Hi, I'm Ron. Thank you for asking a question. Regardless of the update, are you having usb problems?
It is a microsoft update not HP correct?
It's on the HP site, but appears to be a driver update for the Microsoft Host Controller. I don't know whose it is. It's offered on the HP site as part of the upgrade to 7 from Vista. No problems noted with USB devices.
That is a HP update.
if you are not having any problems, it is not necessary to install it.
Are you still there?
Do you understand what I said?
If you are still concerned, I can contact HP and get a solution for the install.
Any manufacture drivers should only be installed if necessary.
if it's being offered because the driver caused problems on this machine, whether or not it's manefested, then wouldn't it be best to fix it before a problem develops?
That is, on other machines in this model class.
Not necessarily, it all depends on what components you have.
No problems on this one so far.
It is a general update.
Only install if there are problems.
The same goes for all drivers.
I'm not the primary user of this machine. Just trying to prevent having to deal with it later when I've moved on to somethiong else.
if you don't think it's necessary then I guess it's ok to let it go. just trying to be thorough.
Sorry I had technical difficulties.
Those update are for systems with a problem.
