Hi ! Always use your manufacture for driver up dates. Don't fix it if it ain't broken. If you don't have success finding drivers from the manufacture and you suspect a driver. Try this software. Do not up date drivers if your not having a problem and only if you have tried every thing else
I do not recommend 3rd party programs for drivers, but I have had great success with this one.

Hi! I see no replies to this!! Times are changing my friends. This is a great little program. Windows just said I had a up date. Just for fun I checked Slim Drivers and It was giving me the same driver up date. I messed up and didn't take a screen shot of Slim drivers, but after the windows up date, Slim drivers shows no up dates. How cool is that?? Here's the driver windows up dated.
PS I know the best place for drivers is the manufacture, but would someone just check this software out and give it a up or down.
Thanks!!

SlimDrivers has been around for a while and is one of the better driver updaters. Just be careful when installing (see quote below), and create a Restore Point before using it.

Thanks koala! It seems like all freeware is bundling their software with PUP's. Good point about being careful. I have found that the best sites to down load freeware are filehippo and Major Geeks. There's a software you can down load to help avoiding those dang PUP's. It's called unchecky. Always choose the custom install also.
Unchecky - Keeps your checkboxes clear
PS Slim drivers gives you the option to create a back up and you can always undo the up dated driver. I think Slim Driver has really improved.
Thanks for your reply!

I was impressed with Unchecky in the beginning but actually is batting 50% now for me with catching Java extras and not touching Adobe extras. The the other day I did a CdBunerXP install and it missed those checkmarks also. Maybe the bums have smartened up to what that little devil can do?
