all that there was. No KB number which made me suspicious hence my question here.

        Is it the one that came up as an HP app launch in the Notification area?
        Show us what you hid.

        It is still in the Updates area many hours later.  I have attached it as requested.  I have Windows10 Pro, 1909, 18363.1o82 all set as per the venerable PK Cano’s great detailed instructions. Thanks to all for your replies.

        According to the Microsoft Catalog it’s a PCL6 driver. There’s lots of printers mentioned, e.g. ‘HP LaserJet Pro MFP M521’:

        hp-m521

        The only way of checking whether it’s relevant is to match the size of the download (which varies wildly from 33KB to 2.7MB) against the catalog or you post the model of HP printer you have so the catalog can be checked.

        As it’s just a driver update (with no mention of any security issue) then, if your printer is working OK, IMO you don’t really need it.

        Hope this helps…

          Rick thanks for the info.  Strangely I don’t  have a ‘HP LaserJet Pro MFP M521’ – nothing remotely  like it in fact.  Mine is  a Deskjet 1050 All-In-One J410. It’s quite possible MS’s AI (Abysimally Ineffective) system has struck again.  Cheers.

        I mentioned the HP LaserJet Pro MFP M521 as an example of one of the printers mentioned.

        However, I’ve been through all 18 entries on that Microsoft Catalogue page for that particular HP printer update and not one of them is for a Deskjet 1050 All-In-One J410.

        IMO you can ignore the update.

        Hope this helps…

        I have been “offered” this HP update, dated 22 Apr 2009.  I have paused updates for seven days, but, when/if I release the seven day hold, I suspect that it will be downloaded and installed without the option.

        I feel that I have managed quite well without this update for over eleven years; why does MS feel that I need it now?  I have three HP printers on our home network, LaserJet 1100, HP Envy 110e All-in-One, and HP 7612 Wide Format Al-in-One.  HP Updates and HP Support Assistant are not looking for any updates.  Which of these printers is calling for this update through Windows Update?  One of them, or all of them?

        If you run a Windows pro version block drivers update in GP.
        If you are on Home version block drivers in ‘device installation settings’
