HP desktop Windows 1803 update wdf violation bsod

Hey guys, to fix the WDF_VIOLATION BSOD, you will need to boot into the recovery enviroment, open CMD. Then you will need to ensure you know which partition your Windows is installed on. Then you will need to rename or delete the “HpqKbFiltr.sys” driver and once you’ve done that you can restart and Windows will boot sucessfully.This took us an entire day to locate and fix but it was well worth it, we really didn’t like the idea of remaging every PC with an image created pre-broken update. Hopefully this fix works for you also.

start a cmd prompt and navigate to the next directory:


del hpqkbfiltr.sys

Close Menu
