I have this weird update in windows update on windows 7.
Full details from windows update:
Intel Corporation - Display - 12/14/2017 12:00:00 AM - 10.18.14.4889
Download size: 86.7 MB
You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.
Update type: Important
Intel Corporation Display driver update released in December 2017
More information: http://sysdev.microsoft.com/support/default.aspx
Help and Support: http://support.microsoft.com/select/?target=hub
You can see it's "Important". I don't have "Optional" turned on.
I do have "Get updates for other Microsoft Products" aka Microsoft Update turned on, but I doubt that's relevant.
I have Device Installation settings set to "Never".
There's no KB number.
The more information link brings up a blank page and blank address bar in firefox for me. In IE it redirected to
E:\WESPortal_down\default.htm no joke.
DuckDuckGo'ing the title brings this page: http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=db4db1a5-4140-4d80-a63e-c0447c791353
Which provides almost no information, certainly no commentary, save this: " Driver Model: Intel(R) Iris(TM) Pro Graphics 5200".
And you can't dl the update manually from that page.
The Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 driver download page doesnt have any drivers that match in version number or date: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/81493/Intel-Iris-Pro-Graphics-5200
It appears from the net that things like this have happened before but I can't find any discussion on this particular one.
In response to comment, to further clarify what the the actual question is: WU is presenting me with an update about which there is literally NO information. I do not trust updates from WU unconditionally, because many have gone wrong in the past. A small percent, to be sure, but dozens maybe hundreds to date. So I ask myself, is this a good or a bad update? Literally the only piece of evidence suggesting that it's good is that it is suggested by WU. That's not enough. So I'm looking for some corroborating evidence that this is actually a good update, and not a hack, and not a corrupted or accidental update.
Do you have any info about what this update or somewhere I can learn about this update?
