    Try Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings > Hardware tab > Device Installation Settings
    Under "Do you want to automatically download manufacturers apps and custom icons...
    set the no radio button.

    OK, I tried that. Is it a fix or just a workaround?

    Perhaps there are Samsung and Intel drivers available which are later than what Microsoft is giving you?

    It's worth checking for the latest drivers from those manufacturers themselves.

    I'd check with Samsung and Intel to see if the drivers are matching up. If you're good there then disabling the automatic downloads are probably the way to go for now.

    Same for Logitech driver

    I've had the same thing with a driver for Logitech webcam C-170 installing every day since May 14. So far, I can't find any way to hide it or stop it. I've followed Jerry's advice and will see what happens. The installation doesn't require a restart, so I don't even notice when it happens. As far as I can tell, it's a fairly old driver. Also, it's the same one every time.

    I eventually reinstalled Win 10 from scratch because of other issues. See my post about Camera not recognized. I was also having issues with Microsoft store apps stopped working.

    The fresh install seems to have cured all these issues.

    Note that I haven't reinstalled all the programs I used, just the ones I need. I am also now using a local account.

    I suspect that the problems all derived from upgrading from Windows 7. Must have been some incompatibility with something on my Win 7 system, although is was a fairly fresh setup.
