Windows 7: Windows 7 Update causes conflict with Scanner Driver

Windows 7 bits? How do you tell?
Windows 7 Update causes conflict with Scanner Driver

I need advice to repair conflict with Windows 7 update which causes my HP notebook to not recognize scanner function of my HP printer. It says WAI driver missing, but I never deleted any drivers. I no longer have disk with drivers. I have repaired this before with doing a system restore to before update, but is extreme solution to have to keep repeting and causes other problems. Can you offer help/advice?

Windows 7 bits? How do you tell?

Also, my HP printer/scanner prints just fine before and after update. Scan function worked before, but not after update (is same machine).

Just to help other members can you give us the specific update number that appears to have caused your problem?

If the update is NOT a security patch update then you DO NOT have to install this update.

I would UNINSTALL the offending update and then select the hide function for this update.
