    Latest version of Win10 made my printer unusable. Had to uninstall the update to get my printer back. Done this twice so far. It's just a matter of time before Microsoft kills it again. Is there a driver available somewhere that will survive Win10 updates? Thanks for the help! I love my old printer which does everything I need and does it well.

    No such driver available
    Disable Windows Updates
    Navigate:
    Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Access Services
    In Services window, scroll down to Windows Update
    Turn off the process (right-click on the process -> click Properties -> select Disable)

    Thanks for the suggestion. However I can't seem to find those options - control panel->admin tools , etc. - on my computer desktop interface. I get settings, etc. Can you help me navigate to the right place?

    Update - I used the 'search' box to the right of the start icon and searched for admin tools and services. then I selected the option that I think disabled the updates. We will see if that works out.
    THANKS!

    Glad it worked out.
    In Control Panel, Change "View" at top of page on right to "Large Icons"
    You should see "Admin Tools"
    See you later
