Default 1809 and HP printer driver incompatible

So, on my new build with 1809 it appears that the printer driver from HP isn't compatible. I have an HP Envy 5640. This thread on their forums is marked solved and closed... although it you read the other posts it clearly isn't solved I love when they do that...

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Printe...e/td-p/6859579

Anyway, I don't have a fix for it yet. Looks like I'll be trying to keep at least one PC on 1803 or making a VM perhaps, until HP or MS make a fix. I tried all the recommended solutions I can find, including the ones in the HP thread, no luck.

2019... why are printer drivers still such a bugger??

That's pretty odd... could be one of the new Windows Defender features? Can't quite remember if it was new in 1803 or 1809 though. If you go Settings >Update & Security > Windows Security > Open Windows Security > App & Browser Control > Exploit protection settings, try turning off all of them. Could also try turning off Device security > Memory integrity if it's on.

If any of that works, then the driver isn't well coded and HP should update it...but who knows if they will

Thanks JD. Those ideas had be excited but nope. No change. The Device Security tells me "Standard hardware security not supported", so nothing on there.

Anybody else notice that the latest updates seem to have toggled the autohide taskbar function off?
