Software and driver update checker pops up every once in a while

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Every time I tab out an application or just when I'm watching something. The software and driver update checker keeps popping up. It gets annoying sometimes and I can't seem to find a solution. It started happening after a windows update.

Welcome to the HP Community.

Be Aware:

Do not respond to individuals who post phone numbers or email addresses.

Do not respond to individuals who ask you to provide private information in a public Post.

These people might be scammers trying to steal your information / money.

Might be a message from HP Support Assistant.

 

HPSA - newer format version (9.6.x and beyond)

Open HP Support Assistant

If you have not done so, sign in using your HP Account credentials

Click the Settings wheel

UNCHECK (or leave) the two main notifications

Click More settings

UNCHECK all the boxes except the last one (and this one, too, if you want to do so)

 

Look around - set / check other options.

 

Close HPSA

Restart the computer and log in

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

What else?

Make Windows behave itself.

 

Settings > System > Notifications & actions

Switch notifications to OFF

 

That's a bit extreme - it does significantly reduce the noise.

You can also try choosing the options (instead of shutting off everything).

Personally, I leave notifications OFF - If I want to know something, I check it.

Either I did it wrong or it didn't work because it's still happening very so often.
