screen rotation locked - Intel Virtual Button driver issue

HP Spectre X360 - 15-Ch009ng
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Since last week screen rotation is not working; The problem started after a pushed update from HP (HID...something). Could not roll it back with windows update nor system restore.  


Then tried all suggestions from

The other websites...change registry entries, disable sensors and last resort I did a clean install 


Finally I think I pinned the problem down to the Intel Virtual Buttons: if I uninstall from device manager and restart all is fine (screen rotates). This is true until I connect to the Internet and drivers are automatically downloaded-the screen turns back to the notRotated. If I perform this in tent mode its easy to see when drivers are downloaded as the screen flicks up-side-down...


Tried different Virtual Button Drivers but no luck

Automatic from device manager






What more can I do?
