If everything is working fine, it's best to leave as it is. G

Just be aware that these programs aren't infallible. I've used driver max and all driver updates have been useless to me. Importing and exporting have been fine. With device doctor only one, and that was a vital one for a friends laptop, worked. Remember if you have no internet connection for the pc/laptop then these programs won't work.

Certainly agree with Crossbow7. Double driver will be best used to burn your drivers to disc for future use without the generic windows drivers. (An option you should take IMHO.)
Download SIW to see what hardware you have installed and if you have no internet connection on the pc, download using another pc then transfer it to a usb flash drive/ drive and run from there on the problem pc.
Should give you details of hardware.

SIW needs to be saved not run as its .exe file runs from new all the time.
