Driver Software for PC - Anybody know any free?

  Da-B-Man 01:04 05 Feb 2009

Hi there
I'm going to attempt a fresh install of xp as my aging P3(yes i still have one) is getting tirelessly slow.

Does anyone know of a FREE driver software program that you can install onyour PC and can get all the drivers for you and back them up on a USB so i don't have to trawl the internet for them afterwards?

Also any reconmendations of a good free firewall and anti virus would be grateful (not resource heavy as am only playing about with 384MB ram)

thanks in advance :)

thankyou brundle and buteman, those are just the ticket!

any ideas on a low resource firewall or antivirus?

or will the standard xp firewall and windows defender do?

Windows Defender is anti-spyware, not antivirus. This is a good read; click here

Sunbelt or Comodo firewalls are apparently well liked.
