Insider Preview Ghost Updates


Honorable Member
Build 10130. I have two updates showing which I believe are ghosts. They will not install.
There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again
later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact
support for information, this may help:

• Hewlett-Packard - Imaging, Other hardware - Null Fax - HP
Photosmart 7520 series - Error 0x80070490

• Hewlett-Packard - Imaging, Other hardware - Null Print - HP
Photosmart 7520 series - Error 0x80070103

The registry keys to get rid of these are no longer present in windows 10.
How can I make these go away?

At present Microsoft's update section in the windows 10 preview allows for very little user interaction. You could try opening up system properties (right click on the start icon and choose 'system'), look under the hardware tab, Device installation settings and check 'never install drivers from windows update' although we've had varying degrees of success with this setting but it might be worth trying anyway.
