Device drivers and windows update in windows 7

I am having a problem with my installshield project when the target OS is windows 7 (ultimate).
When I install on windows 7, all looks ok and the drivers I have included are installed.
However when I connect my device - the hardware wizard intrudes and keeps using the windows update (to find a new version!) rather then the driver I am supplying. I am actually supplying a signed driver, and it is not part of windows update so why is behaviour happenning? It takes quite a while for the intrusive windows update to give up.

This is not the case in either vista or xp.

Can anyone help me?

Have you checked the driver version of the Windows Update driver package?

You should note that starting with Windows 7 the 'AllSignersEqual' group policy is enabled by default (Setup ranks all digitally signed drivers equally).
