According to Mike Nash, HP Vice President, the company has released an updated Conexant audio driver today that is available from both HP’s site and through Microsoft’s Windows Update. Yesterday, word spread that an audio driver that has existed since 2015 records every keystroke made on the keyboard.
For those looking for it, the updated (supposedly, fixed) driver is Softpaq 79420 (sp79420).
You can download it by searching for your specific HP model here: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers. Then, look in the list of available drivers for your PC and locate the updated driver.
