"Windows 7 Driver Download
Windows 7 Drivers Latest Download. Microsoft Certified. (Recommended)
www.Windows-7.DriverUpdate.net "

 

So there are links to this site everywhere. I am skeptical. Has anyone gone there, used them? Why? Does it end up as a subscription service to solve the problems created?

 

I have a 5 year old Xerox all-in-one that is not compatible with Win7. Seems like Xerox cannot support it, or won't support it. I just don't want to create a new set of problems.

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Drivers should...be obtained from:

 

  a.  System manufacturer's website, if laptop or other OEM system (HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.)

 

  b.  Motherboard CD or component manufacturer's website, if system is self-built.

 

  c.  The CD which came with the system/component (reflects known working drivers).

 

The drivers available via Windows Update...should generally NOT be used unless you are totally desperate and cannot find them anywhere else or any other way, IMO.

Pretty much my thoughts. I see the link everywhere and on respected sites. I guess anything for the money. So sad.
