Windows update seems to miss a lot and i would like a program (hopefully portable. If not, it doesnt matter) that i can use to automatically install drivers. Anyone know any?

Dont use Windows for your drivers to update , can be hit / miss at times.

 

If you PC is running fine , then why Update them ? { If it aint Broke - leave it }.

 

If you must Update any Drivers - Then use the Manufacturers Website to do so , for Mobo / GPU / Wifi Card / etc.

Programs that monitor your drivers will find all sorts of drivers that "they" believe should be replaced.  The problem is that these drivers may not need to be replaced, and the drivers they suggest may or may not (usually) be those from the computer's manufacturer.  It's a great idea, but it doesn't work.

 

If you have a device which seems to have a problem open the Device Manager and see if the is a yellow warning icon or red error icon next to any of the devices.  If there are any click on the device, then double click on the device, then click on the Driver tab.  Uninstall the driver, when you restart the computer a new driver will be installed.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
