I have all the updates for Windows XP Pro, but in the Driver Updates category there is an updated driver for my onboard network adapter:
"VIA Technologies, Inc. network software update released on May 30 2003"
The default Microsoft driver that was there when I first installed Windows didn't work properly, and I installed the driver from the Abit driver CD. I did have problems with getting this computer onto the network which are now sorted out.
Would it be a good idea to install this update, since it is from VIA Technologies, or should I just leave it (since everything is now working OK)?
Back last year Windows Update advised me that there was a driver update for my Alcatel USB Broadband modem. I downloaded and installed it and had nothing but trouble, so had to revert back to the original.
I agree with -pops-, always go to the manufacturer's site.
