Pulling up a previous question placed last year, there was some disagreement about updating of drivers.
DriverMax tells me I have 14 out of date,should I care?
The other program, Driver Manager led me along a path which I thought was free, only to be presented with a $25 bill for registering and no free option.
That is now uninstalled.
The general previous opinion was that updating of drivers was best from manufacturers sites but they don't always make it clear as to how to go about it.
As a general rule only update drivers if you are having problems. Updating drivers can create problems with such programs as the above. Regardless if you create a system restore before running these drivers update programs, you could end up with a BOD and find you cannot get to safe mode.
14 Drivers ? BIOS, leave well alone, graphics card should be updated if required from the manufacturers site, use Windows update for day to day stuff, update your anti virus, malware and firewall software as necessary, printers, CD/DVD drivers are usually not required to be updated, router is best left alone..what else is there to worry about ? As others have said many times over the years, do not bother with such programs. Keep your hard disc defragmented now and again and use a program such as CCleaner to tidy up excess unwanted files etc and all should be fine.
