Win 10 update installs newer problematic Intel GPU drivers, are ones here outdated?

Level 7
The drivers from windows update are causing an error at every boot (igfxHK.exe stopped working) and possibly some other issues.
Downgrading to the ones on this page solves it but windows update wants to and does install it again.
I remember there being a way to stop drivers in windows update and I can probably find that solution and stick with the ones asus provides.
Just posting if anyone knows something. Is the drivers on the page old? Will they be updated? (to ones that doesn't crash)

Is this related? Is that included with drivers or is it separate?
Should I download my drivers from Intel to fix this? Or just contact Intel?

In the meantime I will try to use the “Show or hide updates” troubleshooter to stop the driver from installing. If you got alternatives let me know.

The problematic driver is and the newest on the asus download page is

Use the driver that works for the igpu, here is a video to show how to configure windows updates start at 4:50.

I installed the one from the asus website and then I hid the intel gpu driver windows update from installing using the link I posted. It seems to work, the new driver does not install anymore.
About the 4:50 thing, I had no trouble stopping it from installing if that's what you meant. Just ran the asus drivers and downgraded the driver, rebooted and ran the hide tool thing.

I kind of found a workaround to the problem as I was writing the post, I was just curious if the driver should be installed by anyone since it isn't on the website. Or if I was the only one with this problem, is that driver broken for everyone?
I tried the intel update thing, and it told me to update to version 15, but also to use drivers from manufacturers if they had any available. I didn't install it.
Will asus release a new driver? Should I never update any drivers from windows update if asus has older ones on their site?

If you have a pcie gpu there's no need to install the iGPU driver, I don't install it.
