<<Using the prog recommended, it showed 41 good drivers and 17 bad drivers.>>
<<I probably missed it...but I looked at our tutorial and I don't see a program recommended for checking out drivers. What program might that be, please? >>
"How to update a Windows hardware driver
......However, in the event that you are unable to find a driver section, there are a number of handy sites which collect all the drivers available into an alphabetical list by manufacturer name. My favorite is www.driverzone.com. It has an up-to-date list of available drivers, and is very easy for novices to navigate around"
<<I've never seen any program classify drivers as "good/bad" and I'm curious as to how such would be determined>>
Run 'driverzone' you'll see drivers classified as "good"/"bad"
<<But...if you don't have the problems which a given driver update may address, there's no point in fiddling with a working system.>>
"Why do I need to update?
Also as time goes by, hardware manufacturers release new versions of their drivers to fix bugs, increase performance, increase stability on your computer, or add new features. When these drivers are released it is recommended that you upgrade your driver to take advantage of these new enhancements"
