I guess I don't see the problem
Microsoft critical updates are generated for the sake of system security.
Microsoft optional updates...are user preference items that have nothing to do with O/S security.
Microsoft driver updates...are best ignored, IMO. The best place to get updates for drivers...is the website of the system manufacturer or the component manufacturer.
I know nothing about HP systems and HP software...but I'm sure that they have documentation at their website...for any suggested downloads for the systems they make.
