1)
 
I have downloaded Win7Vista_151719 an update from intel and have tried installing and restart my laptop several times but the installation doesn't seems to register or take effect.
 
I am only aware of it after i checked with Intel® Driver Update Utility 2.0 again to see if im missing any further updates and it says i still haven't make installation through the downloaded package yet.
 
 
2)
 
further more i would like to ask if there is any recommendations on how to find out if all my other drivers are fully updated. thanks.

Honestly...the only time that a user needs to update or uninstall drivers (IME) is when a driver is causing problems, IMO.

 

Just like the system BIOS...a working driver is a good driver.

 

Are you having problems of some sort that mandate a driver replacement?

oic. alright then, i will leave it alone. this old laptop is unaccceptabily slow even after wiping out malware with the help of you guys. i thought that could be the drivers. launching programs like firefox and thunderbird takes a bit too long.

The drivers for browsers...are not like the drivers for audio, video, etc.

 

If your browsers are giving you problems...first thing I would suggest is to uninstall all browser add-ons, minimizing unnecessary downloads and programs running.

 

The other approach I take to browsers is...uninstall, then reinstall, leaving all the unnecessary junk that browsers try to stall along with the browser.  IE is the only browser that I know of that doesn't try to install "this/that" along with the browser, which is why I like it.

wow... this is the first time i heard someone says IE is good. Alright, i will uninstall some of the add-on. I really like firefox though, can't get rid of my distaste for IE still. THanks =)

I did not say that "IE is good" nor did I bash it as some like to do (just because they like to bash anything).  I said that I don't have to worry about all the junk that is additionally installed on a system using Firefox or Chrome.  I consider that a big plus, but others seem to think that's not important :).

 

I'm not a "fanboy" of very many things..least of all computer browsers :).
