Recently I tried to install updates. The important updates were successful, but there was one optional update (a driver update for my HP w1907 monitor) that I keep getting an "Access Denied" error code for. I am using an administrator account on my PC, so it shouldn't be doing this...right?

Anyways, there has been no change in how well the monitor operates, but my Windows Vista keeps nagging me upon every start-up that it has found "new" hardware (my monitor) and wants to install the drivers for it. It can find the driver, but it still gets the same error code.

I am using Vista Home Premium SP2, if that is relevant.

This has never happened before. Any help would be appreciated! :huh:

My old thread is long past dead, but I am still recieving this error.
Can somebody help me with this please?

Updating non-Microsoft drivers through Windows updates is usually a bad idea.
MS has a history of providing bad, wrong, botched drivers.

Your best option is to hide that update.
If you still need to update/reinstall your printer driver, go to HP site.
