Aaaaa... I don't understand.

I have a HP P1606dn laser printer. It works very well, does everything I ask and doesn't give me any trouble.


In SYSTEM PREFERENCES / PRINT & SCAN / OPTIONS & SUPPLIES / GENERAL TAB it says the driver version is 5.0


Today I see a software update for printer driver software for my HP printer to version 2.13 (?) If I click the 'more' link, it goes to where it says the driver version is 5.0 (?)


It looks to me like this is either going to down-rev my driver or do nothing.


I don't think I want this to install unless someone can give me a good reason why I should.



How do I get rid of this update notification?
