My computes keeps bugging me about HP drivers that need to be updated. I do not have any HP hardware and will not have any HP hardware in the future.

I already tried the HP manual driver removal twice: en&lc=en&product=3689344&rule=1376

The HP driver keeps wanting to update itself. I put it on the ignore list, but even then it will continue nagging me when a new version is ready from HP.

How do I prevent drivers (or software) wanting to update? How do I completely remove this driver/update from my computer?
