I use Double Driver.
2.06 MB download.
Doesn't look like it'll work on all of your systems, though.

Double Driver is a very simple and useful tool which not only allows you to view all the drivers installed on your system but also
allows you to backup, restore, save and print all chosen drivers.

Operating System :: Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 (32-bit or 64-bit)

Thank you. It's the XP system which requires immediate attention so that looks like it will do nicely. And FREE ! Thanks again. :thumbsup:

I've had moderate success with Device Doctor. It's not a backup utility but it's one of the few "updaters" that isn't just a scam to get you to buy something.
