Driver updates drive me bonkers!  Can anyone recommend to me, what they feel the best Driver updater for a Windows System is.  Free, or paid, I don't care I just want to know what you think is the best and easy is good too.

The user...and drivers should only be updated under one of two circumstances:

 

    a.  User has problem with system and suspects/knows that a given driver is damaged and the root cause of problems.

 

    b.  Driver is updated by manufacturer to overcome known problem...or to provide new/improved functionality not previously available.

 

No one needs driver-update software developed by anyone...in sptie of the assertions/claims that may be made.

Most driver update programs are useless at best if not outright scams.  Driver update programs are totally unnecessary.
