How do I stop this update?

This is what I see:

          Windows Update

Update status

          Updates are available.

          • Surface - HIDClass - 4/26/2018 12:00:00 AM -

          Status:  Waiting to install

What I have is a PC, definitely NOT a Surface Tablet and I have no touch screen !

Can I get rid of this?  Will it disappear on its own?

I do believe that this is seriously interfering with my Windows 10 updates.

Windows 10  Version 1709  Build 16299.431
