HP LaserJet 401 Printing Issues With Windows 10

Client upgraded PCs to new with Windows 10. Issue is the ones with an HP LaserJet 401 printers the driver installed fine and it would print fine. After shutdown and with printer down and then start it up again it would not print. It would also load the built in USB driver disk from the Printer. (The cause of the problem). To fix this go into Device Manager (Right Click This PC. Select properties then Device Manager).  Under DVD/CD-ROM drives you will see HP Smart Install USB Device. Right click and select update driver. Specify to search automatically. It will then download the update from MS (which basically disables it) and then restart the PC. You should be able to print again.
