After Microsoft released an operating system update, the driver may not be a perfect fit between the OS and the hardware.
So, if you want to update the driver yourself, you’ll have to disable the policy you’re about to configure, update the device, and then set the policy up again.
That said, with a little preparation to minimize the hassle, we think you’ll find it worth the effort. First, we’re going to use Device Manager to find the hardware IDs for the device in question, and then we’re going to use Group Policy Editor to block installation or updating of the device that matches those IDs.
Before you get started, though, you should make sure that the device has the driver version you want installed and that everything’s working properly.
If this occurs it is important that the drivers are updated.
Drivers are the piece of software that tells your computer how to talk to the specific hardware you have installed or connected to your computer.
