DriverAgent.com is a good site for scanning your system - but the results are a bit confusing (IMO). I use it when experiencing problems as a possible "pointer" to the affected driver.

Are you having any problems with your system? Most people here recommend the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" strategy for drivers. But if there are some issues updating drivers is often the only way to fix them. Also, please be aware that when new drivers are released - they are hopefully "mature". But at times they'll cause more problems - so update with care.

That being said, here's a link on how to update your drivers: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-update-a-windows-hardware-driver/
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
