I have my HP 2570 connected as a network printer through my router to my Desktop and my Laptop. Am using Windows 7 SP1. When I run Windows Update on my laptop, most times it shows a driver
update for the 2570 as an optional update. It hasn't done this on the desktop since I installed the printer eons ago. The printer seems to work just fine on either machine.
View Update History on my laptop shows many installation of the driver -- too many to try to count.
Why does Windows Update offer the optional update as often as it does and what can I do to prevent it?
