Need to reapply HP driver updates after every windows update

A colleague has been told by "someone" (I think HP support), that you should apply the HP updates each time you do a windows update.

Although this sounds like "best practice", it also makes the whole update process a blinkin' nightmare.

Does anyone do this as a policy...?

Any feedback gratefully received

Re: Need to reapply HP driver updates after every windows update

I have seen this advise too, but never saw the logic or any official documentation.

This would turn a short hotfix + reboot into a drawn out hotfix + reboot + long PSP reinstallation + another reboot.

Throw in that HP's driver sets are more likely to play up than any Windows Update these days and you've also got a more risky process than ever before.
