Uninstallable Win-10 Updts. on 4/13/21 voided digital signature for Officejet 4500 drivers/won't wrk

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion dv4 Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Uninstallable Windows-10 Updates. on 4/13/21 voided the current digital signature for Officejet 4500 printer drivers.

Tried downloading latest HP print driver for this printer, & it makes no difference.

Your printer driver for the Officejet 4500 doesn't work any more, even though it is a digitally signed driver !

All Officejet 4500 printer functions worked, until these latest updates from WIndows-10 were downloaded automatically.

AND- They cannot be uninstalled using the HP Uninstall operation.

 

HP needs to update their print driver for this printer, because the one you now provide in HP Support doesn't work any more.

OR- Provide a  downloadable 'patch' to override the 'Pause Updates' function under 'Windows Update' which currently limits the pausing of updates to 30 days max.

After 30 days, you must accept updates that will Officejet 4500 printers to non-functional status.

 

Right now: your recommended driver doesn't work; you cannot stop new updates after 30 days which will stop again the  printer functions; and, you cannot 'Uninstall' these designated updates because Microsoft has designates them as Uninstallable. 

 

Please give us a solution.

As far as HP changing Windows 10 updates, that will not happen. Have you tried using the drivers that Microsoft provides? The do not always have all the functions but at least you can use your machine until HP can fix the issue with the driver. Often changes happen that manufactures like HP have not been made aware of until they happen and it can take time to fix an issue.

If you find the information provided useful or solves your problems, help other users find the solution easier by giving kudos and marking my post as an accepted solution.

How would a Microsoft driver for the HP Officejet 4500 be identified & accessed for the purpose of an HP download ?

Particularly, what Microsoft site/ product ID information will be needed to access this driver for an HP download ?

And if there are any special procedures needed to download a Microsoft printer driver to an HP laptop, what are they ?
